BEHIND THE BRAND
A designer brand featuring contemporary oriental style streetwear.
Established in 2018, DAWANG is a New York-based contemporary streetwear design brand that draws influences from East and West.
DAWANG is committed to celebrating a modern interpretation of traditional Chinese aesthetics.
Chinese-born Founder Daisy Wang launched DAWANG in 2018 after taking a class on subcultures at Parsons the New School of Design, realizing that nobody was making the type of elevated Asian streetwear that she wanted to consume—comfortable, ready to wear, and not a gimmick. Having absorbed aesthetics from both American and Chinese cultures, Wang meticulously joins traditional chinoiserie apparel and Chinese fabrics with Western tailoring techniques and trends.
DAWANG finds empowerment in inviting people of all backgrounds to partake in the
beauty of #ModernChinoiserie.
