After about seven years of designing and sewing clothes for various people with the help of apprentices, Nora registered her business in March 1980.

This business is now a limited liability company known as "Sleek Fashion Limited"; Prior to that Nora had already established a design school and a workshop from which uniforms were made for the former Dimples Inn and custom designs for customers from all walks of life.
