Raffles Fashion and Jewellery Designers designed this collection drawing inspiration from the history of Arab Street; fashion icon, singer and film actress Saloma; and street art. With the support from the Urban Redevelopment Authority, One Kampong Gelam and Arab Street merchants, this collaboration aims to recapture the textile culture, heritage, and memories of Arab Street. All fabrics and materials used for this fashion showcase were sourced from Arab Street.
In conjunction with Ramadan, Raffles Fashion and Jewellery Designers have designed collections inspired by the history of Arab Street; fashion icon, singer, and film actress Saloma; and street art, showcased at the launch of Cahaya Ramadan on 10 April 2021 (Sat) at the Malay Heritage Centre. Snippets can be found in the gallery below, from the Cahaya Ramadan livestream event by Visit Kampong Gelam, where Raffles Fashion and Jewellery Designers’ designs were showcased at the launch officiated by Minister for National Development & Minister-in-charge of Social Services, Mr Desmond Lee at the Malay Heritage Centre.
This fashion collection was well-received by the supporting organisations and partners like the Urban Redevelopment Authority, One Kampong Gelam, Arab Street merchants, and artiste Najip Ali.
