Fashion has been an intrinsic part of my life since my parents co-owned a promotional materials enterprise since I was young and ended learning screen printing during the school holidays and eventually learned how to stitch due to boredom after finishing high school and started my own t-shirt line under the name Next Universe but later had close shop due to the unavailability of quality fabrics at affordable prices.

I finally ended up as a thrifter due to the proximity of the thrift market and the availability of high end fashion and numerous concept materials to work with which led me to settling on being a stylist.

I now co-own a shoe store called Claw Collectables specializing in ladies and occasionally men’s shoes that are rare to find hence the name Claw Collectables.
