Known for his bold prints and signature silhouettes, Julian Chang has become one of fashion's most celebrated designers to emerge from Miami. Born and raised in Lima, Peru he moved to America and graduated from the Miami International University of Art and Design with a BA in Fashion Design. During school he underwent internships illustrating for magazines and free-lancing design for women's and men's fashions, and swimwear. After graduating he became assistant designer for a large manufacturer, and within eight months was named Head Designer.
This rapid advancement allowed him to launch his own label, with a focus on glamorous evening wear creating one-of-a-kind items that found their way onto Miami’s boldface names as well as celebrities such as Madonna, Gloria Estefan, Paris Hilton, and Janet Jackson, who have all donned Julian Chang designs.
Inspired by Miami's lifestyle and travel, Julian has received numerous awards and accolades including Miami Fashion Week’s “Prêt-a- Porter Designer of the Year,” The Ebenezer Award of Honor World Fashion in Korea, VOGUE LaTam’s “Designer’s Choice Award,” Cadillac’s “Luxury Lifestyle Award,” and The Key to The City of Miami Beach. Women's Wear Daily selected Chang as the "Up and Coming Ready-to-Wear Designer to Watch".
Julian opened his first boutique in Miami’s Upper East Side neighborhood in 2009, and has an atelier where much of the line is made in Miami’s Little River neighborhood.
Today Julian Chang has grown into an international brand that offers in-demand women's apparel and is highlighted in over 600 high-end boutiques across the United States as well as internationally.
