Spotlight on Alexander Wang

"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, forming the basis of Alexander
Wang's collection...where clean, classic, luxurious and refined silhouettes are introduced to an urban street provocative ideal...Alex's love for contrasts is reflected throughout the collection with juxtaposing notes of street and luxe, sexy versus androgyny, and where vagabond meets a street-smart modernist.

Alexander Wang is inspiring me. He is the quintessential fashion prodigy. Old news to fashionistas, who attend and ride the news of the MB fashion week, but I am just loving this kid and his perfection of chic, street, comfy, airport attire. You know, you want to look good but be so comfy. You want to have style, but be yourself. I love the use of black of course, but the edgy sensibility makes me want it all.

Alexander Wang was the winner of the prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund prize, netting 200K some inside mentoring access and a major jolt to his career. A newbie he is not, while attending Parsons and some pretty sweet internships, he launched his own line in his sophomore year and won the attention of the masses from models to socialites. Now 24, living on the Lower Eastside of Manhattan, he is selling to more than 150 boutiques and retail stores internationally. I predict big things from this boy. Oh, his parents must be so proud. He is the one to watch.
“Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future.” Coco Chanel
Alexander Wang has taken possession and is running full force into the future of fashion.
