A Mad Tea Party
Here, some pictures of a dessert bar I had put together last week for a friend, the lovely and super stylish Chin, also known as the tastemaker behind Asiatique, the gorgeous emporium of delightful covetables located in the heart of Dempsey. If you reside in Singapore or are planning a visit, but have yet to discover this absolute gem of a shop at 14A Dempsey Road (T: +65 64713146), you really must, soonest. Be warned: You may very well find yourself wringing hands over logistics to heft some beautifully designed and crafted armoire or bureau or compound cabinet or some other such decor statement-making like back home, freight charges be damned. Some of our most cherished pieces of furniture, collected over the years, were truffled from here, a sanctuary for the sanctuary.
The theme for the dessert bar? Lewis Carroll's mad tea party from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, of course. The occasion? A very special trunk show held at Asiatique showcasing their fabulous and exclusive lineup of independent jewellery and accessory brands, with all the designers in attendance mingling with guests and sharing about the inspiration behind and provenance of their sublime wares.
As you can imagine, I had an absolute ball coming up with the menu and being part of this wonderful event. Thank you, C!
