Anyone knows where should I head to? I have only been on to Orchard Road but looks at those usual mass brands.

Bali Lane and Arab Street (between and around) are quite good for boutique-chic.

If you explain what you're after it might be easier to suggest....

Try the MAAD Market.

100% local designers, 100% original stuff, no commercially manufactured stuff.

It runs once a month I think.
