Bina Maniar-Goh and Sharon FooCo-Founders, Quintessential
I joined TaFF when I was about a year into my business and I can’t emphasize enough how nice it is to be part of a network of local designers just like myself. Help and support is so important when you’re building your business. There are workshops and networking sessions you can attend and one thing I truly appreciate is being kept up to date with the newsletters that TaFF prepares.
Sheryl LimFounder, SUSY + BAE
Being a TaFF member has helped our business in many ways. It was fantastic to be a part of Boutiques Edit, which was a valuable opportunity for our brand to interact directly with our customers. We also appreciated being invited to participate in TaFF Trunks: Men’s Edition, which included an influencer photo shoot. The brand exposure from these events have been really helpful for a small brand like ours. We’ve also appreciated the knowledge sharing from TaFF, such as its seminar on competitive pricing, and among its community of local brands.
