Parisa Wang is the founder and CEO of her namesake handbag brand PARISA WANG. The brand is notable for its iconic bracelet bag with signature ring buckle, gathering national attention on WWD, Vogue, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan, among numerous other publications. Refinery 29 credited Parisa Wang for bringing back the wristlet trend from the early 2000s and transforming it into a signature style. Its stock lists include global retailers Shopbop, Bloomingdales, and high-end designer boutiques such as Five Story, Stanley Korshak, Reformation, My Boon, Tomorrowland, among others.
Wang grew up in urban China where arts were seen as a waste of time. She secretly took painting classes while in college, and upon graduation, decided to follow her true calling at Parsons School for Design in 2012, where she learned how to harness her passionate inspiration into tangible objects. Her first handbag design, the Addicted bracelet bag, was inspired by Wang’s own love story and encourages women to wear their heart on their sleeve. From then on, each bag is named romantic emotions on the path to be your ‘love at first sight’.
