Our Story

Everybody is unique. And so is Every body.

As fast fashion becomes ever more common, women are increasingly offered cookie-cutter apparel that makes unrealistic assumptions about how they should look and dress.

We deserve better. We believe that fashion should be designed for customers, and made with the wearer in mind, from the very First Stitch.

Local roots

Our humble beginnings in the 1980s as a market stall in Tiong Bahru Market, and then a modest space at the back of a shophouse close by. Over 30 years, we have served our customers from all walks of life through a hole-in-the-wall.

Now, we want to be better.

Change is here

Over the years, the fashion landscape has changed rapidly and profoundly. We believe that the wholesale-to-retailer model is over. As retailers, we must bring the fashion design closer to our customers’ tastes and preferences. The wholesalers do not interface directly with our customers, but we do.

From the First Stitch

Today, First Stitch offers customers garments that are well thought out and cared for even right before the first stitch is made. It is our passion to find ways to make ready-to-wear garments that achieve the best fit for our customers. And all these are done with affordability in mind.

We believe that every body is special in its own way, and there is no one-size-fits-all.

From the First Stitch, to the very last.*

*We offer in-house alteration services so that our garments can match every body type.
