More Lacroix ... Chin Chin and Colour Me Beautiful

The glamourlicious Christian Lacroix Costumier Exhibition, currently on at the National Musuem, is turning out to be one long, delicious affair to remember. 

In addition to the lavish and spectacular display of theatrical costumes and sketches by the feted French designer, a host of activities have sprung up based on the main attraction.

If you missed the first two parts of A French Affair – a series of four specially designed workshops held in conjunction with the Lacroix exhibition, there are another two planned for next month (May) featuring cocktails and colours respectively.

In A French Affair III: Exclusive Cocktails Inspired by Christian Lacroix, discover champagne cocktails reminiscent of the 1960s and 1970s Paris and London, inspired by the flamboyant dsigner famous for his catwalk excesses. 

This workshop includes inspirations from the centuries before, a period also of interest to Lacroix. While preparing the recipes, participants will perhaps understand more of his creative approach to design. 

This workshop is presented by Damian Sim, a “flavour impressionist” from Provocachic. The company specialises in flavour branding through cocktail recipe designs, which ask brands and individuals, “What would your story taste like?” Chin Chin, darlings!

Venue: The Salon, National Museum of Singapore
Date: 16 May, Saturday (3pm-5pm)
Price: S$35 (adult); S$28 (senior citizen, eg above 60)

In A French Affair IV: The Art of Make-Up, learn about the importance and subtleties of make-up for opera, ballet, and theatre and how it can work with the costume to complement and complete a stage character. How should the Prince in Swan Lake look? Or the Countess in Figaro? Enjoy a short guided tour of the Lacroix exhibition, followed by a discussion and demonstration of how to create a look for a character. 

This workshop is presented by Nicole Stinton and Larry Yeo. Nicole has more than 10 years of theatre experience in Australia and Singapore. In addition to being a highly regarded director, performer and lecturer, Nicole is the festival director in Singapore for Short+Sweet, the biggest short play festival in the world. Larry is an experienced makeup artist who started his career behind the make-up counter on the retail floor. Today, he is highly sought after for fashion and runway shoots and is passionate about making people look good.
