Jaja Anuar, 34 | Fashion Buyer
When it comes to fashion, one thing’s for sure, Afiza (or better known as Jaja) has an eye for clothes like no other; thanks to her job! Her position as the fashion buyer for FashionValet allows her to have an insight of what’s in and out of season.
With so many meetings to attend every day, Jaja credits her busy schedule for pushing her to dress her best. Describing her go-to style, Jaja says that “Layering is the way to go. I love the idea of throwing on an eye-catching top over a plain T-shirt – it’s an easy way to uplift any outfit!” At the moment she is in love with oversized outerwear trend, often wearing it off-shoulder or over a top. For style ideas, Jaja turns to fashion blogs such as WhoWhatWear and Filipino fashionista Liz Uy (who nails the layering game), but if she could raid a celeb’s wardrobe, Victoria Beckham will be her go-to, thanks to her timeless style.
An interesting fact: Jaja has a twin sister who works at FashionValet too! Jaja and her sister believe that the hijabista industry still has a lot of room to grow. Some of her favourite local designers’ at the moment include Mimpikita, Nelissa Hilman and Umma. Speaking about the most rewarding parts of her job, she admits that getting t be the first person to see some designers’ sketches for an upcoming collection definitely takes the cake. With her driven personality, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for her next.
