Say hello to the rarest ABSOLUT VODKA bottles in the world. These 3 bottles come in a production of only 20. Talk about uber-exclusivity.While the name ABSOLUT VODKA would be familiar with most people, not many have seen the vast range of its beautifully designed and rare bottles which the brand has collaborated and commissioned countless artists to create since 1986. I was naturally excited when I heard about the ABSOLUT CANVAS exhibition at the National Museum of Singapore (23 Aug – 2 Sep 2013) where I can feast my eyes on how the biggest names in fashion and design have re-interpreted ABSOLUT’s signature vodka bottle in their own creativity. Some of these bottles are so rare – only as little as 3 pieces were produced and can command up to a street value of S$15,000 for a bottle. Interested to know which bottle that is? Read on ;)

It showcases more than 80 artifacts comprising wedding dresses, bridegroom attires and accessories dating from the 1800s to the early 2000s. Categorised into eight thematic sections, it depicts how wedding dress traditions have developed over time.

Take inspiration from elaborate wedding gowns designed by Charles Frederick Worth, Vera Wang, Vivienne Westwood, Christian Lacroix and John Galliano. On display are also wedding gowns worn by celebrities such as Dita von Teese and Gwen Stefanie. Wedding bells ringing, anyone?


The Wedding Dress: 200 Years of Wedding Fashion will be open from 8 August until 31 October 2012, 10:00AM – 6:00PM daily at the National Museum of Singapore. Admission is S$11.
Guided Tours:

Limited to 15 participants per session, on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Wedding Dress Exhibition

Extreme left: This wedding dress was worn by Eliza Larken for her marriage to William Monson at St. Giles in the Fields Church, London, on 8 May 1828.  In choosing white for her wedding dress Eliza was making a fashionable choice. Her dress was made with a pair of detachable long sleeves which fit over the short puff sleeves. These would have been worn for the wedding and made the dress suitable for day wear. Worn without the long sleeves, it was transformed into evening wear.
Middle: 
Date of Manufacture: 1830. White muslin was popular for wedding dresses in the first half of the 19th century. All the waistlines look so tiny….

The Wedding Dress Exhibition

White satin and Honiton lace wedding dress
Date of manufacture: 1865
The bride’s dress was a focal point just as it is today. By 1800 it had become usual for her to wear white or cream as popularised by Queen Victoria. The colour as it implied purity, cleanliness and social refinement. The wide skirt of dress would have been supported underneath by a cage crinoline.This dress was worn by Eliza Penelope Bright for her marriage to Joseph Bright at St James’s, Piccadilly on 16th February 1865. Wedding dresses are one of the rare types of garment for which the name of the wearer and the date of her marriage are often recorded.

The Wedding Dress

1800s Wedding Veil. I would wear that – now!

The Wedding Dress

Wedding dress consisting of bodice, train and skirt of embroidered satin and velvet, designed by Charles Frederick Worth made in Paris, 1879-1880. Worn by Clara Mathews for her marriage at St George’s Hanover Square on 19th February 1880 to Colonel Hugh Stafford. She was the daughter of Isaac Merritt Singer, the sewing machine pioneer.

The Wedding Dress

The bride who wore this dress was Lucretia Crouch, who married Benjamin Seebohm at the Friend’s Meeting House in Clevedon, 10 September 1874.

Oh la la! The groom’s favourite part of the wedding *wink*

The Wedding Dress

U.gotta.be.kidding.me…I.have.to.be.dead.6.months.to.fit.into.this.tiny.thing.
Fashion and technological innovation changed the shape of late ninteenth-century corsets. As the bustle replaced the crinoline and bodices contoured the figure, corsets became longer to achieve the desired hourglass silhouette. They encased the abdomen and enveloped the hips, and the amount of whalebone also increased to give a smoother outline and help prevent wrinkling of the fabric. This corset from the 1880s is composed of twelve separate shaped pieces and forty whalebone strips.

The Wedding Dress Exhibition

So very Jane Austen! I would wear that too!

Date of manufacture: 1845

The Wedding Dress

Top Left: Miniature bridesmaid’s fan gilded and lithographed with romantic 18th-century scene of shepherdess and suitor, possibly Great Britain, late 19th century.Bottom Left: This delicate orange blossom wedding wreath is a rare survival. Imitation blossom was normally made from wax, paper, or cloth, but this is made entirely from feathers and silk ribbons on fine wire. It is associated with the 1854 marriage of Elizabeth Wroughton Richards to Edward Nugée.
Top Right: Pair of white leather gloves with cream satin and lace scalloped cuffsAssociated with a wedding in 1833, accompanied by a handwritten note “The gloves I went to church in to be married March 21st 1833”
Bottom Right: Wedding favours made of wax, cloth, paper, wire and cream silk satin ribbon in 1889. Wedding favours were small mementos  handed out to guests at the wedding.

The Wedding Dress

Men’s wedding waistcoats from the 1800s. Floral motifs were popular for weddings, as forget-me-nots symbolise true love and lily of the valley represents purity of heart and happiness.

The Wedding Dress

Left: Flat soled ‘slipper’ shoes were made with minimal variation for over 50 years. They were widely worn between 1800 and 1850, after which time they gradually fell out of fashion. They were not made to stand up to much wear, with their delicate fabric and thin leather soles.Right: Shoes with modest heels first came into fashion at the end of the 1850s, after nearly 50 years of low-heeled and flat-soled footwear. During the 1880s, the heel shape became more waisted, echoing the 18th century ‘louis’ heel.

The Wedding Dress

Headdress

The Wedding Dress

The highlight of the exhibition, this stunning silk satin wedding dress has an almost three-metre long train that took 30 women six weeks to complete. The dress was worth 50 pounds in the 1930s, but today it would be worth 15,000 pounds (about S$30,000).

The Wedding Dress

Left: Dashing Russian uniforms and film costumes inspired this 1968 maxi-length winter wedding coatdress. Its lean lines break with traditional tiny-waisted, full-skirted styles. The fur-trimmed hood is detachable, and elaborate silver and cream frogging and trimming combine with the floral cloque to create an opulent, up-to-the-minute wedding outfit.

The Wedding Dress

Wedding Coat with hand-painted floral details

The Wedding Dress

“This looks my grandmother’s curtains.”
Well, you are right! During World War II when fabric was rationed, resourceful brides turned materials such as upholstery or curtains for their wedding dresses. Well, that’s better than having a micro-mini wedding dress back in the traditional, conservative era.

The Wedding Dress

This Vera gown was worn with Havianas! Cool.

The Wedding Dress

Gwen Stefani wore this custom-made pink and white silk faille wedding dress by John Galliano for Dior when she married Gavin Rossdale on 14 September 2002 at St. Paul’s Church in London.

The Wedding Dress

Burlesque queen Dita von Teese wore a royal purple silk taffeta gown by Vivienne Westwood and a tri-corned hat designed by Stephen Jones and matching Mr. Pearl corset for her wedding nuptials to shock rocker Marilyn Manson on 3 December 2005 at Helnwein’s Irish castle. The dinner was as goth as one could imagine.

The Wedding Dress

Elaborate Peranakan (Straits Chinese) wedding costume

The Wedding Dress

Declarations of love from the master. I think I would tear if my loved one recited that to me. I do, I do, I do!

The Wedding Dress

Sustainable love is indeed friendship set to music – both in harmony and everything said is music to the ears. Love with fireworks are great, but often burn out fast too. I used wish for love at first sight, but over the years I have realised it’s more like lust at first sight! Maybe I am turning pessismistic…
Now, I think peaceful, lasting love is the best, where we can hold hands and leisurely walk in the park in 40 years’ time, and I will still be the cutest creature on earth to him. To me, that’s love ❤

Night Festival 2012: A Nocturnal Extravaganza worth Staying Up For

Night Festival & Night Lights 2012

Night Festival & Night Lights 2012

A nocturnal extravaganza of light art, spectacular aerial performances, music and dance is set to wow visitors at the 5th edition of the Night Festival. The events will take place on the public green spaces of the Singapore Management University, National Museum of Singapore (NMS), Singapore Art Museum (SAM), SAM at 8Q, School of the Arts (SOTA) and The Substation. All museums including The Peranakan Museum and The Philatelic Museum will open till 2am as part of the festival and what’s even better – all visitors can enjoy complimentary late night admission– sounds like an adventure!

Held over two weekends on 24-25 August and 31 August – 1 September, Night Festival 2012 showcases 74 acts, out of which 66 are local. The most prominent local artwork would be that of Brian Gothong Tan’s light projection onto the façade of the National Museum of Singapore. He aims to bring Singapore’s historical buildings to life – through his experimental film “WE THE PEOPLE”. Also look out for acrobats from Another highlight Circus Swingapore, the only school here that teaches Circus Arts (I didn’t know we had that!).

The most exciting part for me would be Night Lights, an outdoor showcase of spectacular light installations at Singapore Art Museum , SAM at 8Q and School of the Arts. These artworks were first presented at Fête des Lumières in Lyon, France which hosts the world’s grandest and oldest light art festival in the world. It’s a highly-coveted festival for light artists to exhibit at, so we can expect world-class standards here.

I was there both days, and there was so much to see I understood why the festival went on till 2am. Visitors sat on the grass, transfixed by the light projections on SAM and NMS, or simply merry little figures come alive on the steps of SOTA. A pity about the hot weather, else I would have thought I was on the streets of Lyon watching a beautiful art performance.

For the first time, Armenian Street will be closed on the second festival weekend (31 August – 1 September 2012), from 8pm to 2am due to planned programmes for the public along the street. I’ll certainly be back next weekend to catch this, and Argentinian group Fuerzabruta’s aerial spectacular. And loading up on the coffee to last me thought the night.

Night Festival 2012
Fri & Sat, 24 & 25 Aug and 31 Aug & 1 Sep | 7:30pm – 2am

High energy LED lion shuffling to current dance moves. It was fascinating to watch, yet a part of me thought they were a bit too cute, and lost the original majestic nature of the Chinese lions. Would you want a shuffling lion as an auspicious creature and watch over your fortunes? I wonder.

Mimoїd II by Stéphane Bève, Milosh Luczynski & Philippe Rizzotti
Singapore Art Museum
Mimoїd II presents a constantly evolving architecture of a building where each transformation is based on the building’s history and structure. The artwork goes beyond history, into the anticipation of paradise and the unknown. The word “mimoid” comes from Stanislas Lem’s book, Solaris. The Mimoids, which are wave formations of hundreds of thousands of pixels, have a particular fondness for all human artifacts and they imitate and ‘give variations on the theme of a given object’.Monument AIR (Mimoїd) was first presented at Fête des Lumières 2010 in Lyon, France

Distorted Forest by Stéphane Blanquet
Queen Courtyard, Level 1, SAM
This installation Distorted Forest plays with the use of lights and shadows. Blanquet readapts the Chinese technique of shadow play and creates a forest populated with six larger-than-life-size half-plant, half-insect elements in the Queen Courtyard of the Singapore Art Museum. With a specially designed light system, the shadows of the elements will be projected on the walls to create a stormy and haunted forest.

30 giant pairs of quirky animal eyes peer out from the corridors of SAM at 8Q, illuminating the night sky. Modelled after the eyes of birds, fishes and reptiles, the eyeballs seem to be looking back at us even as we regard them, acting as colourful metaphors that cast a questioning gaze about our secure urban environment. WOKmedia is an art and design collective consisting of Julie Mathias and Wolfgang Kaeppner.
