MAX TAN | Fashion Designer

MAX TAN is the founder and fashion designer of the brand, max.tan. He graduated from NAFA Fashion Design in 2006 as Best Graduate and went on to show his first collection at the Singapore Fashion Week in 2007. He had also been awarded the second runner-up position at the Singapore Fashion Designers Content. With the recognition that he received from the competition, Max started his own label max.tan and continues to create one-off pieces and capsule collections to meet the increasing demand for his designs.


Today, max.tan is stocked in key retail outlets throughout Singapore, and is making waves in the international retail scene. max.tan was invited to showcase at Modefabriek in Amsterdam in 2010 and was the first Asian-based label ever to do so. The A/W 2010-11 collection which debuted in Amsterdam was subsequently featured by Vogue Paris Online and went on to win second place at the China Fashion Creation Contest 2010. His following S/S 2011 collection was picked up by Vogue Nippon and Surface Asia calls max.tan one of the hottest new names to look out for in fashion.

Serious but never severe, minimal but never simple, fragile but never weak.


Experiments with quirk cuts and expanding on extremely simple ideas, define the MAX.TAN language. Maximizing on minimalistic ideas, the collections evoke a serene universe nuanced with a rebellious spirit. Masculinity and femininity are crafted into each collection. Infused with a touch of contemporary art, the garments play with volume, modified shapes and use, oversized, undersized, deconstruction, reconstruction and transformation.


These factors form the underlying DNA of MAX.TAN. The label advocates an alternative and quiet fashion lifestyle; a free spirit who dresses to please no one but herself.
