Last week, I did the PR and hosted the launch of Rent A Dress – a new startup business by solo female entrepreneur Shuen.

A lot of people asked whether i’m old friends with Shuen but i just met her face-to-face a few months ago! She randomly emailed me sometime last year saying she’s a blog reader of mine and asking what i thought about this idea she had – which was to rent out designer gowns and cocktail dresses to girls in Malaysia – and i gave her my honest opinion on how i thought it was a great idea and that she should go for it!

Four or five months later, she emails me again saying she’s been working on it and plans to launch soon and i was like, “Wow you’ve been working hard! Good girl!” We ended up sharing resources to save cost for both our start ups, and i was very happy to be involved with her launch in Publika last week :)
