Hi, I'm Vivien.

I am a digital stylist who is passionate about living freedom life, in style.

I used to work in a 9-5 job I hate, always choose the 'safe path', always tries to please others, and never seek within my potentials.

Coming from a strict Asian family with high demands, I grew up with "I'm not good enough" mentality and suffered from deep depression in the past.

I got sick and tired of letting other people & circumstances control me, so I took action to change myself, starting with my style.

From there, I created an image of who I want to be, work myself towards it, and established my own fashion brand. I presented in various fashion shows in Florida & New York and collected incredible life experiences.

By transforming my style & myself, I began to choose things outside of my comfort zone and take on bigger challenges.

Since then, I've been traveling solo, attending conferences around the world and invest heavily on things I believe in.

I've traveled several different countries and often share my experience and recommendations in the FIS blog. Travel has loosen me up so I often encourage people to travel & experience more. It was a lot of silly mistakes that allows me learn to look at things with different perspective.

Your Life, Your Style

I am just a nerdy girl who is especially good at fashion design + styling (only thing I'm good at) and I'm here to share my (silly) stories with you.

Don't take life too seriously. The world is bigger than what was taught by our family and the school. Stay true to yourself and strive your life to live a Freedom Life, in Style.

All the naysayers can shut their front door.
