Last Thursday 23rd May 2013, I was invited to attend an event and to witness an Italian fashion accessories house FURLA celebrated the opening of its world traveling pop-up showcase, Candybrissima at Paragon mall atrium in Singapore.  

Arriving at the event. 

Sherlene accompanied that night. She is also the person behind many beautiful outfit photos of mine that you saw on my blog. Say Hi to her! :) 

Another beautiful shot taken by the photographer at the event. 

The opening party was graced by the Ambassador of Italy to Singapore, H.E Paolo Crudele and his wife, Mdm Sara Crudele Fernandez, together with Mr. Alessandro Bartoli, CEO of FURLA Asia Pacific. After travelling various cities including Milan, Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Beijing, the much anticipated fashion-meets-art opening night was a summit of more than 200 guests including notable faces from the local fashion and arts scene; they include, New York based Singaporean actress Elizabeth Lazan, local film-maker, Royston Tan and award-winning Singaporean illustrator artist Tan Zi Xi.

The event was hosted by the beautiful Stephanie Carrington whom I really love talking to even though I only met her twice. She is a drop-dead gorgeous and super friendly person. 

The fun celebration event highlighted friends of FURLA making of their very own art version of the candy bags at the creative laboratory. MTV VJ, Hanli Hoefer, model and journalist, Stephanie Chai, project director for Blueprint 2013, Tracy Philips, local designer and artist Grace Tan celebrated the opening and kicked started with a showcase performance/creation. 
The guest performers created unique art designs of the Candy bag from deconstructed parts of a typical FURLA candy bag, using a variety of materials like yarn, chain, studs, cord, ribbons and more.

Celebrating the Candy Bag, FURLA’s worldwide best-seller, the Candybrissima World Tour is a worldwide travelling art installation and performance concept that showcases a pop-up creative laboratory featuring art students dressed in white lab coats, in a continuous assembly of one-of a kind of art designs of the Candy bag. Combining art and fashion in a live performance style, it is here in Singapore from May 24 to 25, giving local fashion, art and design enthusiasts a chance to go all out and put together their own version of the FURLA Candy bag. Singapore will be the last stop and closing performance for this unique show. 

In conjunction with Candybrissima’s show tour, FURLA also launched two special edition Candy Bags — Candy Sunset, which is the ombre-designed range that comes in four different assortment of colours and constructed in a clear, rubber body, and the Candy Cookie, which is the downsized and reinterpreted adaptation of the original Candy bag, available in a timeless charcoal hue and five different charming sugary shades. You can find Candy Sunset and Candy Cookie available at all FURLA boutiques.
