Lunar New Year Edit
3rd February 2016 by Fiona & Eve
So, the yearly affair has begun again with the search to find the best celebratory outfits for the Lunar New Year. The Lunar New Year, also known as Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, is happening on the 8th and 9th of February this year, although it is typically observed over a longer period. It is celebrated by communities all around the world, particularly in countries that follow the chinese calendar, for example Singapore and Malaysia. The Lunar New Year is a traditional festival of the Chinese, filled with exuberant colours, festive delicacies and precious moments spent with family and friends. This year is no different from last year for us at VGY, with the exception of refreshing new styles & unexplored fresh fabrics used in the designs leading up to this festive period.
With so much to choose from, we have narrowed down the top 4 best selling outfits in our boutique! Ps: All of these outfits have been given the mark of approval as best-sellers by our boutique customers!
First question that pops up whenever ADALIA catches our customer's attention - "What material is this?". And the answer to that question is PLEATED MACRO FABRIC of a composition of nylon and lycra. We were extremely impressed by its quality that we had decided to commit a full collective fully to it - that was how much admiration we had for the fabric. A timeless and classic style, in lightweight, non sheer and thick (enough to avoid a VPL) fabric, with that subtle shine to make you stand out amidst the rest - make this your basic statement piece that you can keep re-wearing for all your events. Did you know that you can easily alter the length of this piece as well? The seams are not sewn together, hence you can be assured that no thread run or damage will occur to the fabric. To alter it, simply lay the dress flat down on a table and align both sides properly, steady yourself and cut straight with a sharp pair of scissors.
Being practical doesn't mean that we have to cut down on our love for acquiring the latest styles. Instead, achieve a balance and get more value out of our outfits - what best way to do so other than to opt for a two piece set. For starters, you are already looking at getting 3 different looks from 2 key statement pieces. For a formal dinner look, pair the ADELAIDE top with a high waisted bottom, such as ALDER textured pants. ALDER has an extremely leg lengthening effect, apart from giving you a slimmer waist. For a casual chic look, we recommend tucking in simple top like SADIE, into ADELAIDE skirt. You are poised to be camera ready with a pair of nude flats in this outfit.
Spectacular, extravagant maxis have always been our signature. Designing for such a grand festive affair & with Valentine's day at the corner, we've decided to go oriental and also infuse a little romance in this number. High collars are creeping back slowly into the runway scene with their latest appearance on the Zimmermann Spring 2016 runway. Exude a sensual allure and flaunt your bare shoulders with its exquisite cut. You can rest easy on the accessorizing for this item, and let the maxi do all the work for you.
Innovation is the key to success, and we are always trying to incorporate new technology in new fabrics. The first of many dresses here in VGY, we have successfully created a neoprene bonded fabric by marrying neoprene with a smooth inner dark gold colored fabric - this was inspired by the widespread use of gold during the lunar new year. Laser-cutting is also another area of design specification that we are venturing into for this year, and little did you know, this was actually inspired by the traditional Chinese New Year cuttings!
I hope this has been a good takeaway to allow YOU to determine what to wear on those 4 days! All these designs have been stocked in the boutique, so if you are unsure of the sizing, do pop on by and our friendly sales angels will definitely assist with your requirements. With that said, the VGY team is always receptive to feedback on our merchandize and service, so do drop us your inquiries via emails and we will be delighted to assist.
