Our Story

First thing's first - thank you for taking time out of your precious day to stop by. My name is Minh Nguyen and I am the founder of Golden Hour, your everyday silk essentials company.
As a small business owner, every website visit, every Instagram follow, every purchase and every referral to a friend - it means the absolute world to me. If you were to ask me 5 years ago if one day I'd run my own business (let alone one that started in a middle of a pandemic), I'd probably laugh and say 'hopefully one day'. 
Truly, for as long as I can remember the idea of having something that I'm proud to call my own was a pipe dream - always a lingering thought but realistically, seemed so far away.  An exciting fantasy that I'd daydream about but was too preoccupied climbing the corporate retail ladder as a Lifestyle Buyer.  A job I loved but I'm fortunate enough to still do what I was professionally trained to do over 9 years, but now in a different capacity! 
I believe in both hard work and serendipity, the process of making happy discoveries along the road of life. Unexpected events and experiences occur in one's journey and when acted upon, it can help you achieve your goals even faster.  When you combine this with a dream and ambition, magic can happen.
As we continue to navigate through this pandemic, it's more important than ever to count your blessings and appreciate the silver linings - mine was the opportunity to offer silk masks to help make the transition to this new normal of ours a little bit more comfortable for those around me (and if this new norm is going to stick around for awhile, might as well help you look good while doing it).
Fast forward one year and I'm feeling beyond grateful for what you and your SUPPORT has enabled me to do - including launching our brand in over 40 retail stores, expanding our product lines and most importantly, gave us the confidence to continue our quest to become your favourite silk essentials company on a mission to add a little bit of luxury to your everyday life. 
Once again, I'm honoured to have you here today - whether you're an existing customer or a curious shopper who is learning about all the incredible benefits of silk, thank you.
