Ah Keow Swing Dress In Diamond Modern Batik
Diamond Modern Batik print was actually sold out last year and we managed to make a few extra pieces this time round. This is the 2nd gen of Ah Keow Swing Dress. We have replaced the side zipper and snap buttons with a concealed back zipper. As you probably would've known, this style of dress is named after my own grandmother. Growing up, I've seen many pictures of her in cheongsam and that's how I was first introduced to this article of clothing with so much culture and history behind it.
We've decided to incorporate modern batik print into it this time round to add a South East Asian flavour to these vintage inspired pieces.
Ah Keow v 2.0 has a circle skirt like the first and comes with TWO hidden pockets this time round (more space for those red packets (ang paos or red enveloped with cold hard cash inside given by married women and men to younger, unmarried family members, relatives and friends' babies)!
Do note that this dress was photographed with 50s style tulle slip to show the fullness of the skirt and does not come with the tulle slip.
