“My biggest inspiration at the moment is Eva Chen. Eva works at Instagram to help develop partnerships with fashion brands. She resonates well with me because she’s a mom and also a part of the crazy fashion world. She’s very raw and candid, which makes her very relatable and interesting. She manages to juggle family, work, working out and travelling to all the crazy events and fashion weeks while retaining a good sense of humour. I love the fashion world, but I also want to be who I am and not try to fit into a “standard” fashionista kind of image, and Eva is a great role model in that sense!” – Marie Soh, founder of local makeup brand Inga Cosmetics
