Trendy Tuesday and more

Noël Caleb is one brand that is constantly evolving.

We have regularly launched unique programmes for our fans and our customers and keeping up with this tradition, we recently launched a new initiative called Trendy Tuesday.

Trendy Tuesday is a movement that aims to bring interesting, fashionable people together, yes you guessed it right, every Tuesday 🙂

We have lined up a series of exciting activities for you all as part of Trendy Tuesday. But before we reveal that, check out what we have been up to so far 🙂

For our first Trendy Tuesday event, our team met up with Singapore’s coolest runway club at Raffles Junior College.

Raffles Runway is a student run fashion programme. Around 60 students created their own designs which were recently shown at their fashion show at SCAPE on 11 May.

Noël Caleb mentored the club by providing guidance in terms of styling, catwalk training, choreography, etc. Noël Caleb also had a segment at this fashion show. Here’s a short video:

In another Trendy Tuesday activity, we organized an accessories making workshop in collaboration with Eskpade, an upcoming local accessories label.

It was an intimate session where Kristine, the founder of Eskpade, guided the participants through the process of creating an embroidered accessory.

It was tough but fun 🙂

We also organized a Meet-The-Designers session at The Co on 7 May where students, bloggers, fans and customers got an opportunity to meet and interact with designer-founders of three local labels.

All the designers were very open and honest about their experiences of starting and running fashion labels.

They also gave a ton of sensible and practical advice to aspiring entrepreneurs.

Samuel Woo: Finalist Four – Noël Caleb Photography Contest 2012

Last but definitely not the least, we present to you, Samuel Woo, the fourth finalist of the Noël Caleb Photography Contest 2012.

Samuel is a graduate of NTU’s School of Art, Design and Media, having completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and Digital Media with Honors. He brings with him several years of experience working as a Graphic Designer, Photographer and Art Director on various individual and corporate projects.

He has also exhibited his photographs and performance art pieces at several prestigious shows over the years.

As Samuel says in his own words – “My work revolves around questioning the values of a fixed identity in the (post) postmodern world today, from defining self through self, defining self through the other and defining self through the environment.”

Samuel uses and hybridizes a variety of media – photography, painting, performance art, etc, not only to challenge himself technically but also to mirror the blurring of boundaries between artistic practices today, following an innate impulse to create novel experiences in understanding art.

You can check out Samuel’s website to see more of his cutting-edge work.

Well, now that you have met all four finalists, you must be really curious to see their editorial fashion spreads for our latest collection ‘Garden of Eden’.

You only have to wait a few more hours 🙂

Tomorrow, we will reveal their artistic creations for Noël Caleb on our Facebook page.

You will have one week to vote for your favorite photographer. Remember, your votes will have 60% weightage in the final choice of the winner so each vote will be really important for our finalists.

The winner of the Noël Caleb Photography Contest 2012 will get an opportunity to showcase their talent on a global scale by creating an editorial fashion spread for Noël Caleb in our next campaign.

But all that comes later.

Right now, we are super excited about tomorrow 🙂

See you on our Facebook page!
