Introducing our #galvanizeyourworld series, starting with fashion & beauty influencer Peony Lim. The English-Chinese beauty has become a reference for elevated street style. As well as her eponymous blog, she works as a social media consultant and luxury brand ambassador. We caught up with Peony on motherhood, her styling tips and the causes close to her heart.
How did you start your career?
Completely by chance, my uni was next to the BFC LFW showspace and I was photographed by street style photographers as I waited for my classes. By the time I graduated I had been on all the major websites and magazine sites and made friends with some of the photographers, they inspired me to start my own blog and within a month I had my first job. I never looked back.
What’s a cause that is important to you?
Racial awareness - being mixed race I have often felt like the other, so I feel strongly about educating racism out of existence.
Most rewarding aspect of your work?
Creative control and making a community.
What inspires your style?
What are the three things you can’t live without?
My husband, my baby and my dog.
Jumpsuit or dress?
Normally dress but I LOVE the Galvan jumpsuits.
What do you find the most challenging?
Admitting I am struggling.
What has motherhood taught you?
To live in the moment and be present.
What’s your ultimate styling advice?
If in doubt keep it classic but mostly make yourself happy.
What’s your mantra?
It's whats on the inside that matters and lasts.
