Get to know the stylish sisters representing the Singapore-based sustainable fashion brand
Ever wondered what it is like to be a brand ambassador?
They're fun, energetic and a breath of fresh air. Get to know Gen Woo's newest brand ambassadors, twelve-year-old George and ten-year-old Verne Tey. Like Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid—these model sisters are keeping fashion in the family.
From their first catalogue shoot to representing the brand for their 2024 collection, we caught up with George and Verne to discuss fun facts, fashion and the Singapore fashion industry.
Please introduce yourself and explain your journey into the Singapore Fashion Industry.
George: Hi, I'm George. We're new to the industry, and we were introduced to the Singapore Fashion Industry by friends.
Verne: Hi, I am Verne. I have been told I am quirky, energetic, and always up for a challenge. I am still new to the Singapore Fashion Industry.
How did you become a Gen Woo brand ambassador?
G: My sister and I did a campaign shoot for Gen Woo in 2022, so now we're back working together to promote the comfortable clothing brand.
V: I did a modelling stint in 2022 for both catalogue and campaign and thoroughly enjoyed my time. I'm back and ready to have more fun with the new collection.
What brands have you modelled or filmed for, and what is your favourite shoot to date and why?
G: I'm still new to the fashion industry and have only worked with an Australian brand, Happy Hair Brush and Gen Woo designs. Gen Woo gave me the opportunity to do a campaign, and I must say I did enjoy the work.
V: I would say I'm still new to the modelling industry. I have recently modelled for IKEA Singapore, Happy Hair Brush and Gen Woo designs. My favourite shoot to date would be the campaign shoot with Gen Woo Designs because it had a casual setting with music. It was with my sister, and I also made some new friends during work.
If you could describe your style, what would it be?
V: I don't have a particular style and dress according to my feelings. I think I am experimental and might throw together different styles.
Do you have any style icons?
V: I don't have any style icons just yet. Still, I relate to Momona Tamada's character in Netflix's The Babysitter's Club and Claudia Kishi and Alaya High's character from That Girl Lay Lay.
Where do you like shopping, and do you have a favourite brand?
G: I used to get a lot of my clothes from Zara. However, I'm now on a hunt for clothes that fit my changing body shape, so Mum and I have been going through the racks of Zara, Cotton On, Mango, Rip Curl, and H&M.
V: I love shopping and especially enjoy trying on all sorts of clothes and styles in the fitting room. We sometimes have a mini photoshoot in the fitting room where I put together some clothes from the rack, and my mother plays a photographer. Currently, the brand that fills my cabinet most is Zara.
What is your favourite Gen Woo design?
G: I like Gen Woo's YK2 Collegiate line, where the designs are more comfortable and more styled towards an older audience. One thing that stands out with Gen Woo Designs is the quality of the material used in all collections.
V: This might be unusual, but I love Gen Woo's pyjama collection. Have you touched their fabric? It's so soft and comfortable, I could spend the whole day in pyjamas.
Tell us one fun fact about yourself.
G: I can flip my thumb backwards over my index finger.
V: I can tell you the plot and ending of a movie after watching ¼ of it.
