Meet Jamie Chua.

Apart from being one of Singapore’s richest entrepreneurs, Jamie is best known worldwide as the woman with one of the largest collections of Hermès Birkin and Kelly bags.


She is said to own more than 200 Hermès bags; she had to refurbish her closet to accommodate her growing collection.


Jaime was a former flight attendant who hustled her way up to become one of Singapore’s richest social media influencers.

She is the founder of Singaporean beauty brand Luminous1, and also a mother to Cleveland, 23, and Callista, 19.


Last July 2016, she gave her social media followers a virtual tour of her spacious walk-in closet on her YouTube channel.

In an interview with designer handbag enthusiast PurseBop, Jamie revealed that her love for Hermès began more than 15 years ago.


“For me, it wasn’t about what it symbolized but truly how user-friendly Hermès bags were," she said.


“Even until today, I still find that the B or the K suits my lifestyle the best.

“They fit the stuff I need for a day, and it’s really easy to find my things in them!”

Her very first Hermès was a “Blue Jean [Togo Birkin 30cm] bag with white stitches,” which could retail up to $22,775 or P1.1 million online.


What are her favorites from her famous collection?

The 44-year-old beauty  mogul said, “The Himalayan Birkin and Kelly are my top holy grail bags if I had to pick!”

As seen in the video, Jamie owns three styles of the Himalayan line.

Last June, it was reported that a matte white Himalaya Niloticus Crocodile Diamond Birkin was auctioned off for a record-breaking $379,261 or P18.8 million.

Apart from her massive designer bag collection, Jaime also takes pride in her equally-massive designer shoes collection because it's also her “weakness.”
