What’s next?

2011 was a great year for Ming Wang. I was amazed at all the new developments and growth, both internally and externally, that Ming Wang has had. I love to share so here are some highlights of 2011:

Ming Wang, The Company

Expansion: For those who don’t know, Ming Wang’s parent company is based in Dallas, TX (where we ship out all your merchandise from!), and the corporate showroom is located in New York, NY (which also houses the marketing department!). Both offices saw an increase in employees this year, resulting in a need for an extension office in New York! Just down the hall from our NY Showroom is now an additional office dedicated to design.

I Am…Ming Wang: A new initiative established to strengthen bonds with our retail partners, by inviting them to tour our Dallas warehouse and participate in our seasonal photoshoots. Is your store owner featured this season?

Social Media           

Facebook: Although we’ve had our Facebook account for over a year (and our Twitter too!), our page didn’t really kick off until this year, when new content and monthly contests began. A quick shoutout to all our retail partners (Von Maur, The Bridge Boutique, La Grande Dame, Morgan Fitzgerald’s, The Ladies Shoppe) who have held Facebook contests with us so far!

Tumblr: Everyone’s doing it, and so are we! Ming Wang’s first blog launched in June, with topics that have ranged from styling tips, to behind the scenes at Ming Wang events or trunk shows, and now even guest bloggers! Be sure to keep a look out for new and exciting things to come on the blog front in 2012!

Full Figure Fashion Week: In June, Ming Wang and Toula had the chance to show the Fall collection to the plus size community right in NYC!

NewDay Services: NewDay Services is an organization that supports distressed families and equips both parents and children with the emotional support and education they need to overcome hardships and become successful. We are so honored to help support an organization whose ideals mirror our own in giving – not only women – but both women and their families the confidence to thrive. In October, Ming Wang was the proud sponsor for their first annual fashion show.

 

Texas Conference for Women – MORE Magazine: Held last month in Houston, TX, Ming Wang had the opportunity to showcase some new Spring 2012 pieces and our classic LBD. If you missed it, check out our recap and photos from the previous issue.

Don’t think Ming Wang is slowing down! We have so many more events and projects for 2012. My lips are seal as to what they are but make sure to sign up for Ming Wang’s Newsletter to get exclusive sneak peeks.

Full Figure Fashion Week!

From June 16 through 18, a fashion week took place in New York City like no other. A fashion extravaganza for the real woman: the full figured woman.

Full Figured Fashion Week was hosted in NYC by DeVoe Signature Events; it was a time and place for different designers, retailers, business owners and even consumers to get in on the latest fashions of the plus size fashion industry. And Ming Wang was there to witness it all!

We met with many great real women who came to observe and get to know the Ming Wang line. Not only did the women enjoy seeing so many outlets of plus size fashion, but we also enjoyed getting to know them and all their concerns. Here at Ming Wang, that’s what we’re all about – the real woman! So we really wanted to attend and take advantage of this opportunity to hear from all the lovely ladies out there who want to be fashion forward, no matter what size they are!
