We’re not just your average tailor shop. We offer a myriad of services aimed at making sure you achieve the exact look your pursuing. Here’s just a few of those services:

Speciality Expertise

Our specialties include traditional Chinese dresses (Qipao / Cheongsam), wedding gowns and Latin dance costumes.

Pre-made Items

We also carry pre-made wedding dresses, traditional Chinese dresses in store on sale for unbeatable prices.

Custom Tailoring

Love that outfit, but it doesn’t fit quite right? Our in-house tailoring and alterations services can be a great way to make some adjustments. That way, you can have the clothes you like, and feel comfortable in them.



We opened our doors back in 1997. Since that time, fashion has changed a lot – but our commitment to our customers has remained the same. We know the value of treating customers right, and are ready to help you find the fashion you’re looking for today.
