The collection is called “Not Your Average Beauty” and focuses on the face as a pivotal point of beauty. Tan explained that plastic surgery for the nose is most common, which was why she focused on that area for her art.
Tan talked about how she discovered her passion for jewelry design and craftsmanship while studying at Central Saint Martins in London, England. She had studied in science before relocating to London at the age of 17 to study art. Her science studies have proven to be an aesthetic tool when designing.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
