The Designer

Being a true New Yorker with her multicultural backgrounds, Angela Gao brings her unique Asian cultural roots to modern city dressing like no other. Gao's philosophy draws from her background in Chinese Martial Arts and film (her credits include Trainer and Assistant Choreographer in Academy Award winner, ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ and the critically acclaimed Danish independent film, 'Fighter' as well as the recent Hollywood box office hit ‘karate Kid’). Her designs are marked by fluid lines and breezy silhouettes that capture the beauty of fabric in motion and expression of movement. Says Gao, "I believe our clothing offers women the freedom of self-expression, confidence, and style that is a necessity for balancing today's high-intensity lifestyles." This holistic approach draws from the Eastern philosophy of "enhancing one's strong points and concealing one's weaknesses".

Her fashion talent was honored at Parsons where her acclaimed thesis collection led to a nomination as Designer of the Year in 2008 and an personal invitation from Donna Karan to design her Urban Zen Collection. Gao and her collections has been Featured in WWD, Vogue,, Daily Candy, Essence Magazine, among many others. Gao Operated her own standalone boutique in Park slope from 2009 to 2014 during this time, she was also selected to partake in the pilot year of DENYC- a Mini- MBA scholarship program established in 2012 as one of Bloomberg’s six initiatives sponsored by the NYC Economics Chapter and FIT to encourage small business growth with investment grants. Currently, Gao teaches at Parsons the New School for Design While developing the next chapter of her brand- a life-style/holistic initiative incorporating fashion, healthy living, and alternative medicine.
