New Wives Tales

AFTERNOON TEA & NEW WIVES TALES

Please save the date for afternoon tea with our handpicked designers and artisans, who are preserving meaningful Singapore traditions and stories reinterpreted through modern heirloom designs.

 

 To ensure that meanings behind our traditions are not lost in the passage of time, we have brought together a fashion designer, milliner, tea pot artisan and a confectioner, to explain Singapore traditions and heritage.

  

We're starting with old wedding traditions and stories, to retell them at a collective showcase called "New Wives Tales", at the National Design Centre. Discover contemporary interpretations of the Qi Pao, Si Dian Jin, head accessories, while cultivating an appreciation of our local rituals through the sampling of confectionery and tea.

 

We can't wait to share New Wives Tales with you. If you can't join us on 14th April, the showcase will be on until 22 April.

 

Date: 14 April 2018
Time: 12pm to 6pm
Venue: National Design Centre #02-02
111 Middle Rd, 188969
