Finally! As fans of Alexander Wang, we are excited to hear that the designer is set to open his first London store, situated in Mayfair, early next year (2015).
You will find the new London store on Albermarle Street, stocking the entire Wang collection. This is the start of aggressive global expansion from the New York based designer.
Alexander Wang UK will sit on the same street as Amanda Wakeley, Paul Smith and Garrard & Co.
At age 19, Alexander Wang moved to New York City to attend Parsons. In 2005, after two years at Parsons, he decided to pursue the launch of his own label, which predominantly began with a knitwear collection. In Fall 2007, Wang presented a complete women’s ready-to-wear collection on the New York catwalk for the first time, to critical acclaim. He won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2008, an honor accompanied by a $20,000 award to expand one’s business.
