Our Story

It was the unlikeliest of entries into the capricious world of fashion, when accountant Ho KL quit (his) corporate career to begin buying and selling as a wholesale distributor.

Keen to try his hand in producing his own designs, Ho eventually set up a production team producing samples for various brands and local designers.

Not letting his lack of formal training deter him, Ho would sit day and night with his seamsters and seamstresses to develop the best possible cut and designs.

Indeed, he credits that experience for teaching him the fundamental ins and outs of the industry- an experience that would lay the foundations of his own brand philosophy.

Soon, Ho sought to take his business to the next level with an equally unlikely, but timely team up  his friend Jiason Foong, winner of the MODA Young Designer Award.   Foong shared Ho’s vision and passion to create a brand of their own.

Sharing designer roles, the pair spent the first few years experimenting with brand’s design direction. After several successful campaigns targeting the urban career woman, Ho and Foong knew they found their niche and never looked back since.

Recognising the gap in the market for well-designed working wear, The MOD House strives to present trendy and stylish designs with a classic tailored fit.  

THE MOD HOUSE is an established designers brand. MOD, abbreviation of Malaysian Original Design, the brand is all about designing fashion for the cosmopolitan women today.
