ROJO Clothing - Young Irish Entrepreneur set to change the tailoring business in Shanghai
When: May 27th 2015
Where: Doc Guthrie's Barber Shop, Shanghai
What: The Launch event of ROJO Clothing
A new tailoring company, ROJO Clothing, has recently launched in Shanghai. Established by young Irish entrepreneur Rónan Kent, ROJO Clothing is breaking into the tailoring industry with success. ROJO provides class tailored suits with a new twist, having the tailor come to you. Whether it's in the comfort of your home or in your Shanghai office, clients can schedule to get a customized fitted ROJO suit measured and completed within 7 days. ROJO Clothing provides great service and works with you all the way until you get your hands on your tailored ROJO suit.
On May 27th, ROJO Clothing held an incredible launch party at Doc Guthrie's Barber Shop. With collaborations with gin company Monkey 47, Thomas Henry Tonic Water, ad YCB (Young Chinese Blood) the night was a massive success. Mannequins donned in ROJO Clothing original suits were placed around the barber shop like art pieces, giving the guests an opportunity to see the suits close-up. Guests were seen having a great time mingling with a Monkey 47 gin and tonic in hand while listening to music picked by Shanghai-based DJ, DJ TYGI. The evening also included an all-male runway. Each model presented the diversity of ROJO suits with their own motif. The amount of attention to detail in the runway blew everyone away. From the hand-picked music for each model to correlate with their suit to the stitching and buttons on the suits themselves, Rónan concocted a night to be remembered as the night ROJO Clothing made a name for themselves in Shanghai.
ROJO Clothing suits are provided in a three-tier range: Essential (1,200 RMB, 95% wool), Corporate (1,700 RMB, 100% wool), and Executive (2,800 RMB, 100% cashmere from a family fabric mill in Milan, Italy). All suits are available with unlimited customization from hand-stitched initials, extra inside pockets, and pipe-line stitching. The Corporate and Executive also come with an additional tailored shirt, custom designed handkerchiefs, and handcrafted ties to complete the ROJO look. ROJO Clothing has built a whole new platform so early in its' career in the competitive market in the Shanghai tailoring industry and we're excited to see where Rónan takes it this year.
