Conceptualised by award-winning architecture firm WOHA Architects, Design Orchard opened earlier this year as a multi-sensorial shopping experience and showcase for home-grown Singapore labels, incorporating a mall with a café and a rooftop events space within the two-and-a-half storeys. Local retail guru Naiise curates the 9,000 sq ft level-one mall featuring world-class designs proudly made in Singapore: fragrance and candle brand Artisan of Sense; womenswear label Qlothè; homeware brand Onlewo; fashion label Ginlee Studio; accessories brand Gnome & Bow; and furniture manufacturer SoftRock Living. The project includes second floor co-working spaces operated by the Textile and Fashion Federation, designed to encourage collaboration and networking opportunities with local industry players – and turn passions into possibilities. §
