Jin Chong Yu, 33, was an opera singer before launching his label JINNNN on a whim. ”I wanted to attend France’s Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale, where Yves Saint Laurent went, but it was past the admissions deadline. So I did some drawings, sent them in, and the director asked me to come to Paris,” he explained. Then, one of his muslin experiments caught the eye of his friend, Shaway Yeh, the powerful group style director of China’s Modern Media. She requested a version made “in real fabric” to wear to a meeting with Karl Lagerfeld. Two years ago, he launched his own ready-to-wear brand, and is now branching out into eyewear, thanks to another crazy experiment. ”Everyone wanted to buy them, so I ended up producing them and we sold 1,200 pairs in the first month and last week Lady Gaga’s stylist called for a pair,” he explains.
