After receiving her Bachelors in Fashion and Marketing from NAFA, Ms Jolene Ang worked as a fashion marketing executive in a local fashion brand. Her duties included devising and managing ways to market fashion products and overseeing photo shoots.
However, after working for 4 years, she felt that it was time for a change. She wanted to go back to designing apparel, wedding gowns to be exact. After roping in 3 other friends (a wedding photographer, fashion consultant and fashion entrepreneur), she decided to take a leap of faith and open her very own bridal boutique.
Before doing so, the 4 of them sat down to discuss what was required moving forward. This was where they identified issues such as the lack of manpower (administrative and service staff). In addition, they also lacked professionals (wedding photographers, makeup artists, wedding planners and video editors). They also saw the importance of promotional and advertising costs in creating brand awareness and in the process, driving sales.
Thus, they spend a few months planning and getting their business proposals up. After which, they sought financial help from SBL Singapore. With the proper funding from SBL Singapore, Ms Ang and her four friends are now the proud owners of wedding studio Reflections In Time.
