cocotrish about patricia chang

Hello! I am a Korean-American designer, who is currently based in New York City, holding a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, with a concentration in graphic design. In 2008, I entered the fashion industry at the blooming couture house, Marchesa. Since then I freelanced for various designers through 2012.

In 2010 I met my husband, Hank Wu, and in April 2012 we happily married. Soon after, Patricia Chang was founded in 2012, a namesake line of whimsical handbags & other fashion ventures. In 2014 we welcomed our very animated son, Chase Wu, and then our little one, Hugo Wu, in 2017.

In 2016, this lifestyle blog was created! Here, I shared everything from outfit inspirations, fashion and beauty tips, travel stories, food spots, to kids and the journey of motherhood. It inspired me to even add a few collaborations with other brands including women's shoes, baby bibs and illustrations which you can find here!

β€œI hope my designs and photos will inspire confidence, and, above all, a sense of playfulness and adventure!” -2016

Fast forward to 2019. Fully embracing and enjoying my role as a mother, lifestyle influencer, and entrepreneur, I am so excited to announce a meaningful Brick and Mortar presence! It has come to fruition by becoming the proud new owner of Kidville Upper West Side! Thank you for allowing me to spread joy, love and positivity to our next generation everyday!
