ALEXANDER WANG is known for his edgy, somewhat masculine womenswear designs. Born in 1984, during his late teens, he lived in San Francisco. His parents are immigrants from Taiwan. At the age of 18, he moved to New York to attend the prestigious Parsons, The New School for Design, to study fashion design.
After dropping out the second year of college, he launched his first women’s ready to wear collection in 2007. The label embodies casually cool downtown style, drawing inspiration from the nineties, French chic, and rock grunge.
