B&M First Online Buying Trip

This is the first time we brought our customer team with us on a buying trip via What's App. It was exciting to show them photos of samples and receive instant feedback about colours, styling, material etc - all done online. A big thank you to all who participated in this trial run to make it a successful and memorable one for us. Hope you enjoy the merchandise we bought back for you!

Spring Styling Workshop

Here are the highlights from the successful “LIVE” styling workshop we hosted at Tanjong Pagar Centre last Wednesday, 18th April at the B2 Chillout Space. At the workshop, we shared our B&M style ideas, SS2018 fashion trends and goodie bags - the best moment of the workshop for most of us must have been the lovely models parading our latest Spring 2018 collection.

PS: We know that we’re serving a tribe of smart, busy and hardworking women, sometimes it’s hard to squeeze time out from work and/or family to attend our styling workshops. So if you’d like to invite us to your office to share our styling ideas, do email or PM us, and we’ll try to work something out.

What attendees are saying about the workshop:

“The workshop was engaging, light-hearted, casual and happy!”

“Learnt a new wardrobe detox tip. Thank you”

“Picked up interesting ideas from SS2018 fashion trends”

Elsie is a fashion entrepreneur who resides in Singapore. She’s been in the fashion business for more than 2 decades, in a variety of roles as a mass-market merchandiser, a luxury brand manager, a fashion buyer, before fulfilling her life-long dream of running her own fashion business. She passionately believes that style is a skill that can be honed and cultivated. To that end, she teaches women how to create and curate a stylish-authentic wardrobe that gives them the confidence to shine and show up as THE BEST VERSION of themselves everyday.

We’re OPEN. Finally.

Hello December, and hello to our online friends. Apologies for neglecting our website recently – it’s been eons since we posted anything substantial on our blog, but if you’ve been following our daily updates on Instagram and Facebook, you’ll know that we’ve been incredibly busy closing and opening shops this last few months. In fact, at some point this year, we were so overwhelmed by the challenges of the business, we seriously contemplated calling it a day and sailing off into the sunset for an extended siesta and some fancy margaritas.

Instead, after much soul searching, discussions with our team, friends and families, we decided to forge ahead and use the opportunity to re-look at our business, everything from the inside out. Questions like “Why do we run our business this way?”, “Why did we buy this?”, “Why didn’t we buy that?”, “Why pick the more expensive options?”, “Why not just sell online?” (that will cut overheads substantially!) Well, before we could forge forward with determination and gusto and motivate our team, we needed to convince ourselves that this is really what we wanted to do. That the dream is as real as the people going for it.

Once our hearts were settled and united, it was all hands-on deck, full steam ahead! We had no Plan B. It was all or nothing at all for us. I mean, life is short, why bother to do things in half measures? Anyways, energy is contagious. As we handed over our keys for our Income at Raffles shop, I was holding back tears and the landlord(!?) consoled me, saying this is not the end. Thank you! We went through an insane season of renovations and if we had a lesser team, we would have fallen flat on our faces – probably more than once or twice! Even our suppliers thought we were crazy to push through new production at such volume and speed and so close to year end!

We are Butterflies & Marigolds, we will bloom where we’re planted and fly with brave wings.

Blessed Christmas to all!

Style Capsule Workshop at Marina Bay Link Mall

Last Thursday, we were pleased to have been one of the fashion boutiques invited to contribute some of our pieces for MBLM’s first ever Style Capsule Workshop. They invited style influencer Savina Chai to pick suitable items from shops within the mall and show customers how to put them together to create stylish outfits. Of course, we wrangled for free tickets to attend the workshop (we’re gluttons for style tips – so that we can pass them onto you!! File that under job hazard). MBLM’s management were kind enough to extend their invitation for our VIPS to attend the event without the official minimum spending required!

So, here’s some post event coverage, including door gifts, refreshments from Cedele! We had a fun time catching up with everyone, thank you MBLM for organising everything, we’re sure there was lots to do behind the scenes to have a successful event!
