Nicole Xavier, Singapore

I have just been to Nicole Xavier in China Town, always dangerous.  This tiny store packs a mighty punch as they cherry pick the fabrics they offer.  If you visit Singapore it’s well worth a visit as it’s in the Peoples Park Complex where the whole 2nd floor is dedicated to fabric.

This brocade would make a stunning skirt like the Valentino dress in my previous post or a coat.

This is a matt laser cutout fabric that looks great with a satin underlay.

I have used this fabric before and it handles beautifully but needs careful pressing.

Here’s the evening dress I made last year using the same fabric in a different design.

I also managed to get some silk/cotton mix perfect for lining for only S$12 (£6.50).
