Uma Wang founded her namesake label, UMA WANG, in 2009, shortly before going on to become the first Chinese designer ever featured in the European fashion calendar. The Shanghai-based brand has since established a loyal following of devotees taken by Wang’s vision of rugged elegance manifested in designs that bridge the lacuna between the ascetic and the sensual. The label’s luxe ready-to-wear—all manufactured in Italy in close collaboration with local textile mills—comes in a serene palette of neutrals, often adorned with big prints, raw edges, and immersive textures. Cherished as one of China’s most influential brands, UMA WANG expertly presents one cohesive vision season after season.
