LG Fashion Week Review: Vawk

Toronto's LG Fashion Week is a chance for the Fashion Design Council of Canada to show off home-grown talent.

The Vawk show was undoubtedly one of the highlights of Thursday evening. However, none of the fashion fans in the front row suspected the crisis averted backstage. After the show had begun, the pants that went with several of the looks had still not arrived. Vawk designer Sunny Fong showed up in the nick of time, pants in hand, and the show went off without a hitch.

And what a show it was. Fong was inspired by Malayan mountain climbers and translated the idea into a collection of inspired but wearable looks. I take it as a sign of the designer’s skill that he managed to transform leather, leopard print, and studs into classy daywear. Vawk’s fall collection was definitely the toast of the week.
