World 109, Exploration A

Adear represents the first Fashion Collection of a newly opened Singaporean repair salon in World 109 that wishes to be your cool and savvy friend-next-door, offering one-stop services ranging from the rebirth of pieces one dearly values, to dainty fashion remakes. Expect adventurous takes in modernising traditional fashion by infusing Southeast Asian inspirations with Western silhouettes. While fashion has the power to set tones and influence, we utilise dressing as our brand voice, to come together as a close-knit community with an interest of giving your old garments a fresh one-of-a-kind look.

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.

Please share any such examples using this form. Thank you!
