Chloe Dao: Lot 8

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of her boutique, LOT 8, Chloe Dao has come a long way since her “Project Runway” win in 2006. One step inside her friendly boutique is like stopping in for a party with friends. Half of the shop is devoted to the Dao Chloe Dao Collection, with very limited editions and high-end fabrics. The other half of the shop offers more accessible clothing, jewelry, shoes and accessories that she and her sister, Sydney, have carefully chosen to make it easy to mix and match. Her motto is “Fashion for everyone, not just the skinny and the rich.”
