As FUCHSIA’s Fashion Editor, I strongly believe that all women have personality traits that set us apart, making us all different. While societal pressures often push us to fit a certain feminine mould, I believe a woman should be able to be her true self – bold or shy, elegant or spunky, old-fashioned or contemporary, serious or playful, risk-taking or safe, sociable or reserved – every woman should be celebrated as a woman of her own unique substance. And one powerful way to make a statement about who a woman truly is, is to embody her unique personality traits through her fashion sense, her outfits and her appearance. With this in mind, I created a collection which I believe will resonate with all women, because it is inspired by the women around me.
To celebrate a diversity of women, I decided to involve phenomenal talents Meena Bennet, Mrs Singapore 2016, and expat hair-and-makeup-artist Salma Abbas, both mothers-of-two, just like me.
Make A Statement
This chiffon-and-velvet plush High-Low Jacket is for the woman who likes to make a statement. She is bold, fearless and can rock those sleeves hanging all the way down to her heels, like a pro.
Not-so-bold, but elegant enough to make heads turn – pure and light-weight, this crepe silk drape shirt is for women who believe in less-is-more.
A woman who likes to hold onto something old while exploring that which is new will enjoy the traditional lace combined with a modern cut This cut is for the princess in all of us.
She has a playful side to her, yet wants to be recognised as a woman of substance. She likes taking little risks and playing with colours, yet keeps composed, silently smiling within.
Work Life Balance
For the woman who loves catching up with friends over lunch-breaks or right after work, this crop top is the perfect piece to throw on over her work trousers to hit the town. I promise, you will carry this to work in your handbag!
Ladies Who Like To Lunch
This asymmetrical cut is for the lady who likes to lunch or dine – edgy yet sophisticated, and always getting her compliments.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
For the girl who gets bored with having to pair-up outfits, or feels short of clothes when the social scene becomes insane – this jacket and a neutral top-and-trouser pair, or a jumpsuit will never fail her. She can go bright, subtle, playful or elegant.
