The Straits Times Luxury fashion retailer The Valiram Group did not miss a beat this year despite the flagging economy. It launched its Victoria's Secret flagship store at Mandarin Gallery in Orchard Road last month, shortly after opening its Michael Kors flagship in the same mall in September, the American brand's first such store in South-east Asia.
Both stores, occupying a total of 19, sq ft, have given Orchard Road a much-needed retail lift in time for Christmas. Mr Mukesh Jethanand Valiram, the youngest of three brothers of the Valiram family - his grandfather Utumal Valiram founded the Malaysian business in Kuala Lumpur in - played an integral role in the negotiations to bring the brands here.
The married father of one describes sales at the new Victoria's Secret store here as "phenomenal" - about 30 per cent higher than the group's projections.
The Michael Kors flagship is also performing above expectations. Ever the optimist, Mr Valiram, who is making his debut on the Life Power List, is unfazed by the retail slump. It's about being an agile retailer," says the Malaysian, who is based in Singapore. He says the group, which expanded the number of Tumi and Kate Spade stores here this year, is"aggressively growing" at a rate of 35 per cent a year.
Tumi is a US-based manufacturer of travel suitcases and bags, while Kate Spade is an American fashion design house. Next year, the company will reintroduce Italian shoe brand Giuseppe Zanotti - popular with celebrities such as singers Taylor Swift and Gwen Stefani- to Singapore.
The Straits Times Five years passed between Boo Junfeng's first feature film, Sandcastleand his second, Apprentice, which was released this year to acclaim. In that time, he went from working with first-time actors to handling veterans and from filming at a few locations in Singapore to working in large prison sets in Australia.
He hopes his next film will not take as long to make. Apprentice, a film about prisoner executions, was selected for the Certain Regard section at the Cannes Film Festival this year. The Netpac, or Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema, award is the only one at the festival given to a non-Chinese-language film. Boo likes to explore the places where the personal and the political meet. Sandcastle, which in put him on the Life Power List for the first time, is a poetic look at a teen coming to terms with his father's role as a student agitator.
In Apprentice, a young prison guard learns the business of death from an older colleague. Stories like these take a lot of crafting to get right and Boo thinks he has some way to go. The film-makers I look up to are of a certain age.
I'm far from where I'd like to be. Within a week of the year-old British actress' red carpet appearance, all three colours of the triangular-shaped bag - black, bronze and burgundy - were sold out online and at the retailer's 29 stores here. In an e-mail interview with The Straits Times in September, Mr Charles Wong, who is making his debut on the Life Power List, said he was "definitely thankful for the positive reaction that has been garnered". He founded the brand with his younger brother Keith, 40, in It started as a small shoe shop at Amara Shopping Centre.
Their first overseas store opened in Indonesia two years later. The company now has more than stores worldwide. The brothers declined to be interviewed for the Power List. A new store at Waterway Point shopping mall in Punggol opened in January.

Acknowledging the stiff competition in the market for music festivals, Mr Chew says it will be a case of "survival of the fittest". Universal Music Singapore When Gentle Bones sold out two nights at the Esplanade Concert Hall in June, it was a milestone in the home-grown English music scene - the first time a solo artist with indie roots achieved such a feat.
Filling up one of Singapore's most prestigious music venues in his first headline show proved that the audience for home-grown indie artists is growing and earns Gentle Bones a place on the Life Power List.
The past couple of years saw him building up his fan base on social media and via music- and video-streaming services. The gigs showed that his fans were willing to buy tickets and sing their hearts out to his songs at his live shows.

Tan says he "never dared imagine" the response that he received for the shows in Singapore. He is currently working on securing live shows around the region and is planning to head back to the studio soon to prepare new releases.

Carole Leung Grammy nominee Darrell Ang is a powerhouse in the world of classical music. He is making his debut on the Life Power List for his stellar achievements this year. Ang, who lost to Latvian conductor Andris Nelsons, is said to be the second Singaporean to get a Grammy nomination.
It was this recording that inspired the management of the Sichuan Symphony Orchestra in China to name him the orchestra's artistic director early last week.
The Paris-based conductor is also recognised for his leadership of the Singapore International Festival of Music. The festival comprised classical music and vocal concerts by both renowned international musicians, such as the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, and Singapore talents, such as Chinese chamber music ensemble Ding Yi Music Company.

He is the founder of Naiise and she is its marketing director. The Straits Times Singapore-designed products, such as ang ku kueh-shaped cushions and shirts, and notebooks emblazoned with Singlish phrases, have been massively popular in the last few years.
This phenomenon owes much to Naiise, a three-year-old multi-label store that stocks goods by local designers. Consumers are lapping up the Singapore-themed goods. That is why Naiise, which started online, expanded this year despite a sluggish retail scene. It is also why its founders are making their debut on the Life Power List.
In May, it opened its flagship store, an 8, sq ft space in the basement of The Cathay in Handy Road, and a 5, sq ft Wonderland-themed pop-up store in Suntec City mall. It currently has five permanent stores and two pop-ups.
It also launched Friends of Naiise, a membership programme that comes with exclusive perks; and I Eat Design, Naiise's first food- meets-design festival. Not bad for a business that started in its founder's bedroom. He later roped in Ms Eng to be its marketing director. The pair, who got married last year, welcomed their first child this year.
Mr Tay says Naiise has stuck to its original ethos of supporting local design even as it grows. Every week, the store puts out 20 to 30 new designs, and represents Singapore labels to date. And next year looks to be promising. Mr Eng plans to take Naiise overseas, setting up a shop in Kuala Lumpur and starting a website dedicated to London. The British capital might be a surprise choice to expand into, but he says Naiise gets a sizeable number of orders from there. The new challenge is to stock Singapore-designed products that have an international appeal.
