Mark your calendar for the CHAIKEN Fall 2012 Sample Sale. A line that we all love. In 1994, Entrepreneur & Creative Director Julie Chaiken launched her now eponymous line as Chaiken and Capone. It was an early success and generated worldwide buzz with the creation of the perfect fitting pant. As the brand evolved, collections expanded every season to adding more options including, skirts, sexy tops, knits, leathers, dresses and always a great suit. In the Spring of 2010, the company relaunched as CHAIKEN, offering a full RTW collection, while maintaining its reputation for delivering the impeccably fitted pant. Creating a wardrobe perfect for uptown work and downtown play, CHAIKEN dresses the confident, social, sexy, smart woman with an innate sense of personal style. Headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in New York City, every piece is designed and produced in the United States. CHAIKEN is sold in over 200 stores internationally, from New York to Tokyo. At the 2010 Graduation Fashion Show and Awards Ceremony, Julie Chaiken received an Academy of Art University President’s Award For Excellence In Design in recognition for her contribution to the fashion industry.
