Fashion styling and design has been a deep passion of mine since childhood, I remember flipping through countless high fashion magazines as a teen and something sparked inside of me when visually I was met with so much joy.

However, being a plus size kid and young adult in the 90s and 2000s certainly did not give me any material to express myself through style and fashion. I had to DIY alot with my existing baggy clothings.

Modern plus size fashion did not exist until 2010, so I grew up being oppressed by the fashion industry only wanted to create things for my counterpart straight size humans.

I started in 2008,  I wanted to write about plus size fashion resources for my community of people over a US size 4 in Hong Kong and Asia.
