Rachel Lim Built A Multi-billion-dollar Fashion Empire

Starting a business is not at all easy. It is all about taking the risk as it needs a lot of investment and hard work. Rachel Lim, the co-founder of fashion label love Bonito raised the multi-billion dollar fashion empire using her mom’s life savings. To start her venture, she even had quit her college to pursue her life dream which she fulfilled.

She faced a lot of struggle during her college days along with her sisters

When Lim was 21-years old she was juggling with her school and was also running her blog shop with her sisters Viola and Velda Tan at that time. Though she was doing well both ways, she decided to settle for the one for which she was most passionate about. The blog shop named ‘BonitoChico’ and it was a blog shop that sold imported items of clothing for women.

Lima and her sisters did this to gather more pocket money. When they started in 2005, online retail was just gaining ground in Southeast Asia. It was however embraced with a positive turnout as consumers gained access to technology.

She has used her mom’s life savings to build her fashion empire

Lim was bonded by the government as she had to pay off the five-figure fee for stopping her school for starting the business. At that time, she had not that much money with her and she had to turn to her mom at the most difficult time. Her mother was also working to take care of her family as her father’s shipbroking business was affected by the Asian Financial crisis of 1997. After that Kim acquired the loan which is her mother’s life-saving. She made up her mind and stayed determined to achieve something positive without failing at any step.

She started her blog shop and sell pre-loved clothes earlier

She then started a blog shop along with her friends where she used to sell pre-loved clothes they didn’t wear much, which was later rebranded in 2010 as Love Bonito which is now a multi-million-dollar fashion empire. Love Bonito sells only tailored clothes for Asian shoppers.

She was inspired to sell tailored clothes for Asian women with small body sizes and kinder cuts from her experience as an online seller of imported clothes on her blog shop. Her main focus was European and American women as their body proportions were solely put into consideration, their climate, preferences and skin tone were also considered. This led her to build a multi-billion dollar empire. She also got on the Forbes list of Under 30s in Asia, made her meet dignitaries like the Prime minister of Singapore Lee Hsien Loong to discuss her passion which brought Lim to the limelight.

Her mother did not have hope in the beginning

Lim stated that her mother was quite ensured at the beginning and she had the fear that the government would come after her daughter because her online retail at that time was not legal. “But, in the end, she decided to leap of faith,” Lim stated.

I have touched many lives in the last two years after I decided to become a freelance writer. Sharing a story is sharing a part of life and making your life bigger. Thus I became a writer and have become a better person as I also get parts of others lives and we all grow together as a community, through the enticing writings.

Vegan Leather Out Of Cactus Plant

In a bid to reduce waste and rely on sustainable fashion, many companies nowadays are coming up with unique inventions to produce environment-friendly products. The best part is no animals are harmed to produce those products for the sake of our benefit. Taking this mission forward, two young men entrepreneurs from Mexico have created an alternative to leather, the first of its kind. Two men i.e. Adrián López Velarde and Marte Cázares have recently launched Desserto, an organic alternative to produce leather out of the cactus plant.

And yes, this vegan leather is aesthetically pleasing as it looks similar to the leather which is made out of animals. Thanks to these men to bringing an end to the animal cruelty.

After finishing their studies and entering employment, Adrián López Velarde and Marte Cázarez found themselves becoming more concerned about the environment around them. To do something unique and meaningful, both of them have decided to quit their job and work toward their mutual goal. To let you know, López Velarde worked in the furniture and automotive sector and Cázarez in the fashion industry. They both have decided to put their energy into making an impact in the fashion world and to come up with something very unique.

Now, you must be thinking how did this idea come to them? In an interview with Fashion United, the founders have explained their idea. They said, “The idea of using this raw material was conceived because this plant does not need any water to grow, and there is plenty of it throughout the Mexican Republic,”. “Also, symbolically, it represents all of us Mexicans and everybody knows it.”

What are the specialties of this vegan leather?

The fake leather, Desserto is up to 50% biodegradable and organic. It is free of toxic chemicals, phthalates, and PVC. It is also very flexible and breathable.

Road ahead

Now after launching Desserto, the duo is planning to produce at least 200,000 linear meters of their vegan leather by 2020.

Bottom Line

Well, I think this is a pretty good innovation introduced to meet the requirements of the fashion industry. The most important thing is no animals are being harmed or killed to produce this vegan leather as the leather is made up entirely out of the cactus plant.
