Oh, she is divinely chic.

She used to be a jewellery designer too, does anyone have more pics of her designs?

She was always listed in one of the best-dressed international jetsetters and famous for her thorough collection on vintage Mario Fortuna dresses ( who I beleive inspired Issey Miyake enormously later on), once dated Richard Gere shortly before she died from AIDS.

comparing to other Studio 54 fixtures, I personally find her refreshing and breezy style-wise and personality-wise ( she was famous for her candid, straightforward manner towards her fame and fortune). it's sad China Chow doesn't live up to her legacy, at all. ( despite being a very pretty girl, China doesn't seem having that "IT" factor her late mother engaged.)

Thanks for the lovely pics, Thomas. I am glad Tina Chow's legacy is recognized by younger generation.

I think the sister-in-law must be Tsai-Chin Chow,who 's recently appeared in in Memoirs of A Geisha and The Interpreter.and the father of michael chow was very very famous in china,his name is zhou Xin Fang ,he is one of the greatest Peking Opera actor.

I feel very fortuned to have met Tina Chow in Hong Kong.
It was in my friend's shop in TST Kowloon. A shop called RED.
As usual, Tina was in her lengendary outfit. White t-shirt and men's v-neck cardigan. She was shopping in the shop!!! I was mesmerized with her beauty ,elegance and grace. I think the year was 1987.

Does anyone have any more pictures of her? Sofia Coppola listed her as her fashion icon in Vanity Fair.

It's very hard to find pictures of her, but look out for Andy Warhol's books... she's been photographed with him very often.
