Since 2012, New York City's Lower East Side has been home to Szeki Chan's line of timeless and sophisticated womenswear that is effortlessly polished and futuristic. Named "7115" after the Hong Kong telegram code for CHAN, as a means of honouring her family and the country in which she was born. She now leads two flagship stores in NYC and her clothing is available around the world, including right here in Room 2046.

Chan, a graduate of Parsons School of Design, has built her brand on three ideals: aesthetic, quality and attainability. It is these three qualities which combine to create a line that is wearable by all types of women, and will combine into any wardrobe for years to come. It this balance that is the key to her process, creating a circular process of design and reasoning that is used to achieve balance until a product is perfected.

Szeki's inspiration for her constant improvement comes directly from the source. She is often seen working the Lower East Side boutique, interacting with her customers. "Nothing inspires me more than the everyday women who walk into my stores, being able to directly speak to my customer is the most exciting source of inspiration." It's this level of personalized dedication that shows just why her clothing will become  the hardest-working, most effortless pieces in your closet for years to come.

7115 is also known for their natural and sustainable fabrics. From the moment you feel the hand of each garment, it's easy to notice Chan's commitment to quality and comfort. Working mostly with linen, cotton, tencel silk, and wool, all 7115 garments are started and finished in her personal studio.

It's easy to see how a higher level of craftsmanship and personal investment goes a long way into creating a clothing line. If there is one thing Szeki Chan has a leg up on is her commitment to making head-turning garments that feel effortless, mostly because Szeki has taken all the effort upon herself to make the near perfect season after season.
