Alfred Sung was born in 1948 in Shanghai and raised in Hong Kong. As the oldest of 8 children he dreamed of becoming an artist, although his parents did not initially approve. Over time, his father agreed to send him to Paris to study couture fashion where he graduated with first-place honors and was given an offer to study in New York at the Parson School of Design.
In 1972, Sung moved to Canada and began to build, what is now, an impressive fashion empire. By 1980, Alfred Sung had ready-to-wear men’s and women’s collections throughout the United States and Canada in stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s, Nordstrom’s and Neiman Marcus.
The development of Alfred Sung Bridal and Alfred Sung bridesmaids dresses was a part of his development plan all along, as he designed evening wear and formal dresses. His eye for timeless, clean-cut design and rich, textured materials makes him a force to be reckoned with in the wedding industry.
