WHAT TO LOVE Chiang is ambitious—she immediately opened two stores after launching her line last year—and she designs for ambitious women. Her line offers options for a spectrum of occasions, from tough-girl leather jackets to perfectly-draped dresses, as well as handbags, shoes, and accessories. It’s a one-stop shop for power-dressing.
THE DESIGNER POINT OF VIEW “Everything I design has to be something that I would want to wear myself,” says Chiang. “I want the women who wear my clothes to feel beautiful, desirable, and protected.”
