We’re just getting ready to cover World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto. One designer that’s been on my radar for a a few years is Sunny Fong of VAWK. You may be familiar with his name as being the winner of Project Runway Canada in Season Two. Since then, he’s been hard at work creating stunning lines that have made him one of the most well-loved designers in Canada. His detailing is impeccable. See that Koi dress? Takes my breathe away!!!
He’s also been a favourite amongst celebrities like Katy Perry, Elisha Cuthbert and Serena Ryder. Recently he was asked to design a collection for the Shangri-La hotel and capsule collections available exclusively on eBay Canada. In addition, Sunny has launched capsule collections at The Room, at the Hudson’s Bay, Queen Street.
There’s no doubt that he’s one to watch for on the runways during Fashion Week. I’ll be there and will be reporting back from his show in days to come.
In the meantime, there’s a crowd funding campaign to help Sunny take his brand to the next level. I know how hard it is for designers to get the funding that is greatly needed to move their career forward. So, here’s our chance to truly support Canadian talent.
Until end of day March 15, 2014 you can show your support with as little as $20 and up to $3000. Crowd sourcing on indiegogo.com also includes perks! So, while it’s not about “perks” it’s a nice little added bonus.
