Wan­der­lust

Women's Weekly (Malaysia) - - Women -

+ Co may be founded by a Malaysian but it has cer­tainly made waves in­ter­na­tion­ally. Af­ter all, stars like Gigi Ha­did, Se­lena Gomez, Ken­dall Jen­ner and Jes­sica Alba have all donned jewellery from the brand at mu­sic fes­ti­vals and on the red car­pet! Jenn humbly says she never had the in­ten­tion to be­come so im­mersed in the fash­ion world.

“I had a stint with a com­pany in Mel­bourne known for stock­ing ac­ces­sories from Aus­tralian de­sign­ers,” she says. “That ex­pe­ri­ence opened up a whole new world and led me to cre­ate Wan­der­lust + Co.” “Go to a good de­sign school. Lon­don and New York are homes to some of the best in the world – it never hurts to ac­quire all the tech­ni­cal knowl­edge and skills you can.

“If you can’t go to school, don’t worry. Work to­wards get­ting a job with a com­pany in the jewellery in­dus­try and be pre­pared to learn from the ground up.

“As I al­ways say to my girls, ex­pe­ri­ence is truly ev­ery­thing. The knowl­edge and lessons that you learn are yours to keep and they will stay with you for life. Be will­ing to put in the ef­fort, stay the course and you will get to where you want to be in due time.”
