Before Mrs. Wang built her company in Shanghai, I am sure everyone already knew of her fabulous reputation.

Her respect for tradition, decorum, and passion for design had been clearly exhibited in her long-established brand, SHIATZY CHEN, founded originally in Taiwan.

SHIATZY CHEN’s insistence on handcrafted works and high-quality craftsmanship is visible in both Taiwan and Shanghai. At the headquarters in Taiwan, the workers’ dedication and focus are apparent as they sew meticulously in silence.

Mrs. Wang’s clientele is faithful, and she wouldn’t dream of deceiving them. They’re not looking for glittering and extravagant fashion, but rather moderation, which they find in SHIATZY CHEN.

The designer is very proud of her Chinese roots and uses this influence in her work with subtlety and imagination. Mrs. Wang’s shows in Paris are beautiful and serene. SHIATZY CHEN’s stores present objects and accessories of excellent quality and design. The whole family is completely involved in her business and participates in refined hospitality.

Her brand is the nearest in spirit to our French luxury brands. This is the reason SHIATZY CHEN was elected as a member of the French Federation in November 2009.
