Anton Chen is a Chinese fashion designer and entrepreneur. He had always shown talent and an interest in fashion, but pressured by his family, instead trained to be a teacher. Anton worked as a teacher for several years until his friend Jolly Pan offered use of a flat in Wuhan for six months rent-free. There he studied design and tailoring by himself, starting his business from scratch by bringing suitcases of samples to shops in Shanghai. By 2013 Anton had established his ready-to-wear fashion house, CHEN. The goal of CHEN is to use clean cut styles, and solid quality materials, forming chic romantic dresses.
