"MY FASCINATION WITH altering and perfecting dresses began at the age of 10"

I am a multi-award-winning fashion designer that specializes in bridal alterations. I started sewing my own primary school uniform when I was only 10 years old. Later, I went on to get my formal education in dressmaking and designing in institutes in Malaysia, Singapore, and further advancement in London, Paris, and Milan.

Besides bridal dresses, I’ve created pageant gowns and boosted their scoring points to be placed in the top 5 and many of them had captured queen titles both on the state and national level.
