You may question is there history or culture behind Singapore’s iconic hawker centers?
Does it really matter?... Hawker centers/ food centers are a common sight in not just Singapore but around the world.
It is the delicious inexpensive hawker food served in open air, with plastic chairs & tables near hdb estates and transport hubs back in the earlier days that sparks much charm.
Moving forward, some amazing hawker food has evolved to be Michelin Star worthy too!
The outfits as worn by the hosts of Hawker Academy explores the possibility on how we could infuse the pop culture & our younger Singapore generation by creating this illustrated “ hawker centers “ theme repeated print textile and at the same time giving some visually striking outfits against the hawker centers setting.
Can you spot what are these hawker centers?
