Lily Chin was the first American knitwear designer to create a line of fashion yarns under her own name, The Lily Chin Signature Collection, launched in 2005 with CNS Yarns.
She has created couture crochet for the New York Fashion Week runway collections of designers Ralph Lauren, Vera Wang, Diane von Furstenberg, and Isaac Mizrahi, and her work has been on the backs of celebrities and super models, from Racquel Welch and Vanna White to Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell.
In the 1990s she was named a “Master Knitter” by Vogue Knitting International. In her career she has designed some outrageous garments, including an Absolut Vodka cozy for an international marketing campaign, a string bikini for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, and ready-to-wear for the Gap. She is regularly cited in media across the U.S., including Time, The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, and New York Daily News, for redefining the image of today’s knitter and crocheter.
Most recently, she’s hosted the high-fashion knitting show, Stitchcraft, on the Oh! Oxygen network. Her other television credits include the Late Show with David Letterman, Martha, CBS Morning News, ESPN’s Cold Pizza, Fox & Friends, The Jane Pauley Show, CNN, HGTV, and more.
Lily Chin is the official spokesperson for the Orphan Foundation of America Red Scarf Project, which collect handmade scarves to send warmth and encouragement to America’s college-bound foster youth each year in Valentine’s Day Care Packages. Lily Chin has lived in New York City nearly all her life and has been involved in some aspect of the fashion industry since age 13.
