Jade was a freelance seamstress for several years before she started her first boutique at a tourist district well-known for tailoring services. It was difficult to make money out of the business then as the rent of the boutique was very high. In addition, most people of the time find it hard to accept cheongsams that can be bought off the rack, believing that made-to-measure cheongsams are of better quality.
Jade’s break came when she was invited to lease a boutique at a newly built shopping mall, at a much more affordable rent. After several years of hard work and perseverance, Jade is now collecting the fruits of her labour. The impeccable workmanship of the cheongsams at Jade Collection has earned the boutique a good reputation among both new and regular customers, which consisted mainly of working professionals, brides, bride maids and mothers of the brides. New customers are built on a regular basis as more people are becoming aware that the quality and fit of a ready-made cheongsam can be as good, if not better, than one that is custom-made.
In my opinion, cheongsams from Jade Collections are dreams come true for modern women who are looking for designs which retain the traditional edge and appeal in the ever changing fashion industry. For busy women who are particular about finding a cheongsam with a good fit but who simply does not have the time to meet a tailor, cheongsams from Jade Collections may provide the best alternative solution to a custom-made piece. As many of the embellishments on the cheongsams are painstakingly hand sewn, the designs come in very small quantity and are truly unique.
For those of you who have never worn a cheongsam before, you will be amazed by how beautiful, elegant and charming a well-made piece can make you look once you put it on. The silhouette of a well-fitted cheongsam is made to accentuate the best of your figure and to express your feminine side. Interestingly, woman of many shapes and sizes (including plus-size) can wear a cheongsam, as long as the size is right. Minor alterations may be necessary at times but it is definitely worth the time and effort for a more glamorous look.
