Green Circle: Meet Camira Asrori

Updated: Oct 14, 2020

Study hard! Don’t quit school! Pursue your passion. It will be hard but one day it’ll be worth it  — Camira



Hi Camira, Tell us more about yourself.

Camira: I’m a fashion KOL, fashion stylist & designer behind CAMIRA ASRORI. I have an obsession with statement earrings haha.

Tell us more about your label, CAMIRA ASRORI C: CAMIRA ASRORI started off as a resort-wear label but has now evolved into an everyday resort-wear inspired label. I started the brand because I wanted to encourage women to wear colours and prints!


What were some challenges faced building a brand and are there any ethical practices enforced? C: Too many challenges haha! One of the biggest challenges is definitely hiring a core team, finding the right people that lives, breathes and believes in the brand like me.


We work with a family-run factory and all materials, resources and manpower are based in Guangzhou. That minimises our carbon footprint. We participated in the #WHOMADEMYCLOTHES campaign by Fashion Revolution in 2019 to show what goes on behind our clothing.

We use leftover fabrics in the factory to make our samples before we finalise the design so that we do not waste new resources. For our Cruise 19 collection, the whole collection was made from the leftover fabric from one of our design in Cruise 18. We mix and match it with existing plain fabrics we have lying around in the factory.


We try our best to be sustainable but it’s still a journey for us :)



That's great commitment to be sustainably conscious as a brand label. Kudos to you and Team CAMIRA ASRORI!


Now share with us,

you've attended our swap parties before, so what do you enjoy most about swapping?

C: The excitement of finding a gem amongst the racks! The feeling of not knowing what you’ll find that day.





What is one poor habit you've swapped out from your life for something better?

C: Over-spending. I used to buy one item in a few different colours, or a few pairs of shoes at the same time. Now I only buy pieces that I will wear in a long time.



Spill the beans! How do you always look so healthy and glowing?


C: Haha! I wish! There are days I don’t but they’re just not on IG 😝 But being happy with what you do helps.




What is one advice you will tell your 18 year old self?

C: Study hard! Don’t quit school! Pursue your passion. It will be hard but one day it’ll be worth it (I still tell the last one to myself up till today haha).

We get it. It can be confusing when you first start swapping!  We're here to answer all your questions and support your journey in any way we can.

How does Swapaholic Work?


Here's how it works :) 1. SWAP IN items from your closet and pay a service fee
2. EARN points for each of your items
3. SWAP OUT items from the Shop or Online using your points! Details on the Online Plans: www.swapaholic.com

Where is the Swap Shop?


Our Swap Shop is at 04-07 Orchard Central. We can't wait to see you there!




Why do I pay a registration/service fee?


Swapaholic provides a valuable service. We are THE swap with standards which means we ensure the Swapaholic experience is nothing short of delightful. By performing thorough quality checks, our Swapaholic Police ensure items are in perfect condition. To take it one step further, we sort all items and set up our events like a pop-up shops, much like any great retail experience. And as the cherry on the top, we provide surprises for our customers in every swap! As you can see it’s hard work and requires extensive resources. We make your nominal registration or service fee go a long way ! We hope you experience and appreciate our team’s dedicated efforts in going that extra mile.
