The designer Bible - Part 4. - Alexander Wang

Another day, another designer to talk about!

Alexander Wang is next up on our list, and let's just mention here that he's one of the youngest successful designers, at the age of 31 (!!!) he has a massive number of admirers.

California boy Wang started attending Parsons  NY at the age of 19, but 2 years later he decided to start his own label. In 2007, he presented his first complete ready-to-wear collection in New York.

After winning  20,000 $ from CFDA / Vogue to expand his business, he launched his handbag line, and in 2009, he won two prestigious awards, which meant that his efforts were recognized by his peers in the industry as well.

In 2012, Balenciaga contracted Wang as their Creative Director, and while many amazing collections were born from this cooperation, Wang left the brand this year's August, and started focusing mainly on his own brand.

He worked with H&M on their 2014 FW designer cooperation pieces, which turned out to be a huge success as well.

Mr. Wang is known for his cutting edge, clean shapes, and love for urban style. His clothes definitely have a "wow factor", so it's no wonder why he achieved the status he is in at this time.

I think he's a very good example that if you have passion for what you, and keep pushing yourself, eventually you will achieve what you want - no matter how young or old you are!
