I read it somewhere that there is an exhibition where holes are dug in the exhibit space. I think this idea is so awesome and how nice if we can all drop into the hole and appear somewhere else! Life should be fantasy of surprises:)

We're featured in CHIC Magazine!




Many Thanks to the fashionable team of CHIC who featured our shop and our skirt in the June issue of CHIC:) I love the article on where to look for good chocolate cakes..yum!

Heroine



Out of all the great works of Miyazaki animation films, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Winds is one of my favourite! I watched this recently and I think this is cooler than Avatar in many ways. From the story background to the cool ideas behind this movie when I was not even born! (1984)!

From this article I read, it clearly explained why his films are so sought after and I often reference his films for inspirations as the women/girl in the movies are always so strong yet at the same time fully aware of her femininity and charms the world in her little ways:)

We're featured in OUTRE!


Just a day ago, I met very tall and charming James from Outre as he wanted to shoot some behind the scenes pictures of my design process. And finally the post is out and I lurrrveeee this picture he took of me! I don't always have pictures of myself looking very serious as I love smiling and I think having a smile make one's face look slimmer too! Hope you guys enjoy the little glimpse of what I do before I launch each collection! And once again, Thank you James for your time:)

Mummy Dearest

On this special day for all mummy, I want to dedicate this post to my mum who is absolutely adorably fun and sweet and her love for me is so self giving and generous! I scribbled sweet nothings to her on the tissue paper and a little handmade card to tell her how cool she is! And I guess the best gift for her is making her a dress that she like!
Wishing all mummy out there the most fantastic day:)

Her Golden Words

"often people ask me
what you will wearing tonight?

i hate answering.
Why?... cause

I smell fashion,
I sniff fashion.

Fashion is as perfume
more you speak of it
more it fades away."

Anna Dello Russo speaking..

Meet Mina!


I got to know Mina through Serene from To the Nines and before we met, she styled Sally dress in black for one of her shoots! Through our conversation, I found out that she was one of the judging panel who judged for the Topshop/Topman award in 2007 when she was at Female Magazine! And she just started her blog which is filled with great articles on her take on fashion and many fabulous freebies too!
Mina now a freelance writer, stylist and editor popped by just a few hours ago and she is way cool and so bubbly!! Love the way she talks and you can literally see sparkles in her eyes when she talk about fashion! She gave me some really good pointers on how to improve my designs too:) Most importantly, it's just awesome to meet someone who is so passionate in promoting local designers!! We need more people like her!
