This one tips the scales

From Merlion gown creates waves June 5 2008 article in ST

(Karen Ng) thought the dress ‘looks awful’ and is ‘antiquated’, not representative at all ‘of Singapore as a modern, chic country’.

‘It could’ve been an avant garde, high-fashion look that’s very Galliano but this is far from couture.’

‘It looks like a normal pretty dress made out of scales with a fish-tail … It reminds me more of a beautiful fish or mermaid than the Merlion, as there is no resemblance.’

Nothing lion-ish which ever way you look at it. Fashion designers should stop using such ‘haute’ niche terms like ‘Galliano’ to describe fashion as if we would understand it. Miss Singapore Universe 2008 Shenise Wong’s marine-inspired flotsam looks like a recycled prop stolen off a school play rendition of the 1980’s Tom Hanks romance ‘Splash’.

Blisterin' Barnacles!
