Foremost Miami fashion designer, Julian Chang, launched his name-sake line’s Summer 2019 collection earlier this month.
The Fall/Winter 2019 collection features tropical prints as well as jewels tone colors set against a background of black. Look for subtle nods to the 70s and touches like ruffle sleeves, retro inspired prints, and sequins. Fabrics include the flattering and comfortable stretch material the line is known for, as well as silks and delicate lace.
As the designer explains his inspiration for the Fall/Winter 2019 collection, “For me, it was about feminine lines paired with a glamorous touch. I wanted a contrast between playful and sexy to create a timeless look with new dimensions and balances.”
The collection by Julian Chang is available online at Julianchang.com and in select boutiques such as the W South Beach in Miami, Novecento in Los Angeles, California, as well as 600 high-end boutiques throughout the world including the Caribbean, UAE, Mexico, South America including Bogota and Santiago de Chile, England, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, and Croatia.
In Miami, where the clothing is proudly made, the entire line is available at the Julian Chang flagship boutique, located at: 7246 Biscayne Boulevard in Miami’s burgeoning Upper East Side.
