After attending the famed Parson’s School of Design in New York, Alexander Wang launched his own label. The collection began predominately in knitwear, represented by six unisex silhouettes. By spring 2007, it had evolved into a full ready-to-wear womenswear line and the collection was shown for the first time on the runway for Autumn/Winter 2007. In 2008, Wang was declared the winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award, with Diane von Furstenberg becoming his mentor. Now a household name, Alexander Wang has stores worldwide. The brand is known for its refined yet grunge-cool sensibility, creating sleek tailoring, must-have bags and relaxed separates with injections of sports-luxe.- less
