2021 - What went on this year!
It's the last few days of 2021, and we can't believe how time flies! It felt just like yesterday when the year just started and we were all so excited about the pandemic dying down! Unfortunately, the pandemic didn't, and is still ongoing at the moment. Nevertheless, when we go through adversity, we tend to emerge stronger! And we did! We managed 2021 really well - introduced new segments, new lines, new team members - and we must say, it has been a pretty delightful year! Let's go into the details now! (>‿◠)✌
For those of you who have been following us since the very beginning, or since covid started, you would have known that we hold our IG Live sessions every week where we do our try ons for that week's launch! Previously, we only had Audrey in our IG Live, and early this year we introduced Francesca too! And to thank you all for watching and supporting us every live, we now also try to include giveaways during the live to give back to you girls!
Because we are encouraged to stay home, we also produced more lounge lines that are comfortable and easy to wear during both cold and warm days! We are extremely thankful that the NM Community loves our lounge lines so much that we kept having new designs coming up (such as the Nina Mega Oppa Set) and also restocks in new colours for the older designs (Soraya Waffle Lounge Set)! We believe this love for the simple and comfortable designs will stay on for quite some time so we will try to make more basics in the coming year too! Do feel free to share with us any ideas you may have too!
Of course, we also have a series of designs that you girls absolutely love! There's our Enchanted Maxi Skirt that comes in a tiered, A-line design with an elastic band at the back. There's our Kylea Denim Shorts that went on so many rounds of backorders and also got produced in new colours. There's our Zona and Zoya basic tops which so many of you have added to your weekly rotation. And there is also the Lesley Joggers that got backorder-ed on the day of launch!
Happy to also share that we have launched our new NM Everyday Tote Bag that comes with a functional pocket on the outside for easy access of your trinkets or bus cards etc! It is certainly an upgrade from the previous reusable tote bag with its premium material and an embroidered Neonmello logo! It is an easy bag to carry around since you can just throw all your things inside and it is also an ideal bag for grocery shopping or when you head to the gym or spin classes!
Also, we have new additions to the team this year and they are none other than these three angels! They have brought fun, laughter, and joy to the team, and also performed well in their respective roles that provided great assistance to us especially during this peak season!
This year, we launched our first padded series: Camille Toga Top, Shelby Racer Top, and Beverly U-shaped Top! We understand that there may be days where we would prefer to go bra-less but still properly covered up, so we created these padded series to make things simpler for you! The great news is the padded tops series has been such a huge hit with you girls that we have them made in new colours! We are also launching more padded designs in the coming year - think padded dresses and so on!
Team NM has officially joined the Gen Z and created a Tiktok Account! ≧◠‿◠≦✌ This platform will be all the fun stuff! You will be able to see upcoming sneaks, styling videos, and all the funny behind-the-scenes video amidst others! Of course, feel free to let us know the content that you like so we can make them for you! You can also follow us here!
We added a new segment that involves you girls, and that is none other than the NM GURLS Try On Sessions! We took your opinions about including a variety of sizes in our try on and included sizes from XS to L, hoping to provide you girls with a more realistic reference point when selecting your own size!
Last but not least, we also got a new studio space, did it up a little to create a cosy little space with a few different themes from victorian style to basic arches, and a geometry space! You should have already seen some of the spots from our weekly try-on sessions and our Instagram images! We will be changing things up every now and then too! Watch this space!! (づ｡◕‿‿◕｡)づ
