I am currently pursuing my PhD in Cultural Studies at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and my research will focus on the local fashion industry, examining its potential as an international fashion capital.

An English major by training, I received both my Bachelors and Masters degrees in English Literature from the National University of Singapore. Upon graduation from the National Institute of Education (NIE), I taught General Paper and ‘A’ Level English Literature in both public and private schools. I also spent a few years in fashion publishing due to my interest in fashion and its impact on society, and publications I’ve worked at include ELLEL’OfficielHarper’s Bazaar and Style:.
