Designer News. Chicago Designer Cyndi (Cindi) Chan's Trench On Yesterday's Oprah. Second City Style Fashion Blog


OK, so Oprah’s people mis-spelled Cyndi’s name. It’s Cyndi Chan, not Cindi Chan! However, we are proud to sell it at Second City Store!

Description from

Danielle’s new look is great for an interview and once she gets the job.

The fit-and-flare satin trench coat is a great evening look that
Danielle can use after she lands the job. "When you’re wearing clothes
in the office, you have to think about versatility. It has to work from
the office to the evening," Adam says.

Underneath the coat is Danielle’s interview suit—a jacket over a shift
dress. The dress has some stretch to it, which is great for traveling.
"Everyone should have a shift dress in their wardrobe. It really is the
perfect little black dress," he says. "You can dress it up. You can
dress it down. It’s really very easy and proper."

"You look like a different person to me," Oprah says. "For goodness’ sakes, you have the job as far as I’m concerned."

The coat is a dress coat and is not meant to be a rain-trench. However, word has it the spring ’08 version will be waterproof!

Ori’en satin long trench coat by Cindi (Cyndi) Chan retails for $350 and is available at

You can only purchase the coat at Macy’s on State Street in Chicago. The only place to buy it online is Second City Store.
