Designer of the Week - Alexander Wang



If you have not heard his name then most probably you've been living like a hermit these past few months.

"Anyone can get all dressed up and glamorous, but it is how people dress in their off days, that are the most intriguing. It's during these in between, wayward days when a person's true style emerges from their everyday life." This is the basis of Alexander Wang's clean, classic, luxurious and refined aesthetic. Alex believes that holding one's individuality is they key to having great style. A basic tee shirt and jeans can be as sexy and stylish as an evening gown.

Alex was born and raised in San Francisco with Chinese-American family heritage. Alex moved to New York at the age of 18 to study at the prestigious Parsons Design School. By his sophomore year Alex was already designing his first collection under the label Alexander Wang.

He was recently recognized by his peers when he was announced as the winner of the CFDA Swarovskiu Womens Wear Designer of the Year.

Also, he recently presented his menswear collection for this year. I am so psyched about that! I'm sure I will be getting some stuff once it hits the stores. And hopefully I will be able to get a hold of his amazing shoe collection as well!

Alexander and the gorgeous Erin Wasson!!!

Here's a look into his previous collections...




He's definitely one of the brightest stars in fashion today. I can't wait to get my hands on his stuff!!! I'm glad that he's bringing street chic to the runway!
