What's the atmosphere like in the office?
It’s like a sorority house minus the cattiness. Seriously though, we're all like sisters. We share trends, shopping and fashion secrets; we encourage everyone to look as best as they could possibly be—apparel-wise. There's enough diversity in taste and personality that I’m pretty sure we cover every possible Filipinas body type and style.
Is there pressure to dress up in the office because of the nature of your job?
It’s true that everyone is always dressed up in our office, especially in our division. We are often [teased] or asked if we're going to a party; but I don’t think there’s pressure to dress that way. I strongly encourage it—and actively participate—and I’m glad my girls enjoy it. I’m hoping they sincerely do!
Someone has to test run these crazy trends and who better than us, right? That way we get to see if it works or doesn’t before we serve them to you.
What do you like the most about work?
Buying. It’s been six years and every time we go through samples and form collections, it still thrills me. Working with the best buying team ever makes it even more enjoyable.>
