Year-old contemporary line Chloe & Reese last week launched a Web store to sell made-to-order clothing for women in creative industries who want classic, well-made clothes and can’t afford designer.
The line was started by Annmarie Scotto with no previous experience in fashion or outside funding, and is carried by about 40 retailers worldwide, including Neiman Marcus, Henri Bendel, Harrods and Saks Fifth Avenue. Retailers reordered items from the fall 2008 line and placed orders for the spring collection even after the economic drop in October, said Scotto.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
