Female (Malaysia) - - FASHION BEAT -

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.”
