An exotic fusion of Chinese/Puerto Rican/English genes and a global upbringing lent Chrissy Wai Ching a cosmopolitan sensibility, but it was not until she went to live amidst the "bright colors and abundant beauty" of Nice that she discovered the ideal outlet for her many cultural influences: couture.
Chrissy debuted her wild yet wearable line, Wai-Ching, in 2003 with figure flattery at the top of her priority list. Creating fiercely unique clothing is a delicate process. To Wai-Ching, the art lies not only in designing, but also in selecting luxurious silks, hand-dyeing the blank canvas, and meticulously piecing together each masterpiece. The name Wai Ching (Cantonese for wisdom and virtue) reflects the philosophy of the line and of the artist herself.
