“Sirena” means mermaid in Tagalog. I can’t speak for all girls but I grew up reading stories about princesses, mermaids and dashing knights coming to the rescue. When I started Love, Mei, I met too many little girls who didn’t have a golden childhood like mine. So I tell stories to these girls and we create characters together. I know they don’t believe in mermaids at their age but they enjoy the stories because I’m giving them something they never really had, which was the opportunity to be someone’s little sister, someone to tell stories to. This dress reminds me of that special connection and that no matter what, we are always someone’s little girl.
