Y21 WOMAN #6 / AIRIN LEE
Coming from a workaholic, it takes losing something dear to you for you to learn how to cherish what’s important. Learn to say no once in awhile, though friends and family can be tolerative and supportive, support is a two way street.
Y21 WOMAN #5 / CHRISTINE TAN
Having the freedom to do whatever I want and travelling. I love being able to discover new places and the culture, architecture and nature brings me so much joy.
Y21 WOMAN #4 / ELIZABETH CHIN
Yes, always set time for yourself and family members. Also know that while we may be replaceable at work, we’re never replaceable in the hearts of our family members.
Y21 WOMAN #3 / KELLY MISA
Make a list before sleeping, like all the things you need to do the next day, set your alarm, forget about it and really sleep. Then try your best to accomplish all the things on the list, whether it’s just a small task or a big one, be proud you did it.
Y21 WOMAN #2 / ELAINE T.
I’ve always loved using flowers as a medium of creative expression. It wasn’t till I created wedding flowers for an ex-colleague that I realise I can enjoy working with flowers and make someone’s day!
Y21 WOMAN #1 / MARITHA MAE
Bloom where you’re planted. Remember that good things take time. Also, be a lifelong learner and keep on soaking up new information no matter where you are in the journey. It’ll help you grow and become a better version of yourself.
WHY DID WE REBRAND FROM YACHT 21 TO Y21?
Since last year, our design team had to work on creating smaller collections to reduce risk of dead stocks and it enabled us to stay sustainable by reducing wastage. We took the chance to engage with our customers on a personal level, experimented on new fabric and refined our designs. The pandemic gave us a chance to reflect and we believe it is for the better.
