Team MissMalini: What time should one start shopping, in order to make the most of the day?

Fashion Pop Sale: We say just grab a smoothie or coffee and run! Every second is precious!

Team MM: What’s the most comfortable outfit to wear?… Because one will be trying on a ton of clothes.

FPS: Hot shorts and white t-shirt. It’s not only convenient but SUPER HOT TOO!

Team MM: What are your must picks for the season?

FPS: Digital prints are HUGE. Tops and dresses with back zippers, long floral dresses are back in vogue. The hottest selling this season are sheer tops and sequined jackets.

Team MM: Must one eat before shopping or after? 

FPS: Noooooooooooo! It’s a cardinal rule that you eat and gossip after you shop. Plus, you can drool over your spoils too!

Team MM: Who would make a perfect shopping partner? The boyfriend or a BFF?

FPS: Alone. So that you get the first choice as compared to your best gal and are not rushed by your boyfriend.

Team MM: What are the key things to notice when one shops at exhibitions?

FPS: For the international export brands, look out for good label names and best buys.

Team MM: What’s the one thing that is unique at the Fashion Pop Sale exhibition?
