[THE LIFE OF THE ARTIST IS AT THE HEART OF THE DESIGN]
LISA VON TANG delivers 'Casual Opulence' in east-meets-west style. The Asian influence in the designs reflect Lisa's mixed heritage, with a Chinese mother and German father. The vision of an empowered, courageous woman is also central to her work.
Lisa Von Tang's first brand, CHI CHI VON TANG was launched in 2015, and quickly grew a cult following in Singapore and across the region. It was created as an ode to the Warrior Spirit, and 'street luxury' was in its DNA. Lauded in Harper's BAZAAR, Tatler, L'Officiel, ELLE, Esquire, Marie Claire and Paper Magazine, the brand was quickly embraced by fans and industry leaders alike.
Following on this success, Lisa created her eponymous brand in 2017, to more closely follow her artist's journey. While CHI CHI VON TANG is more masculine in energy ('yang'), Lisa Von Tang explores a more nuanced, magical 'yin' side. She created CHI CHI as a "superhero muse" but also wanted to explore le mystère féminin. The result is a line that seamlessly blends power and sensuality.
Born in Canada, Lisa settled in Singapore and has lived in Singapore for the past ten years. She began sketching fashion designs when she was a child, but decided to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science, while traveling the world and gathering inspiration. Upon graduating, Lisa worked at advertising giant Ogilvy & Mather, and started a multi-label boutique called Gnossem. With accumulated experience and inspiration, Lisa launched her fashion brand at the age of 28.
"This is about expressed, beautiful, badass, spirits. I believe we are all co-creators in this exquisite life."
