SINGAPORE DAY 8
We had the opportunity today to tour a fashion design studio called the cocoon. She told us that the name was symbolic of the firm taking in growing designers and fostering them like little caterpillars that will hopefully grow large enough to come out of the cocoon as a butterfly. I absolutely love this concept. Fostering creativity is so much more important then we know. On that note, this is the third firm now that has talked about how the government here in Singapore finances companies that work with start ups or creative endeavors of some form. There is something here, there is something to that. Yet, we have continuously ran into Singaporeans not knowing they are seen as this creative booming country.
