Indie Designer Crush: Twinkie Chan!

That Girl Who Makes Food Scarves

I first knew of Stephanie a.k.a. Twinkie Chan on Live Journal way back when she blogged under the handle potatoxstamp. We had a mutual friend on LJ who I’ve long since lost touch with. (What was your name…?) I knew as soon as I saw her face in her icon that I wanted her to model my clothes some day. I was recently finally able to make that happen. (Hot!) So who is Twinkie Chan? If you don’t know then you must have snagged yourself some prime real estate under a rock somewhere. (Kidding!) Twinkie Chan is a San Francisco based, dog loving, crochet pattern drafting, scarf making, indie model and up and coming web-celeb. If you don’t know her yet, you will soon.

Twinkie Chan’s super cute food themed scarves go for upwards of $200.00. No lie. And they have inspired a ton of knock-off artists out there on the net and in bricks and mortar boutiques. This very talented designer has been featured in publications such as Giant Robot, Nickelodeon Magazine and Inked Magazine. Her work was recently shown in Chicago’s Sugar Craft art show, proving her to be a true artist as well as a businesswoman. Even though she has accomplished so much in such a short time, she still remains down to earth. She spends her days working as a literary agent, caring for her dogs Bibi and Bunny, and working on various projects such as her new site: ieatyuckystuff.com. Even her alt-model fame hasn’t diminished her totally sweet personality. Oh yeah and did I mention she runs a successful website too? Just spend a few minutes on her fun, wacky site Twinkiechan.com and it’s easy to see why she has attained such a following and become this month’s Indie Designer Crush. If you’re still not head over heels just check out the pictures below!
