In 1985, Rochelle Huppin, student at The Culinary Institute of America (CIA), decided she needed a pair of chef pants to make her student uniform more comfortable, stylish and better fitting. She decided to design a pair of baggier chef pants from 100-percent cotton fabric and continued to wear different versions over the years. Huppin began Chefwear in 1990 when she decided to step away from her life as a pastry chef and focus on the ever growing need for better chef uniforms after receiving positive feedback and requests for her new chef pants. Since its inception, Chefwear has grown over the years as one of the top companies in the culinary apparel industry. It revolutionized chef fashion by keeping up with trends and working directly with chefs all over the world to create items that worked in the kitchen and fulfilled their needs. Now, Chefwear offers the largest selection of clothing options from pants and jackets to a variety of different accessories and has become the first choice among more leading chefs. The Chefwear line is available for ordering through its catalog, online or directly through a customer service representative.
