The Miami-based fashion designer, whose fans include Gloria Estefan, Paulina Rubio, and Paris Hilton, has opened his own store, an opulent space with an old elevator cage for a changing room. Chang, a young talent with an eye toward tropical flair, stocks amethyst necklaces, jeweled flats, printed silk skirts, boldly colored embossed leather clutches, and Ashley Dearborn sandals. Pick up a silk charmeuse wrap skirt with a purple flower pattern, which is comfortable and flashy enough to turn heads at the pool.
Tip: Chang also owns Steam on Sunset (5840 Sunset Drive; 305/669-9991), a destination for more casual clothes from labels like Martine Sitbon and Y3.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
