Things I loved at MAAD {07.10.11}

This post is kind of overdue... MAAD {standing for Market of Artists And Designers} took place last Friday. This time I was not selling, but I managed to drop by and was very pleased to {re}discover some great local designers. 

#1 Veira

"Veira is all about quirky statement bags that are as relevant today as they will be tomorrow. The look is contemporary, yet classic; functional, yet fashionable; minimalist, yet intricate. Our label is built upon a mixture of modern female flair, inspired by vintage silhouettes and complemented by an array of innovative detailing." {source}

I am in love with the envelop clutch above...

"L'Ile aux Ashby loves playing with shapes and forms, mixing the hard with the soft, the old with the new. Artfully handcrafted the designs are edgy yet stylish, and speak to different personalities and moods." {source}

 I need some wooden accessories... I think I know where to shop them now.

#3 UNCVRD

"un-covered (UNCVRD) is a brand that exemplifies modern street wear with bold lines and charming confidence in its collection of stylish wearables. Unpretentious and original, UNCVRD holds firm onto its concept of uncovering new styles and ideas, transforming them into assertive looks teased with versatility and that essential dash of fun." {source}

"I live and work in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Most of the time, i am copywriting or graphic designing, but when work is scarce, or inspiration wriggles, i make things!
With clay, I explore with my fingers and bow down to the kiln gods hoping for happy surprises at each firing. Everything here is individually beautiful to me... I strive to make objects which reflect strength, beauty, simplicity, whimsy." {source}


Totally love the blue print at the top! {here}

I love #2 L'Ile aux Ashby, those wooded necklaces are really hot, and very creative. Wish I lived in Singapore would have loved to go to MAAD, it looks very interesting and ispiring.

Gosh, look at that wooden necklace.

So, I've never really got a chance to know that Singapore has plenty of talented artists (and I lived next door for years!)

It's great to find out about all these amazing work of art!
