PQ Fine Alterations, originally named PQ Fashions, is a family business that started by Ping back in 1998 along with a talented team of fully-trained pattern makers and tailors.
For 20 years, PQ Fashions has been an iconic destination in Brisbane for quality clothing alterations. PQ has built an outstanding reputation amongst independent Bridal boutiques, major retailers and prominent international clothing designers, including Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Burberry, Armani, MaxMara, Aje and many more. They partner with over 30 fashion retailers in the Brisbane CBD alone, providing reliable, quality alternations for their customers.
After a successful career in her passion project and careful consideration, Ping has decided to retire and pass the legacy onto our manager, Jo. Jo has been with PQ Fashions for over five years and is also Ping’s talented niece.
“Over the past five years working in this business, Ping not only taught me her incredible skills, her passion and dedication to her work also inspired me. Since taking on the role of store manager in 2016, I fell in love with PQ even more and worked as if this was my own business” says Jo.
“Now I am honoured to become the new owner of PQ. I have kept PQ in the name, to thank Ping for the opportunity and to continue her legacy.”
PQ Fine Alterations will maintain the same team of tailors, location, equipment, and of course the same level of service to our valued clients.
“I take pride as a manager and small-business owner, and I will ensure unparalleled care of PQ’s long-standing commercial and individual customers, and will continue to offer the excellent service that PQ is well-known for.”
PQ now boasts ten people in the team. PQ’s loyal customers value their superior service, personal attention and outstanding results – time after time. They continue to pride themselves on their knowledge and expertise that there is no such thing as one size fits all.
