Shannon's Design Mission
Shannon Reed's objective is to reinterpret the uniform into modern dress by injecting a contemporary approach to her designs. The uniform is an essential component of a variety of professions, but it does not have to be devoid of style. Call it Utility Chic - Shannon's designs allow chefs to wear clothing that embodies their personal sense of style while also delivering on innovation in utility, form and function.
About Utility Chic Designs
Shannon's chef jackets and uniforms are made using multi-functional, high technology fabrics from Japan, Italy, and Switzerland - embedded with advanced finishes for durability, stain resistance, and wicking.
High performance stretch fabrics repel moisture and dirt on the outside, while transporting moisture away from the body on the inside. In addition, industrial snaps, zippers and grommets provide a fresh and unique finish to her modern silhouettes and unique designs.
To maintain the highest quality standards, the Shannon Reed collection is manufactured in small factories in the United States.
Every detail of the product is carefully considered, from the selection of fabrics, to the exactness of the stitching, to the placement of the label. Read more
