Pronounced “doe-jhen”, this fashion brand is a hot favourite amongst dapper male celebs, thanks to their effortlessly cool approach to menswear.
Major Hollywood names such as Chadwick Boseman, Zachary Levi and Mahershala Ali have all donned Dzojchen’s tailored menswear on the red carpet.
Recently, founder Chelsea Scott-Blackhall has also expanded her womenswear offerings, and it’s proving to be a huge hit.
Don’t believe us? Just look at the likes of Anne Hathaway, Ciara and Blake Lively wearing her razor-sharp tailoring on the red carpet.

2. Lynn Ban
Singapore-born and New York-based Lynn Ban is known for two things: her over-the-top fashions that she regularly posts on Instagram, and her line of unapologetic jewellery designs.
Peruse her social media channels, and you’ll see how her colourful sense of style translates into her maximalist designs.
Featuring everything from snaking serpents to diamond-encrusted skulls, nothing is ever too much for Lynn Ban’s line of bling.
And the celebs love it! Gisele Bündchen picked out a serpent ear cuff for this year’s Met Gala. More recently, Lynn’s work can also be seen on Beyoncé in her latest music video for The Lion King, “Spirit”.

3. State Property
Barely five years into the business, State Property is already proving that they are a national treasure.
This homegrown jewellery brand is the brainchild of husband-and-wife team Lim Ruiyun and Afzal Imran, and thanks to their combined background in jewellery and product design, State Property has become one of the buzziest accessory brands of late.
Their thoroughly-modern designs resemble miniature pieces of sculpture rather than being just jewellery, and this has attracted plenty of high-profile fans that include Olivia Munn, Nicole Kidman, Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga.

4. Charles & Keith
Charles & Keith needs no introduction – after all, they’re one of the most enduring footwear brands in the local market, with stores all across the island – but it seems like Singaporeans aren’t the only ones who are in love with the label’s trendy and affordable shoes.
Celebs like Priyanka Chopra and Gigi Hadid have all been spotted wearing Charles & Keith shoes, making it one of the more affordable celeb-endorsed fashion buys you could possibly find.

Recognised for their feminine designs, Aijek has plenty of fans with local women who want pieces that are statement enough to stand out without overdoing the drama.
Ranging from daywear separates to one-of-a-kind evening dresses, they’re stocked in several big-name stores such as Neiman Marcus, TANGS and ASOS, thereby bringing their gorgeous designs to a worldwide audience.
Case in point: A signature lace dress in yellow worn by Vanessa Hudgens.
