Reinventing the Cheongsam with Priscilla Shunmugam | SENATUS



Reinventing the Cheongsam with Priscilla Shunmugam
By SENATUS Magazine | 22 January 2013

Designer Priscilla Tsu-Jyen Shunmugam born in Kuala Lumpur of both Indian and Chinese parentage, founded the Ong Shunmugam label in 2010, naming it with a combination of both her parents’ surnames. The womenswear label thus started its humble quest of crafting beautiful clothing that focuses on the bespoke and sartorial construction of fabric. Putting a much-needed contemporary spin on traditional clothing such as the Cheongsam, Samfu, Sari and the Kebaya, Ong Shunmugam places great importance on the cut and the fit of the clothing, striving for longevity through its classic-inspired designs.
