    Chloe Dao - Season 2


    Age: 33
    Home Town: Houston, TX.
    Education: Fashion Institute of Technology


    From the official site:
    Chloe Dao, a Vietnamese born in Pakse, Laos, is living the American dream. Born the sixth child of eight girls in her family, she emigrated to the U.S. with her family in 1979 and settled in Houston, Texas.

    By the age of ten, Chloe saw her first episode of “Style with Elsa Klensch” on CNN and knew she wanted to be a fashion designer. She majored in marketing at the University of Houston, but after one year in college she realized her childhood dream of becoming a fashion designer had to be fulfilled.

    Inspired by her mother, a successful business owner, Chloe began her pursuit of becoming a designer and enrolled in the fashion design program at Houston Community College. After one semester, she took a week vacation to New York City that turned into an eight-year career.

    In 1992, Chloe enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Technology with a focus on pattern making. Before graduating, Chloe worked with Madame Rossuel, a costume couture shop where she was first exposed to couture details and techniques, the art of window displays and the management of a sole proprietor business.

    Cute girl, but I don't feel much from her. I'll have to wait and see what she does.

    She left Laos when she was a small girl, but she might still feel connected with that heritage. I'm certainly excited to see. She does seem a little dull though. Wonder what her "couture" experience will do for her designs as well.

    I am quoting my own quote.

    First design was excellent. Very high fashion. I like the fact that she had the least to work with, and pulled off such a successful design. Good Job. Well deserved victory.

    Well then, I'm going to quote myself too!

    I still don't feel much from her. That black on turquoise deal was not my cup of tea whatsoever, although kudos to her for her winning design. She's good, just not my favorite.

    She is my favorite right now. She won that second challenge and then kept her mouth shut when Santino said "they just didn't want to give me two in a row."

    I have to really give her props. Out of all the "professionals" who came into this, she is the one who is really on track. She has her own salon (albeit in TX), she was gracious enough to welcome Daniel back, as she was familar with his actual work to understand why he deserved another chance. She worked with the least amount of material in the second challenge, yet still managed to turn out an original design. She also handled Santino's rude comment graciously. She has the talent, and she is very professional. She's one of my top 3.
