The floral creations will be displayed at the festival from 6th to 11th October.

The finale runway show for SJF16 will be held on 15th October featuring Singapore’s most celebrated designer, THOMAS WEE, who will be creating an exclusive couture collection of his signature strong and structured style for SJF to be presented with powerful jewel statement pieces.

During the exclusive media preview of Singapore JewelFest 2016 which was held at Action Hair Boutique, Paragon, I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of some stunning jewellery that was on display.

The festival will kick off with a private curtain-raiser on Thursday, 6th October with an unprecedented showcase of BALMAIN HAIR COUTURE styled with rare gems and jewels by Singapore’s renowned coiffeur, Vinn Wong of Action Hair Salon.
