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.

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

Noël Caleb Model Search 2013

Hello fellow Noël Caleb fans!

Check out what we were up to last week.

We conducted our first model audition for the year on 19 Feb at the fabulous The Co.

The selected models will walk the runway for our upcoming fashion show on 23 March at the Zouk.

They will also be put on a short list to be our campaign model for our upcoming collection, launching in March.

It was a fun filled evening with the audition consisting of three parts – a photo shoot, a video shoot of the runway walk (which was really challenging as the models had to walk down a spiral staircase in heels!) and a 30 second video introduction.

All the models did really well and it was unfortunate that we could choose only 16 from amongst them.

So without much further ado, here are the 16 lucky ladies 🙂

Noël Caleb Apprentice Programme 2012

The Noël Caleb Apprentice Programme 2012 was a superb success and this is all thanks to our immensely talented apprentices:

Pei Ying, Janissa, Vanessa, Syanel and Chermaine.

Noël Caleb Apprentice Dinner

Our fabulous apprentices picked up various aspects of working with a fashion label including behind-the-scenes work like sourcing, designing and production very quickly.

They also learnt about styling, visual merchandising and retail and got to practice it at the Noël Caleb counter in the amazing departmental store ISETAN.

Our apprentices also exhibited amazing potential while organizing a fashion show at our Christmas Party, which was presented by Noël Caleb fans.

Did you miss it?

Fret not. We have created a short video for you where you can catch all the highlights and see our apprentices in action 🙂

Doesn’t it look fabulous?

We all had a wonderful time.  We would like to thank all Noël Caleb fans who helped us present this gorgeous event.

Now you can understand why we had a tough time choosing the Best Apprentice.  All of them were exceptional!

Unfortunately, there can be only one winner. Or in our case, two 🙂

Yes, there is a tie. The Noël Caleb Best Apprentices 2012 are:

Lin Pei Ying

She is not only great at design but did a phenomenal job serving customers during her retail stint as well.

Chermaine Lee

Despite being a Communications and New Media student at NUS, Chermaine’s passion for fashion and responsive nature were absolutely inspirational.

We are confident that all our apprentices – Pei YingJanissaVanessaSyanel and Chermaine – have a brilliant future ahead of them.

We wish them all the very best in their journey:)

Noël Caleb Apprentice Class Commences

We commenced the first Noël Caleb class on this Wednesday 7 Nov 2012. It ended on a really high note with all the apprentices looking forward to the next lesson. If you’ve missed it, here’re some “behind-the-scene” snapshots for you.

We started off the lesson by having the apprentices share with each other on their sense of style as well as the insecurities that they have when styling themselves, so as to be able to get a better idea of each and everyone’s dressing.

We went on to talk about the various body types and the styling tips for different body types that will  complement perfectly the many individuals.

After getting to know more about styling, the apprentices gave it a go in  styling each other in the various Noël Caleb collections. It was filled with laughter and giggles in the room as they attempted to style one another, no doubt that they had fun putting their knowledge into use.

Witness the actions below and see how the apprentices transformed themselves through putting on Noël Caleb pieces.
