(As written by our designer, Miss OSIXNINE Herself)
Every career has to start somewhere. As for me, I didnt start by sewing or knitting. Like every other girl, I am a major shopaholic for as long as I could remember but because I loved clothes and accessories which were unique and fashionably loud, I started doing my own accessories, and altering clothes to my own desire and that fits my small figure. Ive had random people that come up to me asking where I got my clothes from; and how they like the accessories Ive done. I was even featured in TV3s Remaja for Japanese-style dressing.
My first attempt of fashion design was when I designed my senior year prom dress and from there, Ive started using my graphic design skills to be put on shirts, and started selling my merchandises on the net, such as my personal web domain (osixnine.com), eBay Malaysia, selltrade_kl, and PurpleMascara; Malaysias only shopaholics community on LiveJournal. One of my designs even got nominated into Threadless.com!
My hopes for the near future is to extend my fashion business as much as I can, and set a good example to the youths that anything is possible if you dare to dream. Having said that, my ultimate goal is to get Gwen Stefani to wear my design!
