Sandy Liang Makes Skirts for Everyone

Sandy Liang Makes Skirts for Everyone

Story by Kristen Bateman / Photography by Andrew Boyle

Downtown cool designer Sandy Liang has achieved a cult-following for her signature fleece jackets and playful pieces (tampon print dresses and rainbow shearling coats, anyone?).

The Parsons grad has taken inspiration from everything under the sun when it comes to downtown NYC culture: Chinatown grandmas and skater boys included. This season, she took over a raw space on Canal Street and had models stage two runway shows and a presentation in between. And while the designer has styled her womenswear pieces on men in the past (chef and founder of Mission Chinese, Danny Bowien, often models for her line), today was the most devotion she's shown menswear yet.

Male models were styled in shearling coats, leopard fleeces, jumpsuits, t-shirts and one pleated skirt short piece. Meanwhile, Sandy Liang's womenswear retained some of the same signatures: pretty, playful dresses, fleeces and more.
