Grace Chen Shares Her Journey, Designs During FIT Visit
When Grace Chen, Fashion Design ’96, sees a woman, she thinks of her as being in a story. Through her designs, Chen tries to help that woman fit into her story or inspire her to play her role even better.
Chen, an FIT alumna who established her own brand in China in 2009, discussed her design journey with Cathleen Sheehan, chair of the Fashion Design MFA program, on Jan. 23 in the Katie Murphy Amphitheatre. The evening comprised a meet and greet with the designer, a fashion show of Chen’s designs, and the one-on-one conversation.
