Anni is always looking forward, toward her next creative project. "It gets me pumped up. I feel an adrenaline rush. And at the end of the project, looking at the results, it always makes me feel really happy, like all the hustle was worth it."
But while enjoying some much deserved time off, she works on embroidering her Gap 1969 denim jacket, giving this statement piece an individuality which, quite literally, speaks all about her.
"Being able to find my calling in life – a route that takes me on a creative journey and allows me to use my art skills – that helps me grow into the person that I want to be."
When it comes to denim, Malaysian TV host and radio announcer Oh Zooey gets inspired by street style. Browsing the photos from fashion weeks' streets styles, she loves seeing the denim pieces people wear in real life because "denim is one of the most versatile materials out there".
Part of her denim obsession is based on how even simple staple pieces can dress up a look: "I am in love with my Gap denim shirt jacket because I can instantly transform myself just by pairing it with some jeans. It immediately gives me a cool girl vibe, even on a lazy throw-on-some-clothes day."
"My personal style is a lot about looking sleek, stylish and comfortable," says Anni Tai, a calligraphy designer and artist. "I like people to just be themselves; to wear garments rather than have garments wear them."
Pairing the white eyelet victorian top with a pair of Original 1969 best girlfriend shorts, she gets exactly the look she wants: down to earth and unpretentious.
TV host and radio announcer Oh Zooey gives off a tough chick vibe, but beneath it all, she values comfort the most. "Gap has always been a very relaxed and casual brand to me. So I feel it fits perfectly into my wardrobe."
When Zooey is not busy on TV or live on radio, she likes to start the day by choosing a key piece that she wants to wear and styling around that. "I start off with one piece of clothing I want to wear for the day and build my outfit from there. It actually all depends on the vibe I'm going for that day." For a casual afternoon spent at a local café with friends, she pairs a 1969 denim wrap dress with leather shoes to show a softer vibe; a more feminine side.
Illustrator Hsulynn Pang spends a day working in her studio wearing her Gap tropical sweatshirt dress. The pockets on the dress inspired her to create mini figures like the characters in Hans Christian Andersen's Thumbelina.
Malaysian illustrator Hsulynn Pang spends a day at her home studio painting watercolour prints. The meaning of these springtime illustrations is that "it's time to throw fear out of your mind and go after the dream that's been in your heart."
She loves pairing basics like her Gap resolution denim with cool accessories.
