The Star's Life Inspired magazine is now brighter, better, and more energised with an all-new look. From horology to fine dining, we bring you the latest on luxury and lifestyle after the second Sunday of the month.

May Tan, the creative force behind the fashion label Maarimaia, shares her philosophy of design in this issue. For the coming Lunar New Year, Tan was inspired to create a modern take on the traditional qipao, making it relevant to these contemporary times. Read about her observations on the growing trend among her customers and how the qipao may just be in style again.

Describing her brand as "super slow" fashion, the Malaysian designer explains why the process of creating her collection cannot be rushed. Tan shares her experience in launching her brand as an online brand and the panic that set in when sales was poor then, making her realise that setting up an online brand was tougher than she imagined.

During the pandemic, she recalls the challenges she faced and the big risk that she took at that time. Tan also talks about the exciting expansion plans that she has in store for her brand.
