Alexander Wang: Digital Design

No one in his or her right mind believes that a fashion designer works all alone, sketching away in an ivory tower. Alexander Wang, for one, is currently crowd sourcing, calling on his network of stylists, photographers, fashion icons, friends, and more to create an image, pattern, or photo on their Galaxy Note II that will then be used to design limited-edition bag. Proceeds from the bag will go to Art Start. W has the exclusive video.
