Sunny Fong of VAWK shows suiting, metallics at Toronto fashion week

WATCH ABOVE: VAWK fall/winter 2014

Sunny Fong of luxury label VAWK didn’t let his fundraising efforts slow him down. He sent a sharp, elegant collection down the runway, with a strong focus on pleating, metallics and animal textures.

Fong, who recently held an Indiegogo campaign, kept his fall/winter 2014 collection within two colourways (black and silver), highlighted with texture (python).

One of the highlights was model (and marathon runner) Amy, who walked down the runway with a custom-designed prosthetic leg from a company in Alberta. The filigree design fit over her leg.

Fong’s strong points were his suiting that combined wool with pleats, metallics and python versus his dresses. They were pretty, experimenting with subtle sexiness thanks to a close fit and sheer wedges at the torso and thighs but if you’re going to buy, spring for the suits.
