Describe your personal style – I would describe my personal style as bold, sexy and confident. I enjoy following the latest clothing trends especially for dresses and swimwear. I usually prefer darker plain colors with a good cutting. For my daily look, I’m usually in shorts or skirts with a simple tank top or t-shirt. For work, I usually wear slim fit dresses some with floral prints or summer colours. If I’m going for a shoot or casting, I usually just wear a plain coloured tank top with jeans. My night look is usually sexy dresses or jeans and midriff tops, if I’m heading for a night out about town. I also am a huge fan of swimwear and love collecting cute bikinis of different designs for a day at the beach or by the pool!
Look 3: Dress – H&M, Shoes – Nose, Earrings – Forever 21
What do you think about the fashion scene in KL – I think the fashion scene in KL is certainly growing. The hipster trend seems to be very popular among the younger generation now. In my line of work, I do meet a lot of stylish people in the fashion industry and it’s always nice to see how people mix and match their clothes and accessories. I would however, like to see people get a bit more daring with their fashion sense and take risks with more cutting edge styles that you might see in places like L.A. or London. I feel that a lot of people in KL are still in their comfort zones and are not exploring different styles and trends that are taking off in the bigger fashion capitals.
Look 4: Dress – Miss Selfridge, Shoes – Guess, Earrings – Diva
Your favourite place to shop – My favourite places to shop would be Miss Selfridge, Zara and Bebe for sexy dresses. For casual wear, I just love H&M, Topshop and Forever 21. I always manage to find cute midriff tops, skirts and shorts from these places, which are also usually very affordable. I also happen to have a personal fashion collection called Urban Niche which specialises in dresses and swimwear, so, of course, a lot of my own personal clothes are from there. Many of the swimwear in my collection are inspired by Beach Bunny and Triangl Swimwear, which I absolutely adore. For shoes and accessories, I get great stuff from Charles & Keith, Vincci, Guess, Nose, Diva and Lovisa.
