Slideshow: Introducing the Locally Designed Fashion Line Schai by Suk Chai
Color, cut, and avant-garde comfort coalesce in an ultramodern women's line by a former Nordstrom designer, and it might just put Seattle on another map. (The Fashion Designer map.)
There are local designers, and then there are designers who happen to be local.
After 14 years on a top team at Nordstrom, Bellevue-based fashion and retail veteran Suk Chai steps out with Schai (pronounced “shay”), her deeply personal premiere line. Here's a look at the first collection, which is currently being shown to top-notch market-week buyers in Chai's New York showroom. An order has already been placed (meaning not an individual order, but that a retailer will be offering the collection to its shoppers) by Louis in Boston, a sort of Mario's for the Massachusetts fash pack.
