Cyndi Chan’s Fall-Holiday 2008 “Desire Chic” – Timeless Clothing for Party-goers like You!

The Chicago-based designer Cyndi Chan is getting some serious attention on the national fashion scene and is about to step it up a notch this fall as Macy’s picks up her line, Ori-en by Cyndi Chan. “It’s all about the fabrics and precise tailoring!” Chan emphasizes. Her prêt-a-porter fall collection has strong movement with draping of flowing pleated skirts and dresses in glimmering silver that fall sensuously over curves. Even Chan’s more structured pieces have a delicate flexibility provided by stretch satin fabric. Ori-en has a feel of the old Roman empire mix with old Hollywood glamour, glass beadings, diamond weaved pattern in silk materials, long & sexy V-back sequins dress and high-waisted, suede leather pants in grey hues that even Kate Blanchett would have given a nod to. The former Donna Karan intern also is clearly inspired by 60’s icons such as Audrey and Marilyn with namesake trenches and dresses. Watch out for her pleated dresses and her faux far coat this winter! Sex and the Windy City!

ORi’EN is her signature line, which she derived from the word “Orient.” Her design philosophy for this line emphasizes in elegant tailoring and classic chic with a twist. “It’s all about the fabrics!” she exclaims, referring to the importance of the selection of fabrics and how it affects the drape performance on each garment.
