Here’s a designer who’s creating a stir in the local fashion scene in her own terms by challenging fashion norms.
Beverly Bee Ang, 34
Brand Owner and Fashion Designer of Bev C
Beverly Bee, the fashion designer behind the label Bev C with the slogan, Own Your Style or Stay Naked, has been making big waves in the local fashion scene with her eclectic style and designs. She is breaking gender norms with her designs that include a mix of feminine and masculine cuts.
Beverly finds her inspiration through music, films, and travels; she loves searching for vintage clothing and accessories while mixing it with trendier pieces – her wardrobe essentials include a selection of lacy lingerie and structured outerwear. It wasn’t easy for Beverly to pick a single fashion icon as she finds inspiration from a number of designers, but if she would have to choose, it would be Vivienne Westwood. “Although Vivienne is now 76 years old, admire her passion for her career as well as her contribution to fashion,” she says.
Having started her career in the beauty industry as a hairstylist and makeup artist, Beverly has come a long way. She’s had 10 years of experience in the world of fashion – from her first clothing shop, The Girl Next Door, to her own label and store, Bev C’afé in Johor Bahru (that also doubles up as a cafe!). She cites the opening of Bev C in Harajuku, Japan as her biggest achievement so far. She’s also proud of the opening of the second outlet of her café. Beverly credits her dad for giving her the advice to follow her dreams and do what she loves most.
