High Tea with Mrs Woo

High Tea with Mrs Woo is the creative collaboration of sisters – Rowena, Juliana and Angela Foong. Established in 2004, their distinctive designs bridge the space between fashion and clothing, art and craft.
Fascinated with the memory of clothing, High Tea with Mrs Woo explores the ability of fashion to unfold a great yarn. They describe each garment like a character, an evocation or a moment in time – like Stuck in Ueno, Irreversible, The Collector, Waiting for Jack to name a few.
High Tea with Mrs Woo use traditional tailoring methods to develop unique shapes from conventional dress forms. The sisters appreciate and practice the time-honoured qualities of dressmaking. They practice Slow Fashion values – using materials and creating designs that are appreciated for their craftsmanship, wearability and materiality; maintaining a small and sustainable scale of production to make clothing that is worthy of care and enjoyment for a long and useful life.
High Tea with Mrs Woo design and manufacture this distinctive clothing range from their workshop studio located in the light-industrial suburb of Islington, on Awabakal land, in the Newcastle and Hunter New England region of Australia.
