Danny Tang is a Malaysian designer, living and working in London. He spent his childhood and initial training in Kuala Lumpur excelling as the youngest student in the SML fashion academy, K.L. He began working from the age of 16, collaborating with the Malaysian Designer, Lester Wong.
Danny moved to London in 2004 and attended the London College of Fashion and Instituto Marangoni. After finishing his studies he worked with designers Nana Aganavish and Ana Sekularac as well as carrying out successful freelance design and styling projects.
In 2009 he launched his own label. Initially this consisted of a collection of accessories that were created to add interest and glamour to the “simple black dress”. This range of shrugs, collars, belts and neck pieces were immediately picked up by leading stylists, adorning the pages of Vogue and being requested and worn by celebrities including Grace Jones and Anna Friel. Many prestigious stores were keen to be among the first to see these amazing works of art which led then to Danny launching a full collection at London Fashion Week.
His debut collection for A/W 2010 was shown as part of the high profile Vauxhall Fashion Scout show in Covent Garden. Renowned for showcasing talented, emerging designers the VFS Danny Tang runway show was a huge success. Packed to the rafters with Malaysian dignitaries as well as the fashion pack, this show put Danny Tang firmly on the map.
