GWOT 2016 Sabrina Goh
Sabrina Goh, 31, Founder and Fashion Designer, Elohim by Sabrina Goh

This LASALLE College of the Arts graduate worked for several brands before she founded her own, “ELOHIM BY SABRINAGOH” in 2009. The Singapore Young Designer Contest 2006 and 2007 Finalist has been invited to showcase at local and regional platforms, including the Audi Fashion Festival 2009 Blueprint Show, the ASEAN+3 Thai Textiles showcase in 2012, and Vogue Fashion’s Night Out in 2013. Last year, Sabrina was selected to take part in Fashion Futures, a strategic collaboration between Singapore Fashion Week and the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers in America. Through the programme, Sabrina was mentored by industry heavyweights like Diane von Furstenberg, Victoria Beckham and Thakoon. Today, this homegrown label is stocked in the US, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Korea.

“I am an introvert by nature…
But I realise that in today’s world, I have to interact in order to present my vision, my focus, and what I believe in.”

“Representing Singapore on a cross-cultural collaboration in Japan was amazing…
I was one of six selected designers from Southeast Asia to take part in Sakura Collection’s annual fashion event… This gave me the opportunity to work with renowned Japanese master photographer, Araki Nobuyoshi, for a fabulous feature in Madame Figaro Japan.”

“Fashion has become too transactional…
I aim to educate others about the stories and thoughts behind designers’ creations. Like what Marco Pierre White says, ‘a tree without roots is just a piece of wood’. Likewise, I believe that clothes without thought, is just a piece of cloth.”
