So, on the occasion we seek something new, fresh and possibly even exciting, where do they go? Well, not very far.You no longer have to travel “off the beaten track” for some really unique finds. Right in the heart of Orchard Road, Mandarin Gallery boasts some really awesome multi-label boutiques carrying independent labels from all over the world.
Local influencer Melissa C Koh exudes elegance in a gorgeous strappy-back Run After dress, a signature back-baring look commonly seen on her Instagram feed. What you might not know is that, Run After, stocked at What Women Want, is Melissa’s own label, which she launched at Digital Fashion Week late last year. We asked her why she decided to carry her brand in What Women Want at Mandarin Gallery.
