Tan Yoong

Owner and Designer
Tan Yoong


Recognised by his peers and loyal clientele as Singapore's premier fashion designer for the last two decades, Mr Tan Yoong continues to surprise women with his couture-inspired fashion designs, turning his many clients from looking girl-next-door to feeling glamourous and fabulous.

Trained in fine arts, his first love was painting. His passion for fashion design was only realised and developed after winning a string of creative awards, both in Singapore and abroad in Tokyo, Japan, while working as an art director in an international advertising agency.

Mr Tan is at the top of his game by being uniquely inventive. As a fashion wizard, he conjures elements of fantasy and surrealism in all of his designs. His premium-priced limited edition ready-to-wear pieces, custom-made cocktail dresses, and exclusive eveningwear rival those of the world's top designer labels.
