Colleen Quen, Couturier
Born and lives in San Francisco, California, 1962. Fourth generation Chinese American.
My charming Atelier is privately tucked away on one of the highest San Francisco hills called Telegraph by Coit Tower.
My three decades of work in Couture fashion and art in my community as well as internationally, are inspired by my global cultural influences from my Eastern Spiritual heritage, my American upbringing and French couture education which lead to my International Museum commissions, Ballet costumes and Private Clientele which are exhibited and worn all around the world. Integrating my cultural experiences and life dedication to Couture and art it internally speaks to me with such pure clarity and intention. I am an optimistic poet, romantic sculptor expressing and creating each art piece with my heart and hands through the characteristics of fabric and the human spirit. To be a creative vessel, educator and communicator for our planet through our Fashion Design. My life mission in my work, is to always bring forth a Universal message with honor to French Couture and the message of pure Beauty, Elegance and Style.
