Alexander Wang is in full-on power mode. His Nineties-inspired, body-conscious streetwear radiates aggressive sex appeal, and Wang’s ascendance into fashion’s cool crowd is official. After collecting the 2008 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award, Wang now has his second Swarovski nod, not to mention the staunch support of the downtown, insider set, which has been on board since Wang launched a small knitwear range in 2005. Since his full women’s wear collection bowed for spring 2007, every hip young thing has been on the hunt for Wang’s mix of casual androgyny and chic party girl paraphernalia.
