The New York-based, self-trained designer has made her mark since her design debut in 2012. Her work continues to be seen internationally in Film, TV, Commercials, Music Videos, Opera, and was requested by her homeland of Jamaica to create the country’s national costume for the Miss World 2015 competition in Sanya, China. She is best known for her designs on the red carpets at the Academy Awards, Festival de Cannes and several other award ceremonies. Chin, known for her spirited personality, celebrity clientele, and design abilities is the new cast member and celebrity stylist for Hollywood-based reality TV series Back on The Market, currently in pre-production. Chin replaced celebrity stylist Jennifer Rade on the television series after Rade received the network’s green light for her own TV show.
Chin’s design aesthetic is stamped with a sense of royalty. The colors, the flair, the cut, detail and finishing all embodies perfection of style and an obvious sense of fashion and sophistication. The trained journalist and finance guru relinquished her executive post on Wall Street to fulfill her passion in the creative industry.
She believes her artistic approach to design, as well as her inspiration from nature, is deeply rooted from her mixed cultural background and upbringing in Jamaica. “My very first collection was born after being inspired by the kaleidoscope of colors from Negril’s reef while snorkeling,” Chin said. The fashion line combines the past, present and future with fashion, art and mythology at its backdrop.
