Cheerio Christmas Day 9: Three One Duo
On Cheerio Christmas Day 9, we have with us another Girlboss, Beatrice! Beatrice is the Founder of Three One Duo, a local fashion brand launched in May 2019, with the aim to not just run a business, but to create a community with like-minded fashion enthusiasts. Three One Duo focuses on bringing in fashion styles that are appropriate for younger women, aged 17 to 25.
We spoke to Beatrice (pictured above) to find out more about the story behind Three One Duo.
Q: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
A: It was always my childhood dream to have a fashion brand of my own. I’ve enjoyed fashion and styling since I was young, and often looked at clothes thinking how they can be improved. I didn’t want to start any other business, I knew that I only wanted to start a fashion business.
Q: What was your mission / goals when you first started?
A: Apart from creating a community for young fashion enthusiasts alike, the eventual goal will be to manufacture our own label of apparels and own a retail store.
Q: How has 2019 been for your business, and what are you looking forward to in 2020?
A: Well we just started for about half a year so I’d say it’s been a rollercoaster of ups and downs. Of course there’s good and bad days but generally it’s been very fulfilling thus far and I’m definitely looking forward to the exciting lineups in 2020!
Q: What are the greatest joys and challenges running this business?
A: Joys will definitely be knowing/seeing people happy with their new clothes from our store! Or the moments when we receive a new order notification! As for challenges, there are aplenty, as expected of a new business. Personally, the biggest challenge for me is coping with the business as an individual and finishing all the tasks within tight deadlines.
Q: Out of all the products you retail, which is your personal favourite and why?
A: This is a tough question for me because I’m the one sourcing for the clothes so I literally like all of them! If I could only choose one, I would say Everleigh Asymmetric Midi Dress is a piece that I knew I had to keep for myself the moment I tried it on!
Q: What would you tell someone who’s looking to start their own business?
A: Go for it and don’t look back! Never be afraid to try because you won’t know unless you try. There are many times when I felt like giving up and I believe there will still be those moments, but if you are truly passionate about what you do and you really want it badly enough, you will go through anything to achieve your dreams. When that day comes, it’ll all be worth it.
If you’re looking for affordably priced, bright and happy fashion pieces, here’s where you can find them!
