Hi, my name is Chris Walker.  I have been working in the Vietnam Garment Industry since 2008.  My expertise is advising fashion start-ups.  I also serve established brands looking for factories making shoes, socks, bags, hats etc.  Vietnam is small and my network of factories is wide.  Read my books or contact me to begin the journey of bringing you fashion brand dream alive with low cost manufacturing in Vietnam.  Schedule a consultation at

I was born in Los Angeles, California in 1970 and grew up in Germany.  After graduating from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, California with a physics degree, I studied Spanish for a year in Madrid, Spain.  Then I joined the US Navy as an electronic technician serving six years on a nuclear powered submarine based out of Honolulu, Hawaii.  My experience took me to the Gulf of Mexico where I worked on offshore drilling rigs for another six years.  Finally, I settled down in Vietnam to start a family and learn about apparel manufacturing overseas from the inside out.
