As most of us snoozed our alarms this morning, at least 700 eager fans (and some scalpers) were already lined up outside Apple Orchard Road since Tuesday in anticipation of the launch of the iPhone X.

In other fashion-related news: Singapore Fashion Week just came to a close this week, and rumour has it that this would be its last.

The most shocking, however, came with Christopher Bailey’s announcement that he would be leaving the British fashion juggernaut Burberry after 17 years at the helm.
