I am an 18 year-old who is studying in Singapore (Apparel design & merchandising, TP)

I love everything fashion magazines/campaigns/models and of course designers and collections.

I have been sewing since 15 and I dream of starting my own label one day, hopefully in a fashion captial.

I interned at the local Harper’s BAZAAR from Feb-April 08′.

I churn out capsule collections occasionally, you can see my work at Design Gallery

    I think this blog is great, and it’s really inspiring seeing another seventeen-year-old with a great blog since I’m the same age and I just started blogging. ( if you’re wondering).

    hope it goes well for you!

    You have very sophisticated taste for a seventeen year old. I am a Los Angeles based menswear designer with my own company. Drop me a line if you want to chat about the fashion business. I do private label manufacturing for a couple of womenswear companies too.

    Rather than owning a boutique, I think you should consider a career in fashion journalism or marketing.

    I need some help breaking into the scenes of high fashion and getting my name out. I am open for any advice on how to begin selling my products through popular low priced manufacturers as well as printing companies! Thank You

    I just stumbled upon your blog recently and I’m glad I did. Your “reviews” and takes are quite refreshing, and it’s great to see someone else my age who has an eye for this sort of thing!

    I wish you all the best in your undertakings. I happen to be studying in NYC at the moment, so if you ever do make it there, hit me up! 🙂

  22. February 27, 2009 8:27 pm

    I’m a fan.
    I love your reviews of collections and I think you have a sharp eye. It’s great to see a fellow Singaporean as interested in fashion as I am.

    Shall we blog link? I’m new to this and it’s disconcerting to write for non-existent readers.
