ARISSA IDRIS, 22 Stu­dent

In Arissa’s books, fash­ion is de­fined as cheer­ing your own style with­out any hes­i­ta­tion, and that’s ex­actly how she’s able to pull off dif­fer­ent rugged looks every day. “As I was grow­ing up, I re­mem­ber see­ing my mum in her stylish out­fits and one of them was this beautiful dress – that’s when I fell in love with styling and de­cided to ex­plore it,” shares Arissa. “She was my go-to source of in­spi­ra­tion over the years and that made me dis­cover my per­sonal style.”

Most times, Arissa will go by the theme of the event that she’s at­tend­ing or her mood of the day to cre­ate her looks. On lazy days, you’ll see her in comfy, has­sle-free pieces – a cropped top, jeans and her trusted pair of pointed-toe heels. Three things to keep in mind about her style pref­er­ences – she prefers pas­tels over neon, vin­tage over mod­ern, and plain pieces over printed ones. She also loves berets and small­framed vin­tage shades, and TBH, she slays in them!

Cur­rently, Arissa is in the midst of com­plet­ing her de­gree in PR and Ad­ver­tis­ing but ad­mits that her ul­ti­mate pas­sion lies in event man­age­ment, es­pe­cially fash­ion-re­lated ones. “I fell in love with Rico Ri­naldi’s Sum­mer­aya 2018 fash­ion show. Ev­ery­thing from his lat­est col­lec­tion to the show lo­ca­tion was amaz­ing. I’d love to be the brains be­hind an event as cool as this, and maybe even be among those who will hit the lo­cal fash­ion scene one day,” she says.
