Getting To Know Eva Chen

In Interviews on February 20, 2012 at 7:13 am

I met Eva Chen last year when I was Head Stylist for Vancouver Fashion Week. I remember this vibrant woman coming through the doors for model castings with a buzz of people around her .  Her garments weren’t with her at the time but from her persona, I knew they were going to be glamorous, sophisticated and elegant – I was right, her garments hit the runway showing clean and feminine but edgy lines in a mixture of leather, fur, studs and lace.

Over the months – we’ve kept in touch and I’ve had the honor of using a few of Eva’s pieces for shoots and I’m always taken aback by how down to earth and warm she is.  I caught up with Eva a few weeks ago to gain more insight into this creative lady.
