Innovators: Alexander Wang


Occupation Creative Director at Balenciaga/ Fashion designer

Awards: CFDA Fashion Fund Award
Labels Alexander Wang, T by Alexander Wang, Balenciaga
One of the foremost designers of our generation, Wang has cemented his place in the highly competitive world of women’s fashion. He was recently appointed as the Creative Director for the French Fashion House, Balenciaga. Despite overwhelming doubts concerning whether or not this 29 year old American designer was suited for the position Wang put on an amazing debut show this past February. Wang’s new line has been described as a perfect mixture between edge and elegance as well as an appropriate bow to Balenciaga himself.
What makes Wang so particularly influential is his ability to take nineties inspired styles and blend them with modern French chic creating a work of art greater than the sum of its parts. Although Wang is completely committed to his position at Balenciaga, he will continue to work independently on the fashion house he started after dropping out of fashion school as a sophomore back in 2007.
