Jasmine Tuan

Together with Quincy Teofisto, Jasmine Tuan owns and manages a shop called Blackmarket which carries local and regional brands.

When considering the challenges of competition with international labels faced by Blackmarket, Jasmine feels that she needs to constantly search for, recognise and expose emerging designers to the local market. She would like to align their promotion along the lines of international brands. Blackmarket has been operating for three years and Jasmine feels blessed by the positive and encouraging response from the local market. The business has a good following who believe in the Blackmarket’s mission to enhance local and regional talent. That the target audience is receptive to new ideas, newcomers and all things against the norm makes the daily challenges sweeter for Blackmarket.
