As some of your might already know, I founded Hollyhoque (WWW.HOLLYHOQUE.COM) when I was 18, way back when I was still schooling at Temasek Polytehnic. It was a tough juggle between these two then but thats not the point.I started small with buying ready goods from wholesalers and operated on livejournal which was cost free. Close to a year later, the orders grew, my customers like what I bring in and that was when I decided to take the plunge and start manufacturing Hollyhoque's very own designs. Don't be afraid to try, and always always keep your options open! I've never studied design so I read a lot of fashion magazines and spend hours on the internet, now Instagram, keeping myself updated with the fashion trends. Of course not all the designs I made are well received (Sometimes I even get negative/awful criticisms about our clothes) but it is still part of the learning process - finding out what my consumers like. After years of trial and errors, I figured that basics & knit-wear work best for Hollyhoque. No one has the power to shatter your dream unless you give it to them (: 

These are some of the #OOTD I  ripped off my Instagram @Sheilamansy >> 
I wouldn't say I have the best outfits or nicest photos but each getup reflects my mood at that moment and I really put in effort to edit them! Some of my favourite photo editing apps are VSCO, Afterlight, Diptic, Picsart, Over and ABM (: 

If you haven't heard about using the colour wheel to pair your outfit's colours, you need to read this! 

(Got this image from google)

Using the wheel as a guide, you can team up the colours as such
1) Colours next to each other 
2) Colours directly opposite each other
3) Brightening a monochrome outfit with primary colours (Red, Blue, Yellow) 
4) Colours that forms right angles with each other
(If you're playing with more colours in an outfit) 
5) Colours that form a T (E.g. Violet + Yellow + Red Orange) 
6) Colours that form a X (E.g. Blue + Orange + Yellow + Violet)  

Interesting aye? (:

Now come join me and start drafting your videos/blogpost then submit it HERE before 7th March!
You might just be the lucky winner! <3

Looking back.. I've been with Nuffnang for almost 3 years now and I'm always thankful to you, you and you reading this! Thanks for being interested in my travel updates and new food places!
