JET SET, GO!
CHRISTINNA KUAN MAY CALL HERSELF A SIMPLE GIRL BUT WITH SOCIAL MEDIA STAR STATUS, THIS FASHIONISTA IS ON THE WAY TO GREATER THINGS!
CHRISTINNA KUAN, 21 Fashion influencer/entrepreneur
She’s known as Ms Kuan on Instagram, and despite her impeccable, posh fashion sense, we found Christinna to be extremely down to earth. At only 21, she already has her own clothing line and is in the midst of opening a store in Penang sometime this year! But that’s not all. On top of having her own business and travelling around the world, she’s also pursuing a Diploma in Fashion Design. And yet, she never lets her busy schedule get in the way of looking her best.
Believe it or not, Christinna’s go-to outfits are oversized tees and shorts; and she loves to constantly experiment with different styles that reflect her outgoing personality. “I’m into all things minimal, feminine and quirky. I love to play with different colours. When I’m putting on my accessories, I usually pick out those that will match my sneakers,” she says. Christinna’s love for art galleries and museums are her main source of inspiration for referencing colours and typefaces into her designs for her own fashion line. “I take styling inspos from fashion and interior design blogger Aimee Song (aka Song of Style) and look up to Taiwanese actress Molly Chiang as these women are iconic not only in terms of fashion, but in the way they showcase their views on youth culture with a mix of their cool, IDGAF attitude.”
