Born on the in 1986 and raised in Shanghai, Leonard Wong graduated from Tokyo's prestigious school Bunka Fashion College with honours in 2013. Soon after winning the 2012 Tokyo New Fashion Designer Grand Prix Award, Wong started his own company in Nihonbashi, Tokyo.

His edgy, minimalist yet powerful style captured the fashion world's eyes and have kept them hostage ever since. "I have always admired women who are strong and speak their own minds; Their elegance, strength and compassion is something I think of when designing. My true wish is for the women who wear my pieces to hear that very same message through the garments".

Leonard Wong presents at Tranoï New York for the first time in February.
