We’re very pleased to announce that our regular contributing editor and photographer, May Lin Le Goff, has been named the winner of Canon FSO Fashion Photography Challenge 2010.

Over 1000 entries were submitted for this competition. Obtaining the highest votes and beating 30 other finalists, May Lin Le Goff has been awarded first place!

Thank you very much to everyone who sent in SMS votes & supported May Lin Le Goff.

Heres a look at the winning entry again.

In other news, TSG’s entry to the Harper’s BAZAAR & ION Orchard Photography awards has been given an honourable mention in the June 2010 issue of Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore.

We’d like to thank Max Tan of label max.tan, who specially customized a millinery design for us for the Harper’s BAZAAR awards.

Drawing inspiration from the flow of lines of the ION’s exterior and Serge Lutens’ campaign work for Shiseido in the 1980s, we attempt to meld fashion, art and architecture in our series of images.

Beautiful translation

“The world’s most beautiful flowers bloom in ceaseless infrequency,
While the most stunning sceneries last only for the shortest time.
Please, no more excuses about leaving,
You’re not convincing me with just a glass of wine.
Here, let’s refill our empty desires,
Because honestly, when we will we stop getting love drunk?
My tears are brought upon by my yearnings,
Tell me my love, after this wonderful night, when will you return?”

- Inspired by Teresa Teng’s “When Will You Return”
