EMV, Fulfillment Among Major Topics At Celerant Client Conference Celerant Technology Chinese Laundry's Path To Omni-Channel Commerce by Celerant Technology | December 18 2014 As trendy women's footwear goes, Chinese Laundry is a brand at the top of its game. What began as a wholesale footwear manufacturing company in 1971 has blossomed into a hot, fast-growing and high-fashion footwear banner, its growth fueled by five west coast brick-and-mortar boutiques and a global e-commerce banner. The company still manufactures and sells its shoes through a host of department stores like Nordstrom, high-end boutiques across the country, and partnership with online upstarts including Zappos, Amazon, and shoes.com.
