Our favourite fair returns with new additions, fan favourites and a sweet three-day unlimited entry option.
We’ve been mindful with our shopping this year (or at least we try our best). But if there’s a shopping event worth splashing your cash on, this is it. Boutique Fairs Singapore is back in action with cool new deals up its sleeves – including a new three-day unlimited pass. That’s right, you can drop by as many times as you desire from 17 March to 19 March 2023 at just $5 (kids under 12 get free entry). This is what we’re excited for…
Why you need to check out Boutique Fairs Singapore: Spring Summer 2023 Edition
It’s touted as Singapore’s favourite independent shopping event for good reason. Expect seven rooms with over 250 locally based brands dedicated to women’s and men’s fashion, as well as accessories, home essentials, lifestyle picks, food and drinks, and kids’ toys, decor and fashion. As most of these brands are usually only available online, this is your chance to touch, feel and try everything IRL. You’ll also get to rub shoulders with the creative minds behind the brands, from emerging designers to industry veterans. Plus, you can even use your ticket to redeem a free snack or drink — different ones are up for grabs each day.
Are the kids (or dad) getting tired? Or do you need a place to rest your legs? Fuel up with healthy bites and beverages at the two dedicated cafe areas (complete with waterfront views) on level three or any of the seven rooms for a cuppa.
Shop new drops: Rock tropical, minimalist and timeless conscious fashion
Kickstart your shopping with threads made for the tropical climate at Beá Style Curators. The brand features Brazilian names such as Le Soleil D’été and Wasabi – all curated by designer and personal stylist, Ana Beatriz Cicarelli. Need fashion tips? Hop over to Biekaleidoscope. Former fashion designer turned wardrobe curator Biek Speijk spills the deets on decluttering and conscious shopping choices. She’ll also be showcasing her artworks, which include repurposed fashion magazines.
We love Yumumu, as it encapsulates the sensibilities of a modern woman with the juxtaposition of laid-back and formal wear. Meanwhile, Sans Faff is Singapore’s first waste-neutral fashion label in partnership with Nu Cycle. Expect classic silhouettes in black and white that transcend trends.
You’ve probably heard of Commune Wear, the handcrafted leather shoe brand that’s sustainable and oh-so-comfy. It’ll be featuring a range of women’s shoes with timeless designs at the fair. Complete your look with wearable gems from Studs+Stones. These interchangeable earring drops come in natural gemstones and genuine freshwater pearls in sterling silver, 14K gold fill, or gold.
Jazz up your abode with home decor and soft furnishings
A Boutique Fairs Singapore veteran, Louise Hill Design will showcase her colourful photography, illustrations and graphic design prints. Looking to upgrade your room? Sunday Bedding will set your sleeping habits right with silky smooth and cooling sheets, or other home textiles. Bestsellers include the bamboo sateen series but keep a look out for the exclusive launch – a first-ever collab with Liberty London fabric. Get your hands on an eyemask, cushion cover, and pillowcase pair.
While you’re at it, upgrade your bathroom with Escential The Body Tonic’s handcrafted bath and body products made with skin-loving botanicals. The new hair care range has solid shampoos, a leave-on conditioner and hair oil.

It doesn’t end there. Us adults can enjoy the thrill of the chase on a Boutiques-exclusive adventure with VegThisCity’s scavenger hunt through all seven rooms. The brand specialises in plant-based food walks and fun, lesser-known cultural experiences in Singapore. At Boutiques, they’ll be launching seats to their newest experience: design studio visits, where you can get up close and personal with designers in Singapore.
Don’t leave without getting snacks. Enjoy guilt-free desserts with Jammy’s Guiltless Pleasures. The store has keto brownies, keto and vegan ice cream, and Singapore’s first and only brownie-misu. If you’re looking for a natural and healthy supplement for children, hop over to MadeFrom. We hear that its All Natural Vitamin C Gummy for Kids is 100% natural, sourced from real food and has no added sugar.
Other brands in attendance include newbies such as jewellery label Thing In Itself and kids’ fashion label Evryday Studios. Also look out for new launches from Rye, Stolen, Darsala, Loving Sundays and ShiokFarm.
