Charlye & Co. was born in June 2019 as Curlery Shop. It was an idea started by two good friends from junior college, Lihui and Phuong, after completed their International Baccalaureate Diploma. They were exploring different things to while waiting to matriculate into university and thought of creating an inspirational fashion brand that teaches young people to love themselves and empower them. That is when the two young adults created Curlery Shop as an Instagram Shop. The name "Curlery Shop" allude to Phuong's curly hair which she did not like as a child and sets a reminder to love ourselves.

(As of October 2019, Phuong has left for university in the USA and is no longer working on Charlye & Co. Regardless, our team at Charlye & Co is grateful for Phuong and her contributions. All the best Phuong!)

Charlye & Co. believes in the concept of self-love and creates a community where young women can showcase their talents. Hence, we launched our Charlye Ambassador (#Charlyefamily) initiative, where we showcase every day young girls in hopes of motivating young girls everywhere to embrace their strengths and flaws.
To inspire girls and women to pursue their dreams and aspirations, we also launched our "Girls Unite" series where we interview and share stories of inspiring women from different industries.
Giving back to the Community
Charlye & Co. believes in giving back to the local community. We regularly partner with local non-profit organisations to raise funds and awareness for their respective causes.
In January 2020, we launched a fundraising campaign to fight against the Australia Bushfire, where we donated our sales from our Charlye & Friends Mascot Drawing to World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF-Australia), NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc. (WIRES) and Australian Red Cross.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a trying time for all of us. During Mental Health Month, Charlye & Co. hope to bring awareness and create a safer space for people experiencing mental health issues, especially during COVID-19. Hence, Charlye & Co., together with 4 other businesses, worked with Silent Conditions to raise $2250 for Silver Ribbon Singapore. Silver Ribbon (Singapore) is a Non-Profit Mental Health Organisation which seeks to combat mental health stigma.

Charlye & Co. is still at the beginning of our journey. It is only because of the support from our supporters that has allowed us to make it this far. While the future can be uncertain, our team is excited about the future of Charlye & Co.
Charlye & Co. has potential to go far. I believe with the support of our customers and hardwork of our team, we will achieve greater things together. I hope that as Charlye & Co. grow, we can inspire and impact more people.
