Ms Priscilla SHUNMUGAM

Founder

Ong Shunmugam

Priscilla Shunmugam read law at the National University of Singapore but chose early retirement. In 2008 she spent a year in England studying dressmaking and pattern-cutting. Upon her return to Singapore, she began developing the womenswear label Ong Shunmugam.

In seven years, Priscilla has steered Ong Shunmugam to emerge as one of the most promising fashion brands in Singapore and Southeast Asia. The label was a Grand Award recipient at the 2013 Design for Asia Awards, and has presented collections at the National Museum of Singapore and Beijing’s Museum of Women and Children. 

Priscilla has had no formal design training and therefore relies on instinct, logic and analysis. She manages the Design, Procurement, Branding and Strategy departments at Ong Shunmugam, and occasionally services clients on the shop floor.
