NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Genderless streetwear brand, FRIED RICE, named ComplexCon’s Best Emerging Brand at the 2022 ComplexCon festival will be returning to ComplexCon November 18 – 19, 2023 in Long Beach, CA.

Founded by self-taught designer Maya Wang, FRIED RICE is a genderless elevated streetwear brand based in New York City. A lifelong fabric lover and creator, Maya launched FRIED RICE in 2016 as a tribute to the diversity of creative and cultural perspectives in her downtown Lower East Side neighborhood.

FRIED RICE has grown to be an attendee favorite at festivals nationwide, making a mark at the MADE and Afropunk festivals in Brooklyn, NY as well as ComplexCon in Long Beach, CA.

FRIED RICE will be showcasing new drops from their AW23 collection at this year’s ComplexCon event.

ComplexCon invites attendees to dive deep into the convergence of pop culture, art and music while experiencing the world’s most influential brands and artists in an immersive and unforgettable weekend. More information regarding the event, as well as ticket sales, can be found at
