Women’s Fashion (Made-to-measure)
Where menswear relies on a relatively staid DNA, womenswear is occasion for the imagination to take flight.
Nowhere is this more true than in the hallowed space of couture. Expedience is no impediment; excess is expected, and the imagination, only limited by mastery of craft. Adds Chen Kah Lee of Heng Nam Nam, which has represented Singapore in couture competitions, “Good tailoring means creating an outfit that has a second skin effect, thus the client can function at their best in it. So fit is primary; style that suits the client is essential, and the finishing has to be impeccable.”
“When purchasing an evening gown, quality of the fabric and workmanship, as well as attention to detail are important. At the end of the day, you must look and feel comfortable – a gown should highlight the wearer's beauty.”
