Alexander Wang tops annual list of highest-paid fashion designers
In 2018 it looked like the fashion designer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (January 16) that Wang is the highest-paid fashion designer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between December 2019 and December 2020, a nearly $50 million lead over his closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The American fashion designer has an estimated net worth of $245 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Wang Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “San Francisco Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwang - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Alexander) and a fashion line called “Alexander Wang Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Alexander fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
