Mother of 3, batik addict, missyutopia and family. The 4 definitions that took me 10 seconds to scribble down, and another 30 minutes to engrave onto a personalized bracelet. This same spontaneity happens during my design process too. As the sole designer at utopia, I have a minimum number of designs per month to keep up with. Nonetheless, it has never been stressful as designs come naturally to me, and it is my favourite part of the job. I guess the fashion instinct and love is deeply embedded in my soul. The constant stream of samples that reaches my office continues to excite me even after 17 years.
Butterfly wings. Tummy rolls. Thunder thighs. Muffin tops. No. This is not a menu of any sorts. Just some description customers have used on themselves that I have collected over the years. Guiltily, I share this sense of self doubt regularly too. As a post-partum Mum myself, and who is not naturally slim, staying in shape has always been an uphill task for me too!
