About Us

My mother grew up sitting by my Popo’s (grandmother) feet, as Popo tailormade qipaos for wealthy women in 1960s Singapore. While Popo hand cut and sewed luxurious fabrics into traditional cheongsams and samfus (blouse and pants sets), my mother collected the fabric scraps to turn into miniature dresses for her dolls. My mother learned how to choose fabrics, draw up and cut out panels of fabrics, and sew them into finished pieces by watching my Popo work over the years.


In 2004, she carried on my Popo’s legacy by launching Cloth.ier, Singapore’s first cheongsam boutique. Cloth.ier is inspired by the beauty and elegance of traditional Chinese fashion, reinterpreted for the modern woman. Our pieces are designed to be both timeless and contemporary, with a focus on high-quality fabrics, intricate details, and a perfect fit. Our dresses feature intricate details and patterns, inspired by the ornate designs of traditional Chinese attire. From delicate embroidery to bold, colorful prints, each piece in our collection is a true work of art.
