Sifting Through





Andy Warhol







Where are you from and what brings you to Singapore?
I’ve travelled down from Kuala Lumpur with some friends to catch The Strokes in concert. I’ve been a fan of their music since I was in secondary school and it’ll be my first time watching them live!

You mentioned that you’re self-employed. What sort of business do you do?
I run a curated vintage clothing store on the online platform Grailed, which is parented in the US, where consumers can buy and sell vintage clothing internationally.

Why did you decide to start a vintage clothing shop?
I was influenced by my brother when I was younger to start thrifting, and I’ve been interested in vintage clothes ever since. When I was retrenched during Covid-19, I decided to start curating vintage pieces.

It’s going well so far, but of course there are ups and downs depending on the season.

Any plans to open a physical store?
Not at the moment. I’m focusing my business solely online for now as it’s more cost-saving and convenient.

Where are your favourite spots for thrift shopping?
I usually buy wholesale in Johor Bahru, but I’ll keep the location a secret (laughs).
