At the age of 22, Abby Sim has already set her major rules for fashion: “If the top is sexy the bottom must be covered. If the bottom is sexy the top must be covered. And if I dress too simply, I must add some unique items like jewellery, a hat, a bag and shoes.”

Abby, who has a small body look, graduated high school from BelTei International Institute. In 2011, she became a model, makeup artist, stylist and art director for photo shoots. She also owned an internet shop, online fashion and beauty store, and was a shareholder for a beauty care centre.

For Abby, good fashion is all about being simple while catching other people’s attention.

“I like to be different but simple and I just like to have fun with my clothes by chopping them up and sewing them by myself.”

Abby said that she loves to express her feelings through the style of her clothes in order to make herself different from the other girls.

“When you’re different, you’re unique. Normally, the outfit of the day depends on how you feel for that day. I like to add some colour to myself if I’m having a good mood. Dress up comfy anytime when I’m not in the mood. It must be my lazy day if I wear only shorts and a T-shirt. ”

Abby said she likes going to the thrift store and making her own clothes. She said that she does not like other people wearing her fashion.​“I know it’s selfish since I don’t like to have other people have the same outfit as me. I like to make myself feel comfortable with what I’m wearing. For hair and face makeup, I do it myself. I even cut or colour it.” In addition to her dressing style rules, Abby also has a makeup rule.​“If I wear heavy makeup, I should wear a simple dress and If dress up sexy, it should be a simple makeup so then it won’t look like it’s too much.”
