The past two years has seen this quirky, free-spirited DJ/stylist focus on creative projects and collaborations, and advocating against waste in the fashion industry on a personal level. (She’s big on thrift store shopping and often challenges herself to create new looks with her existing wardrobe.)
This year, she’s stepping up on both. For one, she hopes to nurture the next generation of artists and designers, so besides training to become a children’s arts instructor, she’s recently started working part-time at the creativity-oriented kid’s charity Playeum.
Meanwhile, rediscovering fabric leftover from the days of Yesah, her defunct fashion label, has sparked off her most ambitious idea as an eco-warrior: a lifestyle concept covering everything from clothes to art objects made solely from said “scraps”. She says: “Whatever material I have will determine the result.” Being in charge means “Being responsible for making the right decisions.” Female role model “My mother, who always makes wise decisions.”
