The SG50 Hello Kitty Plush Collectible Set includes:
1) Hello Kitty in Cheongsam: The cheongsam is a traditional one-piece Chinese dress for women. Created in the 1920s in Shanghai, cheongsam was made fashionable by socialites and upper class women. Today, it is popularly worn during the Chinese New Year period and formal occasions.
2) Hello Kitty in Baju Kurung: The baju kurung is a traditional Malay costume for women. A knee-length blouse worn over a long skirt, baju kurung is simple, graceful and comfortable to wear at all times, including special occasions such as weddings, engagements and public functions.
3) Hello Kitty in Saree: Originating from India, the saree is a female garment consisting of a drape varying from 5-9 yards in length and 0.67-1.33 yards in breadth. It is typically wrapped around the waist, with one end draped over the shoulder, baring the midriff.
4) Hello Kitty in SG50 Outfit: Hello Kitty proudly celebrates Singapore’s Golden Jubilee by wearing a red and white T-shirt with the logo, “I love Singapore”.
5) Hello Kitty in Colonial Postman Uniform: From colonial times to the late 1970s, Singapore’s postmen wore khaki-coloured cotton uniforms that were ironed with starch to stiffen them up.
*Both Hello Kitty in SG50 Outfit and Colonial Postman Uniform will also be sold individually at S$19.65 each from June to August 2015, whilst stocks last.
