Dear Friend Of ABARA,

Ms Yuki Yang, who is ABARA founder and creative director, hosted media friends and influencers, in celebrating the introduction of ABARA into Singapore’s luxury and fashion retail landscape.

I’m deeply honoured to have the leaders of Singapore’s fashion media here today at this special preview to witness the opening of ABARA’s first store. ABARA is more than just Singapore’s luxury leather label; We are witnessing a fashion landmark offering bespoke handbags that are designed and made in Singapore. We would like to express my deep gratitude to all of you for supporting ABARA’s endeavour of launching an international-quality luxury label that will put Singapore on the fashion world map.” – Ms Yuki Yang, ABARA Founder and Creative Director  

It was an evening of fun and discovery as guests learnt about ABARA’s Summer 2023 Collection “Afterglow.” Ms Yuki Yang bonded with media friends and influencers to share more about ABARA’s founding and brand values of authenticity, personal style and environmental preservation as she gave them a tour of the ABARA boutique and its special features.
