Every year since 1999, the Fur Council of Canada calls on top Canadian designers to create fur designs inspired by the rich textures and versatility of fur. For 2010-2011, Design Network takes a new direction presenting the talent of one of Canada’s most exciting new designer - Sunny Fong with his Fall/Winter 2010-11 collection VAWK. Sunny Fong was chosen for his superior craftsmanship, his precise tailoring, the quality and exclusiveness of his strong and feminine designs, and the luxury goods he creates for sophisticated and discerning women.
Educated in film at Ryerson, Fong launched his own label, VAWK, in 2004. He presented his first collection at Toronto Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2005. In 2009 Fong garnered national prominence after winning season two of Project Runway Canada with his Alexander the Great-themed finale collection. His designs have walked red carpets around the world, including the Cannes International Film Festival and The Grammy Awards. With his new collection for Fall/Winter 2010, inspired by the beauty that comes from nature, Sunny Fong is building VAWK step-by-step into a global luxury brand.
