The ShirtStylist team will engage the customers with personal styling advice, measurement and fitting in the ShirtStylist’s studio or customer’s office. Customers will then be able to access their style profile and measurements in the ShirtStylist online store, where they can explore different fabrics and have a fun experience to create custom-made shirts tailored to their own styles and needs, all delivered to the customers at a click. The team – all of whom have an extensive background in luxury fashion – is also gearing up to enter the mainland China market in 2019, followed by expansions into Singapore, Japan and Canada in the near future. Beginning his career as a Management Trainee at P&G, Lewis became an e-Commerce consultant in 2000 and then went on to business process re-engineering for Lane Crawford. There, he was later invited to switch to the operations side as a Store Manager of a 50,000 sq. ft. department store.  With his strong background in consulting and business, Lewis was soon able to bring new vision and ideas to the company, and he continued to work in retail and fashion in a leadership role for the next decade. In recent years, he has focused on helping international brands expand to Asia, overseeing a wide scope of activities from opening new stores to e-commerce. The market insights, experience and network that he built up over the course of his career provided him with a strong foundation from which to launch ShirtStylist. More about Lewis here
