Clara Chen, Owner and Principal Designer

Established CC Soft Goods Design in 2012.

I have been working with private clients and startup companies around the U.S. and abroad in countries such as Switzerland, Kuwait and Australia on product development for several years.


Prior to CC Soft Goods Design, I worked as Design Manager for Handbags at Rafe New York, Product Designer at Samsonite and American Tourister, Design Assistant at The Sak and Elliott Lucca and an Intern at Botkier New York.

I earned my Accessories Design degree from FIT in New York City, where I was also awarded the Andrew Pizzo Award by FIT faculty.

My design portfolio has been featured on and my illustration work has appeared in Allure Magazine.
