The Caelum Greene founder on her store, her style, and finding balance
Charlotte Tsuei is the creative force behind Caelum Greene, an activewear and lifestyle store with a feel-good mission. The store – which has just launched its online shopping platform to complement its retail store in Pacific Place – emphasises eco-conscious fabrics, alongside brands that support their communities.

Before launching her own brand, she worked for yoga apparel brand Zobha, as a merchandiser at Christian Louboutin, and she oversaw all retail across the Asia-Pacific at Pure International.
