Ming Zhao Biography

Ming was born in the Hunan province of China where she spent most of her early childhood. Then shortly after her 11th birthday her parents immigrated to the U.S. and made New York City their new home. Ming enjoyed growing up in the Big Apple and quickly became interested in fashion. She attended the High School of Fashion Industries and then went on to the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) to receive her bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design. After graduating, she began modeling and was well received in a short period of time. When asked to comment on her success, Ming replied “I love modeling, but I will always remain a designer at heart”. Then with a big smile, she continued “One day I’m going to design my own fashion label – even if I’m going to be my only customer!”
