There were gowns aplenty at the red carpet during the Golden Globes awards ceremony held on Monday (Jan 7). And spotted among them was a creation by a Singaporean designer.

Access Hollywood host Kit Hoover was seen doing her interviews wearing a nude illusion gown with floral cutouts by Raffiey Nasir.

The request from the American TV personality for the special dress was accepted only a week before the date of the event, the 31-year-old designer told Berita Mediacorp.

“I am happy but at the same time, I had to do a lot of research on the design and fabric that can be used for Kit Hoover in red carpet. The dress took about two three days to produce. I am very grateful to my hard-working group members. In a very short time, we managed to send the dress to Los Angeles to dress her up,” said the designer, whose creations have also been worn by hip-hop artist Ashanti, Kimmy Gatewood of the Netflix show GLOW and social media influencer Tana Mongeau.

"I dun know what to say.. years of hardwork paid off when i get to see my dress on the hollywood redcarpet," he posted on Instagram. 

If there’s one celebrity he’d really like to dress up, it’s Beyonce. "If given the opportunity, I want to work with Beyonce as she is one of the world's fashion icons and many of her life's journeys I can inspire in my design,” he said.

Raffiey is set to open a boutique at Concorde Hotel to mark his tenth year in the fashion business, and he will also be launching a bridal collection on Jan 20.
