I think my best visit was last year in May 06 when I was on transit to Cambodia. I popped into the shop with my trolley bag, told Sharon I only had 45 mins before I had to leave for the airport and still managed to leave with a $500++ bill and a super heavy trolley bag!! Whew...its a good thing their shop space is not that big else I might have missed my connecting flight. :-)
Newsletters from Laine's used to sign off with only 2 names (Elaine and Sharon) and now its signed off with 7 names. Its amazing to see how they have grown in just 2 short years! Not only that, they have a new space opening soon that's 1000sq ft big. I checked with The Dude and that's 2 and a half times bigger than my parent's den where we watch tv. Jazz...that's HUGE isn't it and can accomodate classes for 20 people!! I'm not entirely sure of the location of Laine's Designer Studio (somewhere in the east of Singapore or is there a mall called East?) but be sure that I will visit when I'm next in Singapore!
