SPeLL’s 1st Anniversary 2012 @ Changi Airport Terminal 3

Thanks to Andy from Sengkang Babies and Yvonne from Singapore Polytechnic [SP], I was invited to SPeLL‘s 1st Anniversary Celebration that was held at the Changi Airport Terminal 3.

In case you’re wondering what SPeLL is; SPeLL is Singapore Polytechnic‘s Entrepreneurship Living Laboratory [in its long form] but essentially, SPeLL is a state-of-the-art retail outlet managed by SP Business School and powered by Motorola Solutions. It is where Students from SP Business School can put their business acumen to use.

Anyways, Grace from Working With Grace was there too and she said something like its kinda odd that a dude like me is covering a fashion event. Kinda true but well, men also have got to have some fashion sense, if not, how are they going to attract ladies eh? hahas.

So after registering myself, I was seated at the very 1st row and I had a pretty awesome vantage point for nice photos.

The emcees/hosts for the day.

After which, the launch of Verve Avenue Fashion Collection was initiated and the Runway Models were their very own SP Student Entrepreneurs.

Here are just some of the outstanding photos that I took during the fashion show. Of course, they do have quite a number of outfits and if you wish to check out their full collection, you can either head down to their retail store at Changi Airport Terminal 3 or check out SPeLL‘s website [which is currently under construction].

Personally, I find the design of the men’s outfits to be pretty decent, clean-cut, and neat. Though I wouldn’t say that the men’s outfits are formal, but however, the men’s outfits are pretty suitable for occasions such as social gatherings, parties, and for dress down days. It gives people a simple but yet sophisticated kind of impression.

As for the ladies’ outfits, there are generally quite a number of styles to choose from. Some of the outfits can be rather “loud” while others are slightly more demure.

I was trying to utilise the artistic filter in my camera for this shot and I think it turned out pretty good.

We can all be young again when we dress up with the Verve Avenue Designer Collection Clothing.

Besides checking out the shop, I also had the opportunity to do a mini interview with one of the SP Student Entrepreneurs whom is from the SP School of Business. Currently pursuing his Diploma in Business Administration, Ian Tan shared with me his personal experience of how it was like to manage and operate a retail store.

From designing the clothing and sourcing for suppliers to managing the inventory and budgeting of the retail store, every Student Entrepreneurs are given the exposure and experience to operate the retail store. Ian also shared that this practical hands-on approach has given them a sound solid foundation of business principles and has also contributed to their personal development and growth.

So, if you’re at the Singapore Changi Airport this weekend, do check out SPeLL at Terminal 3 and pamper yourself with their latest Verve Avenue Designer Collection!
