Fuchsia Lane's new Fashion Suite

I first got to know Vivienne a few years back through a mutual friend and jewellery aficionado Sabrina. At that time Vivienne had just started her own label Fuchsia Lane, the culmination of her love for design and style. We clicked over her racks of lovely oriental-inspired re-engineered tees at the MAAD market inside Red Dot Design Museum and have been fast friends since!

Vivienne's sunshine personality, dogged persistance in pursuing her dream and her unbelievable customer service makes her a rare breed. More importantly her devotion to her craft is what makes each Fuchsia Lane design such a classic must-have for the chinoiserie lover. I am almost embarrassed to admit that I own quite a number of Fuchsia Lane pieces but hey, my blog is named Oriental Rose, no?

When Vivienne had her first solo fashion showcase"In Love With Passion" at the Arts House last October, I was 5 months pregnant and busy steam ironing her then-latest collection hours before the launch. I remember thinking, dang I wish I could fit into these beauties! Fast forward 9 months later and here I am! Making a long-awaited visit to her new fashion suite where customers can enjoy trying on her creations in the comfort of her cosy atelier.

Entering her new fashion suite was like swimming in a paradise of satins, silks, chiffons and laces.

These gorgeous chiffon scarves which you can customise with your initals in Swarovski crystals caught my eye instantly. How cool are these?!

I could not resist the Sapphire Silk Top and Charleston Lace Skirt in Turquoise that I'm wearing above. As you can see, I'm clueless when it comes to posing for the camera and gee I still have lots of mummy weight to lose!!

And the woman behind it all.

I am so proud of this feisty lady!

Fuchsia Lane's fashion suite is open every Friday 12-7pm at #03-04, Red Dot Building, 28 Maxwell Road. You can also call 9748-6717 for appointments.
