The NBS Project!

I am so excited and thrilled!  In a day or two most of you will be able to experience what I have been preparing for, for almost under a year!  My very first collaboration with National Bookstore!  When Xandra Ramos approached me with the idea of working with them I was over the moon!  National bookstore is so iconic that I really am humbled and honoured to be able to work with them.  We all grew up with this prestigious institution that has in a way moulded the hearts and minds of many generations.


I remember I would go to National bookstore with the savings from my “baon” and buy sketch pads and coloured pencils and be so happy!  Then I graduated into collecting fashion books and magazines that would always me dream about where I could go and what I could do.

Now I can’t wait for all of you to see and experience what I came up with.  I started the whole process by thinking of what I would want for myself and what I would need.  First were the notebooks.  I am a notebook aficionado and I am never with out one so this was really a priority. Then came the Tote’s!  I must have more than a dozen tote bags that I always use but I wanted to create a tote  that wold synthesised all the best qualities in the tote bags that I like and came up with what I think is a real winner.







I also love my water tumblr which I am always in the search for something sleek and simple, something that you would be proud to put on your work desk and whisk away to the gym.  I also have the coolest umbrella that is designed is such a way that you can proudly wear in slung across your body and when you open it has an elongated back that would keep your back dry as you walk stylishly in the rain.  Because I love to travel I came out with some chic travel accessories like a cool passport holder and luggage tags that are not only cool but oh so affordable.








I just want to share with all of you the process that we all went through so you can appreciate the products more.  Thank you to everyone over at National Bookstore for the tremendous support!  It was really such a dream working with all of you!  The entire collection will be available in stores starting OCT 18 so please check the items out. Oh!  The items are quite limited as we only produced a few pieces so that it becomes more special and collectible. See you all at National Bookstore!
