While we often spot a drop dead gorgeous Giorgio Armani or Dolce & Gabbana gown on the Tatler Ball red carpet, it's a rare treat when we see our very own local talent being worn by our beloved guests: you. Because local designers don't get enough lovin', here's a brief history of local couture pieces that have graced the Tatler Ball with their beauty.


2017 was the year where Farah Khan designs were plentiful. Our top three favourites was this slinky gold number on Kavita, a gorgeous artsy print on Dato' Seri Farah Khan herself and a gunmetal silver gown with daring thigh high slit on Esha Geneid.


Although 2017 was mostly dominated by Farah Khan's elegant beaded pieces, there were several others from local designers that caught our eye.


Silky almost architectural designs - a trait that set apart Dato' Jovian Mandagie's designs reigned supreme in 2016. We are so in love with those exaggerated bows!


Celest Thoi's feminine and classic silhouettes took over the scene in 2015, bringing to mind the sophisticated styles of Hollywood red carpet events.


2014 was an eclectic mix of designers ranging from Michael Ong and KK Ng to two very different Jonathans - Jonathan Cheng and Jonathan Liang.


From ethereal gossamer dresses to bold shoulders and sharper silhouettes, 2013's local designers of choice ran the gamut from Innai Red to Khoon Hooi.
