C/FAN is a Chicago based label launched in 2008 by designer Christina Fan. Fan studied history at Northwestern University but found herself inexplicably attracted to the world of fashion and design. C/FAN began as a collection of winter coats and basic t-shirts and has since evolved to include Saville Row inspired suiting, diaphanous dresses and separates. The label has garnered a cult following for the luxe, beautiful fabrics and precise, refined tailoring. C/FAN collections all draw upon various inspirations from the worlds of art, music, film and pop culture. Each collection has a narrative character or central theme. Influences include the brooding, fierce Dagny Taggart, the illicit Opium dens of 1920's China, the many eccentric characters of Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood and a vintage Claude Montana shirt.
