Photo Diary: Mae Tan Photographs Friends And Fam At Prada’s Thunder Pop-Up

When Prada, the arbiter of cool and go-to brand of fashion’s most respected designers invites you to its pop-up, you turn up. But if you’re Mae Tan, you don’t just rock up in the season’s best Prada ‘fit for some champers and shopping—you co-host its opening night together with the brand, invite a dozen of your coolest buds to hang out (in soon-to-be-iconic Prada prints), and get trigger happy with a Polaroid camera.

Giving ELLE Singapore exclusive dibs on her snaps from that Prada night, see the shindig through Mae’s lenses, below.
