AlexanderWangTheBigBang Alexander Wang Profiled By Barneys

Alexander Wang is profiled and interviewed in Barney’s weekly “Big Bang” column, which is dedicated to the early days of designers the department store is fond of. In Wang’s case, the relationship is special because they were the first big retailer to recognize his talent and provide him with a springboard. Here’s Wang’s response to one of the questions–as is often the case, an unwillingness to be deterred was part of the DNA for his label’s eventual success:

Barneys:  So, who was the first to pick up those wares in the suitcase?

Wang: In the beginning, we tried calling every showroom to represent us, nobody would return our calls or give us even a meeting.  So, we took the collection ourselves to the tradeshow and signed Barneys on the first day.

And on another note, how about the fabulous black and white shot of Wang used to accompany the article?? We’ve always thought he was a looker, but wow, he’s almost alien-beautiful in this image!
