Through history, the cheongsam has been a picture of elegance and beauty for females, and is an essential part of Chinese culture. While it is not a fashion piece we would wear daily now, the modern take on traditional cheongsams remains attractive and a great option for work functions and events.
But cheongsam making is no simple task and it takes a skilled seamstress to make one good cheongsam, much less modify it. So where can one find a cheongsams to stand elegantly out during functions?
SHI Couture, situated along Pickering Street by China Square in the CBD area, is one good place to find one. There's a great variety of fabrics and designs to select from: Sleeveless or not? Simply a top or a dress? Plain colours or prints? The traditional cut or halter? With the wide range, there is surely one for you. Pick out a piece and match it with a simple shawl, and you are all ready for any occasion! Shi
