Q&A with Gong Yehua and Chung MinTzu of The Prestigious

However, the art of tailoring is never lost. One such story is The Prestigious, Bespoke tailoring in Singapore who saw their initial 3 cohorts of Apprentices to be all female.

THE STRAITS TIMES

LIFE INTERVIEW WITH TAILOR THOMAS WONG:TRUE MASTER OF THE CRAFT

Master tailor Thomas Wong is carefully tracing a razor-sharp pair of scissors around some indigo suit fabric at his atelier on the third floor of a shophouse along Boat Quay.

The 69-year-old’s deft fingers barely rest in between all the snipping, marking and measuring required for a suit jacket to take shape.

Despite the constant clicking of the camera shutter and the prying eyes of this journalist, he continues his work with a singular focus – the sort of concentration that invariably sets apart masters from mere tailors.
