Founded in 1913 with a reputation for crafting impeccable suits for celebrities, Modernize Tailors is a Vancouver institution located in the heart of Chinatown. When legendary owner Bill Wong passed in April 2017, the shop was handed over to his intern, Blanche Macdonald Fashion Design program graduate Mia Wu. Now, Mia continues the legacy of Modernize, creating high quality garments. Her mission? To turn Modernize to the leading tailoring house in Vancouver and across Canada.
