Finally met up with Atsuko after some email exchanges, prior to her visit. Atsuko is an experienced bag designer based in Tokyo.
I was really excited about the meet up and it was such a wonderful Saturday (8 October) afternoon! All thanks to Roomservice Fashion Guidebook (credits to Parco for getting all of us listed) that kinda connected us.

I know I talk a lot about not having ‘real’ colleagues to interact with on a day-to-day basis. However, I am so happy to be able to connect with great people from all over the place! We had so much fun exchanging knowledge, information about Tokyo/Singapore, the fashion industry, designs etc etc.
Attracted by this pretty little cupcake shop along Haji Lane while we were browsing through the shops.
This is a last minute photo taken just before we said goodbyes 😦
Thank you for contacting me and for all your useful pointers. You are always welcome back to Singapore, Atsuko-san!
