This exhibition as part of Artwalk 2022 will showcase how the Chetti Melakans employed dress as a signifier of their culture whilst simultaneously differentiating themselves from the “Nyonyas” or “Babas” (the Peranakan Chinese). The exhibition will also look at how contemporary Singaporean labels utilise techniques and textiles to preserve and celebrate Peranakan culture.
