I was doing social media marketing for a Warehouse sale at an exclusive women’s boutique when I came across Chan Luu again! I had read about her years ago how she bopped over from China, set up shop creating amazing pleated scarves with even more amazing sell through. I wasn’t in the market for expensive scarves back then so she fell off my radar.
But then I see these amazing wraparound bracelets and hear that they are all the rage where I live, and they are by … wait for it, Chan Luu. Does she have uncanny fashion sense or what?! And how is this possible if you grew up in mainland China?
So, I am forced to investigate (and also hope to score an interview with her at some point … any of you readers happen to know her?).
This is what I discover:
- She has a fashion line AND it’s cute stuff (sort of Ella Moss meets Anna Sui).
- She has a blog and it’s great!
- She’s actually from Vietman.
- And here is her bio … (via MoonDanceJewerly.com)
Chan Luu left Vietnam, where she was born and raised, to further her education at Boston University in Massachusetts majoring in Business Administration. Following her dream of becoming a designer, she later moved to Los Angeles and enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising earning a degree in Fashion Design in 1975.
Chan’s pieces have been featured in Vogue, Elle, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar andInStyle. Her designs have been worn by celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston,Mischa Barton, Sandra Bullock, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Drew Barrymore, Janet Jackson. Chan is an avid tennis player and scuba diver. She also enjoys gardening and cooking for her friends. She currently resides in Pacific Palisades with her dogs, Henry and Benji.
Is Chan Luu all the rage in your circle? What do you think of her designs?
