Tell us about yourself...
I'm a 26 years old Filipina-British. An anthropologist by training and heart, I am interested in anything human and “social”. My approach to fashion mirrors my approach to life - I do things that makes sense to me! My dream wardrobe can be anything from monochromatic basics to clothes with some juicy jungle rhythm to it. Aesthetic lies in the eyes of the beholder and when you decide that it’s you, then the clothes you wear will communicate that - the rest are just spectators.

Top piece of advice for someone new to rental?
Explore and embrace the community! The clothes you wear is more than just fashion, it’s your identity. Follow or unfollow trends, there will always be a community for you in the fashion rental world
What's been your favourite rental so far?
I will be renting Eshita’s yellow Vampire’s Wife dress next week. Next one on the list is the iconic pink Regina Pyo dress (I honestly think that BR made this dress very popular & is also synonymous to the brand!)
