Based in Singapore, Eight Slate was founded by Savina Chai when she was only 21 years old. Freshly graduated from Temasek Polytechnic, this young upstart decided to start up her own fashion brand to pursue her personal passion as well as revive the then stagnant local retail industry. With Eight Slate, she had hoped to show that “a woman's personal style does not change. It is an attitude and a representation of her inner personality." Even until today, that value hasn’t changed.
