Alexander Wang Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 Collection
Alexander Wang a Taiwanese-American Fashion Designer. Raised in San Francisco during his teens and moved to New York to attend Parson’s New School of Design. He wasÂ Nominated in 2008’sÂ Council of Fashion Designers of AmericaÂ in Women’s Wear and won a USD$200,000 prize as the CDFA/Vogue (magazine)Â Fashion Fund Award winner.
His label embodies a cool casual downtown style, drawing inspiration from the 90’s, French chic, and rock grunge and always finished off with a slouchy, rolled-out-of-bed edge.
Last season he showed off a collection that broke away from his characteristic designs. Â Presenting a languid, breezy collection in almost all white, with hints of metallic, green and burnt orange. Receiving mixed reviews from critics, and even slander from New York Times JournalistÂ Cathy Horyn, saying he “was not a great designer”.
With that said, high anticipation was in the air for his new collection. Would he revert back to his old ways, or continue to try to push forward with new concepts and designs. Thankfully he has reverted back to his old style of design and it came with a bang as well as a standing ovation.
Check out video from his show giving a more in-depth look into his collection and inspiration.
