On Monday 17 March 2014 at 7pm at the Substation, 45 Armenian St, City Hall, Singapore, I will be singing with a small group of adults as part of choir. The performance also includes songs by local children, excellent soloists and a ukelele group.
All in aid of the African Children's Choir, which is a charity empowering impoverished families in Uganda. It will be a great show to celebrate the good work that they do, with songs like Let It Go from Frozen, Roar by Katy Perry and Don't You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia.

The concepts in their separate entities, i.e. clothing rental from stores, marketplaces and clothes sharing as social events, are not new.
However, peer to peer clothing rental is!
That is exactly what Rentez-Vous is all about and it has become very fashionable indeed in Paris and London no less.
The latest welcome addition to an increasing collaborative consumption movement, I hope that this will serve to demonstrate to high street and designer brands that rental and repair services are in demand and a rejig of the classic 'walk-into-a-shop-and-get-something-cheap-and-new-in-exchange-for-cash' model is fast becoming fatigued.
So, in a sexy voice (because sustainable fashion is super sexy), I say "Vivez la mode, ne la possedez pas!"
