About Daniel

Hello, I'm Daniel Tsai.  I've been offering quality tailoring, alteration and repairs from home for over 3 years. I opened a new shop this year to better service my clients.

  • Eight siblings
  • Parents - Jack and Grace Tsai
  • Family moved to Port Alberni from Vancouver when I was two years old.
  • Homeschooled - gives me the flexibility of planning my school work around my shop hours.

  • Always had a sense of fashion
  • Would rather freeze than wear something that did not fit well.
  • Started sewing with used machine that Mom bought at a garage sale.
  • Got some instructions from Mom, and more lessons from Grandma; who used to be a sewing teacher.
  • Continued with self-study and honed my skills tailoring, altering and repairing garments for my family.
  • Started my own business “SEW 4 YOU” when I was twelve years old, providing alterations and repair services from home.
  • Enrolled in ADSS Textiles course last year, and became a Teaching Assistant.

  • Opened my own shop “Tailor Me” this year on my sixteenth birthday, in order to make my services more accessible to the community, continue to develop my construction and tailoring techniques, gain business operations and customer service experience, and earn enough money to attend fashion design school after graduation.
  • My ultimate goal is to become a world-class fashion designer, focusing on men’s fashion.
