It targets women wanting to wear designs not found anywhere in the world.

Located at Orchard Central, this new womenswear, bags, accessories and kidswear store offers 8 specially curated designer labels from Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand and Latin America.

Noël Caleb Concept Store founder and creative director Eileen Yap notes that every design in the store is unique. “Styles mostly are one piece each size only in the world, now found only in this Noel Caleb concept store. So shoppers who buy pieces from the store will be glad to know that they are wearing genuinely creative, good workmanship pieces,” she said in an interview.

The store provides 10 brands which include Noel Caleb, La Boutique (couture price starts from S$400-S$1500), YUNA, JUDE, Rinrata, Twinkle Secret, CURIOSITY, Kolombiana, A. Python, littleoddforest.

Noël Caleb is the brainchild of Brand Strategist and Creative Director. Though the label is only 3 years old, Noël Caleb claims of receiving great reviews and has an active community of 7,000 fan followers. The label has partnered with superstore like Tangs, ISETAN and Takashimaya, bringing its colourful, creative fashion pieces to the confident, experimental women.

According to Eileen, the concept store is a personalised shopping place where you can get recommendations to what you need instantly. They also provide styling service to customers. The store encourages people to give them 30 minutes, pick 3 outfits and transform them.

“A first in Singapore, Noël Caleb offers personalized fitting services to its customers, before purchase, to a customer in Singapore. When a person selects what she likes from the online website www.noelcaleb.com, she can arrange for a fitting session, and try on the clothes, before she buys,” Eileen explained.

Aside from selling fashion pieces, Eileen said that they also host fashion parties in the store.
