LOU PEI XIN, 25

Singer-song­writer and co-owner of Baju Mama Vin­tage store.

Herworld (Singapore) - - TO KNOW -

Lou has added two more hy­phens to her CV this year: She now chairs tech and cy­ber­se­cu­rity events, where she uses her skills and con­tacts in the mu­sic in­dus­try to help clients like IBM and Mi­crosoft in­ject the arts into their net­work­ing events; and she men­tors stu­dents at Raf­fles Girls’ School and Ngee Ann Polytech­nic.

The for­mer “is my way of gain­ing cred­i­bil­ity not just in the arts world, but also in the cor­po­rate world. I am not happy do­ing just one thing – I am mul­ti­fac­eted”.

The sec­ond “helps younger peo­ple dis­cover their po­ten­tial and en­ergy. I am rel­a­tively young, but I think I have a lot to share that peo­ple can learn from. I want the next gen to be much more suc­cess­ful and em­pow­ered than I am”.

This month, her Christ­mas sin­gle, Christ­mas in My City, which she wrote two years ago and has been per­form­ing for two Christ­mases, will fi­nally be re­leased.

“It’s about what a Sin­ga­pore Christ­mas is like – not hav­ing win­ter, but walk­ing in malls and feel­ing like it’s 10 deg C, peo­ple com­plain­ing ev­ery year that the Or­chard Road lights are not as nice as last year’s, but ul­ti­mately also driv­ing home that those are not the im­por­tant things.”

Cot­ton bustier dress, $31,000, metal neck­lace (price un­avail­able), and leather belt, $2,900, Chris­tian Dior.
