If you’ve ever wondered what goes into making a fashion masterpiece, UNIQLO’s series of four free workshops and talks from Oct 1 to 9 might be right up your alley.

Held at UNIQLO’s Orchard Central global flagship store, the four workshops are linked to UNIQLO’s new clothing collection named Masterpiece. 

The workshops are hosted by local “Masters” who will share their different perspectives on what makes a particular piece of clothing worthy of being a Masterpiece.
