CNY Picks: Ong Shunmugam Cheongsuits

Just in time for Chinese New Year, local designer Ong Shunmugam has invented the “cheongsuit” (the traditional cheongsam in playsuit!). Named “The Mei Hwei”, the cheongsuit is a thigh length cheongsam playsuit with a short mandarin collar, short set-in sleeves and double-pleated Jamaica length shorts. It has a self-fabric belt, side pockets in shorts, outward cuff at hems of shorts and a concealed zip fastening at the back.

Ong Shunmugam is known for experimenting traditional styles with a modern twist and she has definitely set a new benchmark with this quirky, on-trend piece! I really love the idea of combining the two together and it’s such a perfect outfit for Chinese New Year.

“The Mei Hwei” is exclusively available at Atelier Ong Shunmugam 16 Raffles Quay B1-36 Hong Leong Building. Already in store now, call +65 6223 4804 or email for more information!
