Born and raised in South Vietnam, in a sea-side town called Nha Trang, Chan had a passion for designing at a very young age. She recalls gathering seashells from along the shore and spending hours handcrafting one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry for herself and friends.
After completing her Bachelor’s Degree in business from Boston University, Chan knew she had to follow her passion of becoming a fashion designer. Chan picked up and moved to Los Angeles, California to study fashion design.
In 1996, Chan established her brand under her namesake with a vision of quality design that is inspired by various cultures from around the world. Chan believed that the uniqueness and authenticity of her designs could only be conveyed by having skilled artisans make each of her pieces by hand. Chan made a promise to herself and her customers that each design within every collection would be completely handcrafted.
Nearly 20 years later, Chan has not only inspired new fashion trends, but has expanded her collections to include detailed jewelry for women and men, cashmere blend scarves, and a complete line of ready-to-wear. The recent launch of Chan’s new home collection captures her vision of creating a contemporary lifestyle brand by offering her customers a unique Chan Luu experience.
