Born in the USA, Alexander King Chen has built his brand from scratch, while simultaneously hosting two seasons of his own Reality Show [Rich and Famous] with his sister celebrity photographer Shing-I Chen, voted best dressed by Tatler and West East People, voted as #1 most eligible bachelor and collaborated on countless projects. Chen re-emphasizes, "this is my endeavor, it is time I bridged fashion and social conscience together thru my mediums."
An Italian article writes, “During Taipei IN Style..., we met, the volcanic designer Alexander King Chen. Why volcanic? Well, because he embodies the energy that a certain slice of China is transmitting: want to do and the ability to understand the flow of global culture, but especially not one complaint… Alexander King Chen..., has a totally different approach to the profession; the myth of the couturier did not even touch his head…
His approach is direct and precise; he knows the entire supply chain and the international market because he has worked, from retail to product design, have dreams and goals clearly defined. He grew up in Los Angeles, studied at St. Martins, worked in Paris, worked with Versace, Proenza Schouler, Estee Lauder and many others. He loves his job, now has a brand that bears his name and the Chinese stars worship him, but it has not gone to his head, instill says that fashion is a business like any other, everything makes sense only if you learn...” Intervista di Fulvio Ravagnani
Alexander King Chen is not just a collection of meticulously handcrafted "couture" pieces, his personalized collection tells a riveting story. Since losing both of his parents, Chen embarks on a journey to give back and to use his designs to artistically express his vision and social conscience. Through his masterful draping and cutting techniques, he designs garments and works of art to create awareness and drive change in behavioral mindset for the betterment of our global environment.
To do what he does, Chen no longer believes in selling his collections. He expresses, "I wouldn't be able to create these pieces if I had to sell them. Screw sales, this is my time to give back. This is my time to create, to join so many selfless individuals out there, who is willing to put making money aside and to give back."
Chen's devotion to dedicate his collection to great causes does not just stop here. He recently finished a film project with acclaimed director/cinematographer Hayesbros called "Inhuman Love". An ultra-chic and glamorous film about saving earth before we run out of time, launching June 2020.
