Edwing D’Angelo is a fashion designer, entrepreneur and uncompromising champion for empowering individual expression, especially for the traditionally marginalized. Born in Colombia to generations of fabric artists, D’Angelo cultivated a childhood fascination with fabric and craftsmanship into a two-decade plus career in the fashion industry. His creative persistence and commitment to his gifts have yielded mentions in such iconic industry bibles as VOGUE, Women’s Wear Daily, and the New York Times. D’ Angelo’s sophisticated yet whimsical designs have been sought after by such boldface names as Patti Labelle, Tyra Banks, Lil Uzi Vert and Karol G, showing the intergenerational appeal of his gifts. The Edwing D’Angelo Atelier in historic Harlem is an open concept retail and workspace that also serves as a beacon for all those who see themselves in fashion even when fashion has not seen them.
