A New Era: Alexander Wang Is Named CEO & Chairman of Alexander Wang Inc.

The ex-Balenciaga creative director remains the creative director too.

When Alexander Wang left Balenciaga to assume a larger role at Alexander Wang, Inc., he commented, “I am looking forward to taking my own brand to its next level of growth.” Now those words are realized – on June 28, the designer was named CEO & Chairman, in addition to his creative director role at Alexander Wang, Inc.

The announcement comes after numerous restructures: in May, president Rodrigo Bazan stepped down and now the designer’s mother, CEO Ying Wang, and sister-in-law, chairwoman Aimie Wang, depart. They remain shareholders and board members.

Wang’s increased role is the latest development in a larger trend where creative directors are taking on more roles including Hedi Slimane, who was the creative-business guru behind YSL. The announcement’s impact on next season’s collections? We’ll have to wait and see.
