Ming Wang, New York
Fashion Design, Textile Design & Graphic Design
My responsibilities as a freelance designer at Ming Wang include producing independent designs from inspiration to final CADs. The design process begins from research and textile creation to designing CADs and technical designs for garment techpacks.
Rough stitch placements and silhouettes

Design and Product Images
Ming-Wang aims to create statement worthy
knits and woven that can be dressed up or dressed down.
These designs I create can be played with by layering multiple pieces together or can be worn as a single piece with bold accessories.
The knit and woven patterns are one of a kind and each piece uses a different technique including intarsia, jacquards, tweeds and embroidery on knit.
Textile and CAD Devlopment
Ombre striped knit swatch
Ombre striped knit swatch pattern created on photoshop using four colors.
The original swatch's ombre effect transitions from lighter shades to darker shades.At a time, each stripe only has two colors.
The pattern is then used to create rough stitch placements on
different silhouettes before arriving at the most balanced stitch placement and silhouette combination.
Final CAD Design Options
Illustrations and CADs
'Looks' are created to merge different designs belonging to the same delivery group to arrive at a cohesive, wearable collection that can be sold to retailers for their websites and stores.
It provides a clearer picture of that season's trends and aesthetic.

placements determined by my CADs
