Alexander Wang
 
Category: Women, Men,


A native Californian, Alexander Wang was born and raised in San Francisco with a Chinese-American heritage. At the age of 18, Alexander Wang moved to New York where he attended Parsons School of Design. By his sophomore year, Wang was already designing the first collection of his Alexander Wang label, which was predominately knits. He launched his first full women's collection in 2007. In 2008, Alexander Wang received top honors as the recipient of the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund.

"Anyone can get all dressed up and glamorous, but it is how people dress in their off days, that is the most intriguing." It's during this in between, wayward days when a person's true style emerges from their everyday life, forming the basis of Alexander Wang's collection, where clean, classic luxurious and refined silhouettes are contrasted with an urban street edge. Alexander Wang's love for contrasts is reflected throughout the collection with juxtaposing note of street and luxe, sexy versus androgyny - vagabond meets street smart modernist.
