Corinne Fry-Rich is the founder and chief chandler at Chantry 1975. A former special effects makeup artist and the designer of a line of handbags featured in the pages of Lucky Magazine and sold to numerous celebrities, Corinne has developed a proprietary soy/coconut wax blend from which all the company’s hand-poured candles are made. The combination creates a uniquely long-lasting, fragrance loaded candle with a very clean burn.
The idea was simple. To create high quality items that people would feel good about bringing into their homes. The items created by Corinne are like nothing else available today.
Creative Super Girl meets Mad Scientist
Corinne Fry started her artistic career at the age of 17 as a make up artist in the film and fashion industry. After working closely with a well know costume designer in Los Angeles, Corinne caught the design bug in 2000 and started Corinne Rene Handbags. The unique design combined with impeccable craftsmanship translated into immediate success for her line which was carried by Fred Segal and boutiques all over the country. Celebrities such as Fergie and Carrie Underwood were all big fans of Corinne Rene. In 2008 Lucky Magazine came calling and did a story on Corinne featuring her makeup career and success of the accessory line.
Corinne currently manages a ceramic business and using her art background and attention to detail develops custom glazes as well as color development for the ceramic industry. She spends her days in the lab mixing and formulating ceramic glaze, her nights developing custom fragrances and her weekends studying at the Institute of Art and Olfaction which helps with her inspiration for Chantry 1975.
