Singapore Blog Awards: One-on-One with Montrose Desires
Montrose Desires is one of the finalist in the Singapore Blog Awards 2012. Established and owned by Sharon, a huge lover of fashion, and Mark, a website expert/creator, Montrose Desires has made its name in Singapore blog shop industry.
What’s With the Name?
Sharon and Mark chose the name Montrose Desires together. Montrose (mom-roz) is inspired by an author and Desires is inspired by you and me because basically, we all have our own desires! A unique yet perfect match for a fashion blog name!
Montrose Desires First Challenges
When we asked Montrose Desires about the difficulties in having a blog shop, this is their response:
“It has to come up with the entire website, to the layout, writing the terms and conditions, and realising there were so many other things we may not have thought of…
Finding models to showcase our items were not easy. We’re glad that we have finally spun off from that stage and everything is in place. We are always improving whenever we have feedback or critics.
It really helps that customers provide feedbacks and only then, we can make ourselves better.”
Montrose Desires‘ Fashion Statement
Sophistication is Montrose Desire’s primary style. Be it a “body-contour dress that hugs beautifully on one’s figure to a lacey piece embellished with bows and crystals”, Montrose Desires makes it sure that they protray a high-street style fashion at a reasonable price.
Montrose Desire’s fashion sense always comes with a theme in mind. This summer, they are having Montrose Splendid Summer with a previous collection, Montrose Bombshell. With the title alone, the viewers can picture a great idea on their minds.
Nomination in Singapore Blog Awards
According to BlogShopBuzz’s interview, Montrose Desire was actually nominated by someone (a satisfied customer perhaps!) in Singapore Blog shop Awards. That is when they finally know about such event and they were convinced to join and strive to be one of the finalists. Now that they finally made it, happiness overwhelms them.
When they were asked about the best asset that a blog should have to be part of Singapore’s favorite, they insisted on quality customer service.
“Even if the shop sells super quality and pretty pieces but lacks customer service, a customer will not repeat his/her purchase should they experience poor customer service. Of course, having a site that have plenty of styles to choose from, is easy to navigate and having a great system for payment helps.”
Montrose Desires Looks Forward
