New fashion exhibit shows how women's roles changed in Singapore and China

There are many factors affecting how women dress themselves. Be it a new job or a lifestyle change, women’s clothing continues to accurately represent a country’s political, social and economic advancements. And according to archival documents, women experienced the most significant changes from the late 1880s to the 1970s – at least in Singapore and China.


A new exhibit at the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall is putting the spotlight on women and their key contributions to society by way of fashion and more. Titled Modern Women of the Republic: Fashion and Change in China and Singapore, it opens on Saturday (Jun 12) and runs until Dec 12. “Fashion, besides being a form of self-expression, is often a reflection of the times. This is why we chose fashion as a medium to tap into broader conversations to discuss women's multi-faceted and ever-changing roles across history,” explained Tan Yan Ni, an assistant curator at Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall. and we hope to spark off more discussions among Singaporeans about what constitutes a modern woman today,” Tan added. Here's what you can expect from the three-part showcase.
