THE RO­MAN­TIC AT HEART

CHERRY WANG & SHAN­SHAN SU

“My love for fash­ion started in my mother’s closet. It was there that I first saw iconic la­bels

of the ’90s, like Calvin Klein, Ralph Lau­ren and Donna Karan. My mother’s style is clas­sic but also fear­less—she loves lux­u­ri­ous fab­rics and isn’t afraid of bold prints. She taught me to be brave and take charge but never for­get that class and grace will al­ways

speak louder.”

THE CL ASSIC MODERNIST

LINDA & PARIS PAL­CIT “You could say that I bor­rowed my all-black fash­ion uni­form from my mom, who taught me the im­por­tance of un­der­stated el­e­gance. I’ve been watch­ing and learn­ing from her since I was a lit­tle girl–she knows ex­actly how to in­stantly add pol­ish to any out­fit with

the per­fect ac­ces­sories. Now, we swap clothes on the reg­u­lar, which def­i­nitely has its perks! If only we had the same shoe size.”

THE FREE SPIRIT

SIF­FAT HAIDER & HINA YUNUS

“My mom taught me how to dress for my body type and be com­fort­able in my own skin. She en­cour­aged me to take fash­ion risks and find my own style with­out be­ing afraid of the opin­ion of oth­ers. She never thinks twice about wear­ing what makes her happy–even if it’s un­ex­pected–which has given me

the con­fi­dence to be my­self.”

“El­e­gant and mod­ern, this charm is just like my mom!” (Ster­lingsil­ver and cu­biczir­co­nia “Pavé Bar­rel” clip, $85)

“This sim­ple but clas­sic charm sym­bol­izes the unique bond we share.” (Gold and cu­bic-zir­co­nia “Sparkling Love Knot” charm , $440)

“My mom loves adding piz­zazz to her out­fits, and this heart-shaped charm does just that.” (Ster­lingsil­ver and pink-cu­biczir­co­nia “Mother Heart” charm, $55)
