Ong Shunmugam is a contemporary womenswear label with a simple quest to craft beautiful clothes by focusing on sartorial construction instead of fast fashion; on cut and fit before look; on longevity over excess.
Designed and made across Asia, our atelier often reworks familiar influences, weaving traditional textile techniques, colours and silhouettes into the modern wardrobe, while deliberately disregarding stereotypes and caricatures.
Ours are conceptual collections for the thoughtful dresser. We employ intuition and an exacting aesthetic, and we believe that clothing should be cerebral yet wearable.
In December 2010, Ong Shunmugam launched with its first ready-to-wear collection Orientalism and in September 2011, debuted Guardianship, its first cheongsam collection.
