Following our previous Chinese New Year designer shopping guide, we present to you five local designer brands for your Lunar New Year retail therapy – just to add a little orient touch to your wardrobe.

From Khoon Hooi's modern interpretation of Qi Pao to Melinda Looi's eccentric Chinese Folk Art inspired Chinese New Year collection, here is how to look bold and chic for the coming festivities.



Khoon Hooi QiPao 2019 collection

It is all about details and his signature craftsmanship of embroidery for this year's CNY collection by Khoon Hooi.

Featuring vibrant hues, the collection features classic elements such as jade, agate, pearl and handcrafted flower buttons, that gives the pieces a gentle, elegant finish.

And modelled by actress Jojo Goh herself, the designs are simply irresistible.

Ong Shunmugam Cheongsam 2019

Seamlessly integrating the classic codes of Cheongsam – jacquard, dragon and floral lacing – with modern silhouettes and designs, we love how the Ong Shunmugam Cheongsam 2019 collection parade the beauty of the Orient with a whisper of youthfulness.

And this particular piece with purple and green jacquard structured sleeves is definitely our favourite!

Infused with nostalgia, Innai Red CNY 2019 collection stays loyal to the iconic embroideries and body-hugging silhouette of Cheongsam with a pastel palette.

ALIA B. Resort 18/19

Even though it is not technically a Chinese New Year collection, the Alia B. Resort 18/19 is definitely the perfect option for ladies who seek simplicity and urban aesthetics for the festivities.

Mirroring its big sister label Alia Bastamam,'s minimalist approach, the collection is tinted in a soft blush tone which delivers a romantic temperament with its sleek silhouette.
