Angel Chen’s Rockin Runway is an Ode to ‘Dragon Lady’ Anna May Wong

Angel Chen has made a name for herself fusing East and West, depth and lightness, audacious and demure, and her latest collection is a true testament to that. At a time where Asians have been the target of heinous attacks, representation and empowering the Asian community through its own culture, matters. Angel Chen pays homage to one that paved the way and celebrates her champions.

The muse for this season’s collection is Anna May Wong, the first Chinese-American Actress to become a Hollywood A-Lister, though typecast and given the nickname ‘Dragon Lady,’ which was inspired by roles she played. While the nickname was derogatory, it allowed for generations of Asian women after her to rise, they are: The Daughters of the Dragon. Inspired and enlightened by Anna May Wong, Angel Chen’s latest collection for both men and women features fearsome lapels, bold colors and even bolder textures-check out all the looks below!
