Calvin Tran, designer/store owner/Fashion Show contestant
You can’t really give away anything that happens on the show, but when you’re in one of your stores, people are going to ask you about it.
Maybe I’ll gain some more weight, so nobody will recognize me! [Laughs] I have no idea what’s going to happen, but I’ve had a great experience on the show and can talk about that.
How often are you in your Chicago store?
I come to Chicago once a month. I do all my production in New York; it’s easier to work in the Garment District than in Chicago.
So if fans of the show want to see you in person, they’ll just have to stop in and hope that’s when you’re visiting?
Oh no, I will make an announcement and invite people when I’m there. And I’m going to try to be in Chicago every two weeks now. I love it there; I grew up in Chicago.
The Fashion Show airs Tuesdays, beginning Tue 9 at 9pm on Bravo; Calvin Tran is located at 2154 N Halsted St (773-529-4070).
