Last month, House of Sheens worked with two amazing students from Raffles College to conceptualise and capture our latest photoshoot. Aashna Rao and Shivangi Jalan are both Fashion Marketing students who remind us to be brilliant and bold no matter how young (or old) you are.

We took some time to talk to Aashna and Shivangi about their experience working with us, and find out more about what inspires them.

We hope their answers awaken every bit of your intrepid soul.

House of Sheens believes in collaborations and supporting other women led businesses. So on August 29th we teamed up with the fabulous ladies from Divas Closet and had a day of shopping for all our loyal customers. They had the chance to shop contemporary Indian wear along with our newly launched festive collection of bags. Our new range of festive bags were adorned with hand embroidered flowers in a delicate champagne color and sparkly beads, stones and pearls. (To view the whole collection, please have a look at our website!)

We had such an amazing time at the St. Regis Hotel which was the perfect venue to host our guests and showcase our new line of bags.  We cannot thank St. Regis Hotel enough for the exceptional service they gave to all our customers.  Thank you to all those who came down to support us, and see our new designs.  Our new festive #AvaClutches went beautifully alongside Divas Closet elegant creations and many clutches and dresses matched to make lovely outfits in time for the Diwali season.

We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did!   Here are a few snaps from the days event, and all the fun we had! See you next time for another House of Sheens and Divas Closet collaboration.

Morning set up!

I love my business. I love designing and I love each bag that is created in our little world of House of Sheens. Each bag is handmade and something about that makes me feel almost (laughing) like they are my babies. Fragile, unique and gorgeous to look at. (Similar to my kids?) One special day in the most beautiful setting of Base Residences in Hong Kong Street, my dear friend Karman Tse, founder of Wear oh Where shot a series of photos of me and quite plainly my babies.

Soft, luxurious and lustrous python skin enveloping the funky, quirky and fun box clutches shapes made for a colourful cluster of brilliant bags. My little babies shine against the monochromatic colours of Base Residences. Also, on a little side note, these service apartments are gorgeous! Perfect for a little in town staycation away from the kids, or for a visiting out of towner. In the heart of the CBD and in the middle of Hong Kong Street, we loved the photoshoot location.

Enjoy the photos of my little babies, and come and visit us next Tuesday from 10:00 am – 7 pm at the St. Regis Hotel in Singapore to view our entire range of these little gems. Otherwise, please visit our showroom at 115 Amoy Street, 4th floor.

Why do we love Singapore?


For such a small island, we have some of the best nightlife in Asia! You can go out 7 nights a week and always find something to do, whether its a buzzing, late night hawker centre, a cool café, or a classy bar, there is something for everyone.

One of our top picks for a fun night out is Lulu’s Lounge located at Pan Pacific Hotel, with their super chic and trendy deco, fantastic cocktails, jazz music and burlesque dancers, the moment you go through those curtains you feel you are in a “1960’s backstreet New York CLub”, as they describe it, and we definitely agree!  Our new range of #AvaClutches will be great to stand out from the crowd here, with our pretty new embellishments and jewels on to add some bling to your evening out!

Greenery and Architecture

Singapore is a small island with such greenery and beautiful architecture to see.  They don’t just build a park and put a few swings in it, no, they make a whole breathtaking display of wonderous visual beauty for you to see.  For example the amazing Gardens By The Bay, with domes, gardens, waterfalls and kids play areas, this is not your ordinary garden with flower displays.  The way it is built is a mastery of architecture and worth a few snaps for the album!

There is so much diversity and different cultures in sunny Singapore, you can eat to your hearts content, with so much to choose from!

On the weekends with the kiddos we go to local hawker centres, so we can all choose what we like; a Korean hot plate, Singaporean chicken rice, Thai tom yam soup and our favourite, a good indian curry and prata! Everyone is satisfied!  If its not the hawker center, then it has to be our favourite Lebanese (middle eastern) food at Kazbar.   For 8 years of searching for the best middle eastern food in Singapore, we can safely say this is the most authentic and mouth watering!  Their generous meat platters, mezzes and desserts are all delicious and you will come out full and content each time.  Visit Kazbar at 25 Church Street, Capital Square 3.  It is 5 mins walk from us at 115 Amoy Street, so pop in after your lunch for a coffee and shop our new #AvaClutches!
