The concept of having fun is often lost in the increasingly gatekept world of fashion. That's why speaking to Maya Wang, founder of FRIED RICE, was such an absolute delight. In every utterance, Maya’s commitment to play and truly enjoying the process of both designing and wearing garments is paramount. And her vibrant, eclectic clothing certainly mirrors her ethos: wearing clothes should be fun.
We had the opportunity to catch up with Maya in the FRIED RICE Soho store to hear about the genesis of the brand and how she thinks about design—and to play a little bit of dress up.
