Alexander Wang's online home at alexanderwang.com is getting a new look today — its first major overhaul since launching in July 2011.
“We started e-commerce before we had our first retail store,” Wang said. “It was one of our first big ventures as a brand.” The designer described the new site as minimal, engaging, functional and easy to navigate. Currently, sales from alexanderwang.com make up 20 percent of the company’s direct-to-consumer business — but Wang expects the site to become the single-biggest contributor to the direct business by 2015. The company has 16 freestanding doors, the most recent opening was two months ago in Tokyo’s Aoyama District, as well as wholesale accounts.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
