Alexander Wang

The directive in Alex’s vision is to uphold your own individuality, and break the conventional idea of a predictable “uniform.” A tee shirt and jeans can be just as sexy and stylish as an evening gown. The ways in which his clothes are unabashedly styled and worn are as important to him as the clothes themselves. Alex’s love for contrasts is reflected throughout the collection with juxtaposing notes of street and luxe, sexy versus androgyny - a vagabond meets a street-smart modernist. 

A Native Californian, Alex was born and raised in San Francisco and has a Chinese-American heritage. At the age of 18, he moved to New York City where he attended Parsons School of Design. He launched his full women’s collection in 2007, selling to over 200 stores. Now at 30, Alex resides in lower Manhattan, where there is never a shortage of inspiration in music, life, reality and culture. In 2008, Alexander Wang received top honors as the recipient of the Vogue/CFDA Fashion Fund; and in 2009, he was recognized by his peers when he was announced as the winner of the Swarovski Womenswear Designer of the Year.
