  • [New Feature] Dress designed by Andrew Gn that was worn by Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales¬†

The Museum has also added a new dress to its ongoing special exhibition Andrew Gn: Fashioning Singapore and the World, a retrospective tracing the fashion journey of one of Singapore’s most prolific designers. You can now see the new jewel-tone piece on display, a design worn most recently by Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales at the Trooping the Colour ceremony that took place on 17 June 2023.

This is the first time the Princess has chosen to wear a piece by a Singaporean designer Andrew Gn to a public event. The green ensemble pays homage to her new role as honorary Colonel of the Irish Guards, and the look was closely coordinated with renowned milliner Philip Treacy, who included an Andrew Gn embellishment on his custom, matching hat. 

Only two pieces in this custom design have been made: one for the Princess and the other for the House of Andrew Gn, now donated to ACM. 

Through five sections and over 100 representative works, Andrew Gn: Fashioning Singapore and the World explores Gn’s roots in Asia, cross-cultural expressions of Asian and Western art in his work, and celebrates the distinctive aesthetics, craftsmanship, and global impact of the House of Andrew Gn.

Admission & Ticketing Details

The exhibition runs from now until 17 September 2023 at ACM. During the weekend festival (15 to 16 July 2023) and on National Day (9 August 2023), Singaporeans and PRs can enjoy free entry to the special exhibition, while foreign visitors enjoy discounted entry at $10.

Recommended age: Ages 13 and above
