The young mother started her road to success early in her life. After her pregnancy, she explored various styles that would complement her figure. From then on, she designed her own clothes which led to her realization— her love for fashion. 

Entering university, Patty opted to study business. But as time went on, Patty Ang took the opportunity to take short courses at Central Saint Martins while managing her growing brand at that time.

As time went on, Patty Ang became known for her achievements as a fashion designer and her optimistic view in life. But alongside her achievements, she takes note of the challenges she has surpassed and the ones she is still encountering. 

“Until now, there’s still so many challenges but one that I still struggle with not having my own time. From being a mother, a wife, and a designer— I’m still learning how to have time for myself.”

Despite the challenges she went through, she recalls the milestones and realizations in her career. She remains grounded despite the glamour, recognizing that behind the curtain of all the glitz, that is where grit and determination sits.
