Cheongsam Search in Singapore

I had just visited Arab street in Singapore to look for the materials I will be using in my made-to-measure cheongsam (aka Qi Pao). Having to choose something out of the myraid of possibilities is very taxing for an indecisive person like myself. I think I may be much more suited for off-the-rack purchases. I did, however, enjoy walking through Arab street and realizing that LA Fashion district does have cheaper fabrics. I happen to think that the cheongsam and the kimono/yukata are essential in an Asian woman's closet. And for other ethnicity, well, let's just say WHY NOT? It's pretty!!
