Undoubtedly one of my favorite new designers, Alexander Wang has certainly taken the industry by storm. At the age of 24, the CFDA Fashion Award nominee is quite the inspiration. He moved to NYC from his hometown of San Francisco at the age of 18 and attended Parsons School of Design; he also snagged internships at Marc Jacobs, Derek Lam and Teen Vogue.
In 2006, Wang launched his first collection under the name Alexander Wang his sophomore year and automatically grabbed the attention of everyone from fashions power players, 'of the minute' it girls and the fashion obsessed kids of the world.
To even begin to write a list of his fashion follers would be pointless, ANYONE you can think of, love his collections..
I came to know of his amazing design sense through a favorite model of mine Erin Wasson who is also Alexander's muse and runway stylists, she’s been a favorite model of mine for quite some time and her personal style has always been flawless.
Its no wonder that Alexander and Erin's vision of style would meet eye-to-eye, with his seemingly pure aesthetic Wang's collections have a bit of a street style edge mixed with the 'off duty model look'. From his tank dresses and fabulous cardigans to leather fringe sandals and studded leather bags, the look of his collections screams edgy, but clean and CHIC. I adore his tanks, their so light and comfortable. I'm definitely looking forward to the collections to come..
