Who are we.

Based in both Singapore and London, Of Trying Times draws inspiration from the anxiety of being in one’s twenties. 

The brand creates wearables by hand as its medium for story-telling, connecting with individuals through the shared experience of our twenties.

Despite its seemingly depressing name, Of Trying Times is not about lamenting hard times and tough situations. Rather, it seeks to redirect negative energy from bad days into creation, picking one-self up after each setback. 

The Singaporean designer takes inspiration from her own experiences as a twenty-something. Browsing through the collection of items at Of Trying Times is akin to taking a peek into her diary, with each collection revealing a different chapter of her life and her anxiety of being a twenty something.
