Alexander Wang Wins CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund

Last night Alexander Wang took the coveted prize of 200,00 to grow his business and a year of mentoring. I've said it before and I'll say it again, this kid is confident. For his Spring 08 show, instead of tireless straining over the details of the collection he chartered a bus complete with a stripper pole and partied the night away, because his collection was done a month early. His collections are smart, energetic, and youthful. He approach to stylizing streetwear is aimed at the, well, Meenal Mistry says it best, 'the kind of go-getter who likes to cap off an all-night party with a pickup game at the West 4th Street courts.' Word, mama. That's what I'm talking about. Let's take a look at some choice cuts from Wang's Spring 2009 collection. Followed by a video of the night's events which were hosted by none other than John Galliano and muse Charlize Theron.

John Galliano's closing statement made my day. Check this out.
