Cho Cheng is moving at a pretty good clip for a designer who graduated from Parsons The New School for Design just two years ago.
He has an atelier on Manhattan’s East 63rd Street, a handful of freestanding signature boutiques in China and celebrity clients. In addition, the designer — who is preparing for his first runway show in the tents in February — will sponsor the 2009 Young Friends of Save Venice Ball and is wholesaling his collection in the U.S. Until now, the Chinese-born designer has relied on word-of-mouth recommendations from his well-heeled friends and clients to sell his collection.
"You start one way as a baby, but why shouldn't you be able to choose your own path as opposed to culturally people telling you which way to go?" - Thom Browne at his men's spring 2018 show, where he celebrated gender fluidity. #pfw #wwdmens (📷: @delphineachard)
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
