I knew that Emerald Brilliant has a variety of readymade qipaos available for trying for one like my mom who has difficulty finding the right cutting for her stature and body type. It was such an enriching experience for her because she never thought that she could look good in qipao and yet the first one that she tried was the one that she couldn't put down. We also customade another qipao on top of the one she tried off the shelf. So in total we bought 2 qipaos. My mom in law also bought a qipao from the outlet in One Utama.
This is a place I will recommend for those who are :
(1) short of time - there are many readymade ones available for purchase and customade qipaos takes about 2 weeks only.
(2) unsure of their own body type - you can try out the different types of cutting in the shop as there are tonnes available for trying
(3) not particular about workmanship - the qipaos will look good no doubt but if one scrutinises, one will find a lot of flaws with the threading and seams etc.
The main branch and also the "factory" is located in SS2 and I highly recommend that outlet as there seems to be more choice there and the price seems slightly cheaper than those in Pavilion and One Utama. Either that or they place the more expensive ones at the other 2 outlets. If you are looking for more modern designs, then I will recommend you visit Pavilion and One Utama as I believe more modern ones are placed at the shopping centre outlets. 10% discounts are almost always offered for readymade qipaos bought off the rack and each readymade qipao can be altered plus minus 2 inches.
Chinese Costume Fitting @ Emerald Brilliant. Been looking high and low for a perfect place to get my Chinese qipao done. Thanks to SP for her recommendation, finally found the perfect place!! There were tons of ready made Chinese costumes at this shop. There were long qipao, short qipao, sam fu, kun kwa and even baju kebaya. Can you believe it? Finally, nothing off the rack seems to be exactly what I wanted. So custom made it is!

I found out that Wedding Isle's chinese 'kua' are up for rental and rental starts from RM300 onwards depending on the choice of beadings. If you intend to wear 'kua' I highly recommend this place as I personally saw the 'kua' there and they were all very fine looking, even the RM300 ones.

I have tailored a cheongsam for my wedding dinner with White & Lacy.
Paulyn is patient and professional. She is very careful and pays attention to details. She also tailors a lot of wedding gowns. Maybe you can drop by and see if you can find anything off the rack, if not then can get a quote from her for your gown?
I really loved my cheongsam, and the price was also reasonable for the quality of lace & fabric and workmanship.
You have to make an appointment first:
