Recently I got to visit Singapore again to support a friend in her dance store business, also to meet a few dance store owners myself. What I love most about Singapore is that everything you are looking for is somewhere within that small city of theirs. If you read my part one on the Fabric shopping guide, then you will enjoy these 2 new places I found
- Mustafa Center
During my recent stay, I got to stay at just a 5 minute walk place near the Mustafa Centre. I never realised that the place was so near to my hostel and there were plenty of fabric, Fabric mostly from Japan and Taiwan, and those are my 2 most favourite places to shop for fabric in. They have fabric from Valentino as well as organic cotton, I loved this part of Mustafa centre. 1/4 of the whole ground floor was just filled with all kinds of fabric from all over the world.
2. Textile Center
I stumbled upon textile centre as I was walking towards Arab street. I love Arab street for one reason, and that is because their fabrics are as cheap as they are BEAUTIFUL! Their prices range even from 2SGdollar per yard and thats pretty cheap for the quality of their fabrics. They never disappoint and they are even willing to bargain.
As for the textile centre which is just a few mins walk from Arab, is a building with plenty of options for trimmings and extra bags of organza and small things you stick on costumes and designs. Its the best place to shop for those kinds of things like fabric glue, ribbons and patches. I loved it there, and it was also very very cheap, I spent only 50 SGdollar for a whole bag of trimmings and patches and they sold it by many big packs so I had plenty to take home.
ENJOY FABRIC SHOPPING! I hope that will add to your list of places to visit in Singapore.
