SIS­TERS are do­ing it for them­selves, and that couldn’t be truer for the Su siblings, founders of Two Sis­ters The

La­bel. With Ruby putting pen­cil to paper to cre­ate fancy frocks and Pauline steer­ing the ship, they are the ul­ti­mate

fash­ion em­pow­er­ment duo. “Two Sis­ters is all about mak­ing ev­ery girl feel con­fi­dent in their own body,” Pauline says. “We be­lieve that what we cre­ate can make girls look and feel

beau­ti­ful for their special oc­ca­sion. Most of our de­signs follow the theme of ‘dreamy and whim­si­cal’, which peo­ple love for

events such as en­gage­ments, wed­dings and birth­days. “We do oc­ca­sion­ally throw in some dressy ca­sual out­fits that can go from day to night.”

In­spi­ra­tion for the lat­est col­lec­tion came from an un­likely place – turns out, Mag­gie Smith is a fash­ion icon.

“Our lat­est in­spi­ra­tion was ac­tu­ally from the show Down­ton Abbey,” Pauline says. “The old dainty Victorian style is what we

had in mind when we de­signed this col­lec­tion – the high neck­line and ec­cen­tric lace de­tail­ings. “They are all beau­ti­ful but def­i­nitely the Riverdale dress and the Dakota dress are a cou­ple of favourites for sure.”

While this line was re­leased dur­ing the cooler months, it’s not your typ­i­cal win­ter col­lec­tion.

“We design out­fits that peo­ple can wear through­out the year,” Pauline says. “Dur­ing win­ter, our dresses can be lay­ered up with a coat and

some high knee boots and you are ready to go. “Our dresses are all summer ready, all you need is a cute hat

and a pair of san­dals or heels.”

That trans-sea­sonal ap­proach may have some­thing to do with

Pauline and Ruby’s in­ter­na­tional in­spi­ra­tion. “We travel the world for design in­spi­ra­tion, and that is what makes us dif­fer­ent,” Pauline says. “The world is full of dif­fer­ent cul­tures with their own unique


“We bring all these to­gether and hope that ev­ery girl can

ex­press their own style through fash­ion.”
