Alexander Wang will no doubt have a lot to say when he sits down with Alina Cho at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on June 9.
The ever-reaching designer will be the fifth guest to headline “The Atelier With Alina Cho.” Not big on public Q&As, Wang will have a lot of ground to cover in discussing his 10-year career. Only 20 when he launched his label, the designer showed his first full women’s ready-to-wear collection in the fall of 2007. In the years that followed, he racked up such accolades as designing for Balenciaga, introducing men’s wear, accepting the 2011 CFDA Best Accessory Designer of the Year Award, the first American to collaborate with H&M and earning the 2013 Fashion Group International’s 2013 Fashion Star award. He has 26 Alexander Wang boutiques and 700 retail stockists around the globe.
Wang, one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential people, will also offer his take on the seismic shifts underfoot in the fashion landscape and the not-always-easy-to-define creative process. Tickets begin at $40.
