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.”
