we specialise in handmade bow ties and regularly work with clients to create custom designed hand painted bow ties. our corporate clients have included the wiggles, kitchenaid and spineart.
edward kwan is named after my grandfather who, until the age of 85, worked full time as a master tailor at the shangri-la hotel singapore and has made suits for bill clinton, george bush senior and the first president of singapore, yusof ishak. he now works by appointment only.
the original tailoring business was passed down from my great grandfather.
all products are handmade in melbourne australia by my father whom i taught to sew from scratch. all hand painted products are designed and painted by myself.
