With an archive of over 100 garments on display, Asian Civilisations Museum’s latest exhibition explores the fashion journey of Paris-based Singaporean designer Andrew Gn, taking us through his roots and global influences. The show touches on the specifics of material, technique, tradition, art historical movements from both East and West, blending them all together to uncover Singapore’s cultural identity in the form of dress.
There is also an engaging interactive component where visitors will receive an RFID tag that can be activated to virtually collect Andrew's iconic motifs at designated stations throughout the exhibition. Using the collected motifs, visitors can create their own unique dress design at the augmented reality booth towards the end of the exhibition. There are also handicraft stations for one to try constructing a one-dart-style bodice on the given mini mannequins, or decorate your personal wearable embellished collar with ribbons and faux rhinestones provided.
