On Monday night, Selfridges paid host to none other than the current golden boy of fashion, Alexander Wang. The 25 year old had touched down at the ultra hip department store not only to check out his new pop-up store, but also to be interviewed live by Colin McDowell for the Sunday Times Style's 'In Conversation With' series. With an existing army of fans consisting of teens, young 20 something and upwards, the predominantly Wang-attired teenage audience was a surprise turnout. He spoke about his signature 'model off duty' look which he confirmed were indeed inspired by Erin Wasson but insists that "Erin is more of a friend than a muse- I think that word is out-dated, and I never use it myself."
He spoke of the similarities between the dress sense of Londoners and that of New Yorkers- skinny jeans, biker jackets and boots- very much a look that Wang is become known for. The atmosphere must have been so electric because when the crowd was asked to offer up their own questions, one zealous fan simply stated "My friends just wanted me to tell you they think.... you're awesome!" We do too Mr Wang, so please keep the fabulousness coming!
