We had our annual CNY Networking Dinner last Friday. It was a time of bonding and celebrating the successes Taff had for the past year with our members. We also had the honour of having Senior Minister of State Ms Sim Ann graced our event and being so supportive of Taff’s activities as well as the fashion industry. We are looking forward to enjoying more exciting activities in the year ahead as we work together to bring our local designers to greater heights.
