ERBERT CHONG, a multifaceted designer renowned for shaping a "gracefully edgy" look. He combines structure and geometry with modern and feminine details, as well as sensual and sexual energy. He didn’t always know he wanted to be a fashion designer. A chance encounter in New York City with celebrated designer Alvin Valley sparked his ensuing obsession for everything related to fashion and design. Under Valley’s mentorship, Chong enrolled in Parsons The New School for Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology, and honed his craft by working up the ranks within the industry by day, and making custom wedding gowns and cocktail dresses by night.
Within a few short years, Erbert found himself in Paris at the world’s oldest fashion school, l'Ecole Supérieure des Arts et techniques de la Mode (ESMOD), specializing in leather goods and costume jewellery. Before graduating from ESMOD, Erbert had created artwork for Stierblut GmbH, a high-end fashion store in Munich; designed a jewellery exhibition at Beijing’s Prince Kung’s Mansion; and scouted top fashion talent and created brand strategies for labels under the LVMH group, including Givenchy, Celine, Marc Jacobs, and Loewe.

His recognition had since exploded globally and he was awarded as one of the emerging Asian creative talents in Perspective’s 40 Under 40.
