At just under 5 feet 4 and 16 years of age, Shian Li Chiam is all about making a statement and standing proud in the crowd. With a spotlight constantly on her and a natural gravitation towards sequins and sparkles and anything that's flashy, she's a fearless little fashionista, unafraid to be bold.
Clinging onto her is a delicate white, a false hue saturated with pristine elegance. It is the colour of grace, of delicacy, of vulnerability. A beaded heaviness clasped at her neck, willing to toughen the stifling tenderness. She is vulnerability too intricate to fathom, an iron-coated glass mistaken as a tipping porcelain cup.
"Don't. Follow. Rules. When it comes to fashion.
Make your own style.
Make your own statement.
Just be comfortable with yourself."
And that's what Jennifer Prince is all about; a sense of peace and comfort within oneself despite rebelling heavily against a set of socially accepted rules. Arms wide open in the pursuit of positivism, she stands firm in the glare of class and sophistication, a rooter for staying true to one's own style.
