femme du jour: Tina Chow

This week we're enamored with the style of the one and only Tina Chow. Tina Chow was a model and style icon during the 1980s. A member of the NYC elite, she was close friends with Andy Warhol, Manolo Blahnik and Jean Michel Basquiat. Tina was born Bettina Louise Lutz, daughter of a German father and Japanese mother. In 1972, she married Michael Chow, owner of the Mr. Chow restaurant chain. She and Michael were among NYC's biggest celebrities, andwhere she rubbed elbows with many artists and creatives. Tragically, Tina died in 1992 at the age of 41. Tina's grace and completely original look continue to inspire us.
