Describe your personal style – Dalston hipster meets Kreuzberg artist. Haha, no I’m just joking. I’d like to think my style is an amalgamation of Alexa Chung, London street style and colourful prints.

Your thoughts on the fashion scene in KL – I’m not a fan, everyone is either too dressed up or too dressed down. Our girls have yet to reach the effortless casualness you see on the streets in Europe. Malaysians are also the very definition of ‘hypebeast’ – it’s all about the New Balance sneakers, Herschel/Fjallraven backpack, Obey cap, Pestle & Mortar t-shirt – this can get very repetitive. KL-ites have yet to define a look that is distinctly theirs. Also there is a lack of ‘fashionable’ areas in the city, no place where style-crazed KL-ites can hang out and inspire each other.
Look 4: Blazer – Primark, Singlet – Weekday, Cutoffs – Vintage market in Madrid, Boots – Acne Studios, Belt – Levi’s, Ring – Marc by Marc Jacobs
Your favourite places to shop – Weekday is my absolute favourite place to shop – you can never go wrong with a pair of Cheap Monday’s! On the high street I usually always hit up Urban Outfitters, American Apparel, Primark, Acne Studios and of course, Monki! 😉 I’m also a huge vintage shopper, so Beyond Retro, Rokit and the rest of Brick Lane in London are a must-do on a Sunday. Other places I’d highly recommend for vintage shopping are the Malasaña area in Madrid and Oderbergerstrasse in Berlin. Trust me!
