I was recently invited to be part of the Robe Raiders campaign, in which I styled two outfits. For those of you unfamiliar with Robe Raiders, it is the brainchild of three women - Resham Melwani, Sarah Tan and Claudia Sondakh. Having all worked in the fashion industry for several years and made the contacts with some of the most privileged women in Singapore, they help you raid the coveted wardrobes of other successful women. The result is a well-curated selection of designer wear, bags and shoes, all at amazingly low prices (way below that of retail). For eg. A pair of Charlotte Olympia pumps can be just be pocketed at the price of $250, while Claudia's recent treasure is a full fur leopard print coat from Alexander McQueen, going at $10,000 but with an original price tag more than 5x higher!

Robe Raiders also gives back by donating a portion of all sales to a charity of choice at each popup event. So what a good way to shop by digging for treasure at hugely discounted prices, supporting the fashion ecosystem and contributing towards charity efforts!
You can see the full campaign I did with the 6 other fashion bloggers here at Robe Raiders' homepage. And keep a lookout for an in-depth interview that I did with the Robe Raiders girls coming onto my blog soon!


I would love to see what you say!
