Leong Leong is the designer for a new women’s club in New York City, founded by Audrey Gelman and Lauren Kassan. The Wing is a home base for women on their way from work, excercise, home, and going out. Currently, the marketplace includes gyms, salons, social clubs, spas and private spaces available by the hour, but no one business comprehensively addresses the needs of today’s professional women. The Wing will be the first company to combine the best of those elements in the same location.
