Singapore Guide | Designers – Mash-Up
Made for: Guys and girls
Shaf, Daniela and Nat are MASH-UP. MASH-UP is an independent, offbeat street-wear label inspired by everything from ethnic heritage and pop culture to cinematography. The brainchild of LASALLE College of the Arts fashion graduates Daniela Monasterios Tan, Nathanael Ng and Shaf Amis’aabudin, MASH-UP is a manifestation of their common love for music, partying and fashion.
They produce clothing and accessories that incorporate recycled materials and do-it-yourself craft techniques such as embroidery and beading in neon colours, to yield products that are unusual and fun.
A mash-up is a fairly new term used in music and it perfectly describes what we are about. They are interested in bringing new meanings to old things, physically and metaphorically. For example, they use old garments that already have their own history and function, and by using “Do-It-Yourself” (DIY) craft techniques like embroidery, they are able to create a new use for them. Nothing is original, everything that exists and has been invented can be mashed up together to create a new story.
The hit to your wallet: From $39 for a necklace to $269 for a jacket.
Why we love MASH-UP:
The eye-catching prints and spunky colours look fresh in the light of the drab palette of depression-dressing so commonly seen on the streets today. The tongue-in-cheek details are also reminiscent of the eccentricity pioneered by the likes of Jeremy Scott and Henry Holland.
