The idea came about when Kate Ngo, CEO of Asto Group, heard that her friends had the same concern when it comes to getting their design out there. It's a struggle for most newbies to get a team and have the right marketing strategy, so she thought of creating an online platform to cater to this need. Hence, the birth of Asto Group—an online platform that gathers the best upcoming young designers to help them get the right exposure not just locally, but all over the world!
More than just an online portfolio, Asto Group is also an e-commerce site where you can buy pieces from the designers that strike your fancy. No need to fly to Singapore to meet up with About Alexander, one of the many designers featured, just to order a top or a dress, because Asto can do that for you. As a way to play with diversity, the group currently has designers from Singapore, Thailand, Tokyo, Melbourne, and two creative groups from Cebu who are set to release their designs on the website in the coming months.
We are so looking forward to discover and shop new pieces from a wide range of upcoming designers and we're pretty sure you are, too! So head on over to http://astogroup.com with your name and email address to see what's in store for you!
