About me

Welcome to my profile, my name is Kanéda H Sylvester-Vuong. I originate from Vietnam, China & Grenada and was born & raised in London. Growing up with neither parents physically around, nor adults or role models that I aspired to be like, I naturally took things into my own hands & took charge of my own career from an extremely young age. Inevitably, I became excessively independent and a highly mature individual. Although, actions will always speak louder than words. Continue reading to see if you can sense the above characteristics through my achievements. My passion for fashion began when I was 8 years old & was told to design my own bridesmaid dress for my auntie's wedding (although I never got to attend, therefore not have a reason for it to be made). Being given that project to submit opened to my mind to countless opportunities, I realised that I was able to draw, I had a great eye for attention and loved the idea of clothing and designing it. Progressing into secondary school I met more characters and through commonly making friends & trying out new things, I discovered that I had a steady hand for makeup & completing beauty treatments like lash extensions. I began to sell strip lashes at school & complete fashion & beauty makeovers for music video's on my weekends & evenings. As most girls do, I love to shop. With my combined interests I began to style, shop and complete makeovers for clients as much as I possibly could after leaving school. Having lived with my grandma & had no financial support I dropped out of college after four months (studying: Business, Geography & Philosophy) & got a job as a Tenancy Manager in a Real Estate company whilst still completing my fashion tasks on the side. At 18 years old I moved out & moved into my own flat, with the flexibility to work when & where ever I need too. I currently have three businesses, one in lash extensions, one in personal styling & shopping, and one in makeup artistry. Business is growing, enough for me to support myself financially. I am now looking for work within the fashion industry to give me stability and a more corporate view of the industry as a whole.
