There's Something About Orchard

About the show:

Discover the wild and surprising history of the Orchard precinct back in the 1960s, as never before. Our guides to this iconic precinct are 3 young, intrepid hosts – a musician, a fashion designer and a chef – who take us on their deep dives into the past to dig up insider secrets about its music, fashion and food scenes. Was there really a topless cabaret along Scotts Road? How did trendsetting boutiques and supermodel sisters start Orchard’s reputation as a shopping district? And did Singapore’s first unofficial hawker centre really start in a Orchard carpark? Our hosts turn their history lessons into original creations inspired by the good old days of Orchard…by writing a song and shooting a funky music video, designing a retro fashion collection and launching a fashion show, and lastly curating an unforgettable dinner experience for a select few that marries Indian Mee Siam, Loh Gai Yik, Shashlik Kebab and many more.
