DESIGNER: MINAN WONG
Minan Wong is a New York City-based designer whose elegant designs, constructed using sustainable materials, exude a youthful exuberance and convey the strength within every woman. With 18 years in the industry, Minan Wong is an awarded designer, winner of the UNESCO and Felissimo International Award, and designs featured at the Louvre in Paris and covered by Women’s Wear Daily and The Daily News. After working for Donna Karan and Eileen Fisher, Minan decided to launch her own brand, Minan Wong.
“When I decided to make my own collection, I brought my personal journey into the details. When I design, I get a surge of energy. I love clothing that exudes a vibrant, youthful aura and can support the strength of a woman. The crisp touch of a brand-new dress. The exhilarating breath you take before meeting your dream client. The strut that begins when you catch a reflection of yourself in the window, rocking that jacket. Great design starts with sustainable materials. Whenever possible, items are made using eco-friendly elements like organic cotton, Tencel, recycled wool and recycled PET. All pieces are made in the US for fair wages and to support the local economy, because empowerment is not just for the people who can afford to buy our clothes!”
DESIGNER: KRISTI VOSBECK
After a succession of jobs in the fashion industry, immersing herself in modeling, styling, and design interning, Parsons graduate Kristi Vosbeck made her move and formed KRISTI VOSBECK LLC on March 2009. She represents the new voice of couture high fashion in legacy (vintage) designs with a fresh, edgy twist. Each design is a unique work of art that pairs elegance with her special brand of creativity.
Kristi is a visionary, who is influenced by different cultures, and invokes her memories of Paris, Greece and Madrid with intricate designs that are strikingly classic, in the most opulent, luxurious fabrications, and couture attention to detail. She is inspired by Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney. KRISTI VOSBECK is part of a new breed of innovative young designers, with an eye for glamour, focusing on the classic beauty of the female form. She envisions women who have a passion for fashion, at any age, and sees her dresses being worn to parties, galleries, and very special occasions, by women who want to flaunt and flirt.

From wedding gowns, to special events, you can work together to achieve the look you desire. 100% of her production takes place in the Garment District of New York City, taking pride in supporting local businesses and contributing to stable jobs in our community.
