Uma Wang

Chinese designer Uma Wang creates work that is rich, bold and beloved internationally. After studying at China Textile University in Shanghai, she studied at Central Saint Martins in London. Afterwards, Uma returned to China, where her work experience in production gave her the inspiration to start making her own fabrics. She began by working solely on knitwear—now her signature. From there she expanded her designs to present a full collection, marking the start of her eponymous label, launched in 2009.

By intimately knowing her fabrics, their weight, and the way they move, Wang masterfully drapes silhouettes that have a refined ease and simplicity, allowing the exquisite and unique textiles to shine as the focal point. Traveling between her two studios located in Italy and Shanghai, her work always balances femininity and lightness with a strong avant-garde undertone. Textural, romantic, experimental, and contemporary, Uma Wang is a designer to watch for years to come.
