She also oversees community building, content creation and customer service – areas that elevate the brand notches above the rest.

The brand remains the leading fashion label in Asia, designed specifically for modern Asian women, and has grown beyond Singapore to Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Hong Kong and Australia.

In line with Love, Bonito’s mission to create a safe space for women to discover, embrace and be the best version of themselves, Rachel works to further touch and impact the community they have created. Rachel was honoured by Forbes as Asia’s 30 under 30 in 2016.
