About the Dress
As always, Joannalsm's apparels are meant to paint a picture, tell the audience a story from head to toe. Going back to Singapore's and Mandy's culture and identity, we have create a gown together through this partnership.
We have hand-dyed Singapore's national costume in our iconic red and white on veg-based silk, known as gajji silk. There are snippets of Singapore's culture and heritage in this dress - iconic Chinese mandarin collar, India's Rangoli art is inspired by the Peranakan tiles and Black and White architecture. We complete the look with our take of Singapore's skyline through beading embellishment.
