Bespoke Designing & Dressmaking

Vicky Chan - 29 July 2019

Haven't had a dress tailor-made for a long time (Bespoke Designing). This time, the experience is special. My designer-dressmaker friend and I have been chatting informally about styles and material I like. They all ended in an outing to Arab Street. A first time experience for me. 

Didn't know that there is so much 学问 to choosing material. Thank God for a very experiences cloth-merchant on hand. Did you know that linen from different countries have different texture, softness, etc? And I thought all linen are the same. ;) 

What an awesome experience! Hey, how many people get to go shopping with your designer? :) 

Sewing Tutorial

Kah Yee - 26 Nov 2019

Alvina is very patient in teaching me how to sew by hand (Sewing Workshop). She takes the effort to understand what you wish to learn about sewing and then impart the different kind of stitches that you can use for different kinds of purpose. She will be by your side during the lesson to show you how to sew, and she will simplify the steps / instructions such that you will not get confused. 

She is a lovely person to talk to, I enjoy my time learning the different sewing methods and stitches from her. Do engage her services if you want to learn some simple yet different types of sewing and stitches you could do for minor alterations to your clothes such as making it smaller or adding pockets to your apparels :D

I like the Carielle design and bought the button earrings. It's a rose pattern wth black background. I could also feel the founder's passion for designing dresses and accessories that are a good fit with each individual. She takes the time to understand them and source for fabrics with the person in mind. Give it a go and have your own bespoke dress! (Accessories)

Bag & Sewing Tutorial

Christina Chua-Wadia - 19 Dec 2019

Had gotten a piece of the tailored made floral handbag recently, really nice and exquisite. It's the story behind each pieces Alvina made that intrigue me. Alvina's pieces are limited edition and specially chosen fabric. All are one of its kind. If those she made, are not to your taste, you can always get her to make one to your liking by choosing fabric and design to show her. She is a great listener, patient and meticulous. Alvina gives sewing lessons too and if you're interested can enquire from her. Her prices are reasonable and my experience with her was really warm and heartening. Thank you Alvina, I've gotten quite a few useful tips that saves me money and time. 😁 (Bag & Sewing Workshop)

Love the bags. I am waiting to give one to a girlfriend for her birthday this month. (Bespoke Items)

Jasmine - 3 Feb 2023

Alvina was patient and knowledgable for colour and body shape analysis. For colour analysis, she put various colour shades against my skin and let me drape over some fabric to see the effect on my skin and complexion. She advised against certain shades of colours of clothes/jewellery as they would make me look washed out or unflattering. 


For body shape analysis, she helped to clarify doubts on my body shape and advised suitable neckline, waistline and cutting that would be flattering for my body. Additionally, she addressed other questions I had about clothes material and so on. 


Alvina is well-versed in custom tailoring and has strong background in fashion, hence you will be in good hands. I enjoyed my session very much, thank you! (Skin Colour Analysis &

Thank you Alvina for the thorough and detailed Skin Colour Analysis session! I have learnt a lot about the principles behind what suits my skin tone and what to avoid.

Before this session, I always thought that I am a cool tone person, and had assumed certain colours suits me. After today’s insightful session, I came to know that I fall under the Warm tone instead. Certain colours which I thinks that suits me was also confirm today, along with the discovery of other new suitable shades. Alvina explained the concept in how to identify the colours and tones that suits me, be it clothings or makeup. Definitely learnt something new today!

I found this session online and I registered a session with my friend. It is a pleasure experience in my first colour analysis. Alvina is very attentive and she gave me a very detailed explanation on what colour/linen/jewelries and makeup colours that best suit to my skin tone.
