You might think the bold geometric patterns, flowing silks and vibrant hues of his pieces resemble works of art — and with good reason. Peruvian designer Julian Chang is also a natural born painter.
Chang initially rejoiced in his ability to create an image from a white canvas that could touch people. However, he relinquished his paint- brush for the challenging, fast-pace environment of the fashion industry. He studied fashion at Miami’s International Fine Arts College, but art was never far from his mind.
