Fashion fanatics: we’re bringing you the exclusive scoop on what’s got us excited in the Expat Living fashion department this month. From the latest collection launches to online shopping deals, cute boutique openings and new brands to know, here’s all you need to know about shopping in Singapore.
Glamorous giving is back!
Our favourite clearance sale is returning on 18 and 19 September! Held in support of the Singapore Committee for UN Women, the fashion, accessories and homeware sale event was started by local jewellery label Stones that Rock.
What’s new? The Glamorous Giving No Reserve Auction is jointly organised with Singapore’s only full-service auction house, HotLotz! It’s the event’s first-ever online auction, where shoppers will get the chance to bid for exclusive items donated by the vendors, with all proceeds going to the Singapore Committee for UN Women.
All you need to do is register on hotlotz.com, then browse the sale catalogue, review the auction lots, and check the bidding. The HotLotz online platform allows you to put in your maximum bid. The system then automatically puts in a bid for you (in the stated minimum bid increments) until you win or your maximum amount is reached. The auction will open for bidding on 9 September at 12pm, and closes on 20 September at 8pm. Bidders will receive an email at the end of the auction to let them know if they have won.
At the sale, look forward to a fab line-up of returning favourites like Ria Menorca SEA and Desti Saint, alongside fresh additions like ethical swimwear brand UBU, affordable luxury womenswear label Jo Kilda and sustainable resortwear line Baliza.

On top of our lust list is this black silk kaftan ($429) from MAH Collection, a resort range from Danish expat Ondina Montgomery. Heading to a pool party? Wear it over your bikini and let it drape loosely over your curves! Or, cinch your waist for definition, and throw on heels for a night out.
