Sunny Fong’s inspiration for this tutu was fish swimming upstream. As the Creative Director and driving force behind Canadian luxury women’s wear label VAWK, Sunny first took an interest in fashion at the high school level teaching himself to sew while making dresses for friends. Since inception in 2004, VAWK has become synonymous with quality craftsmanship and a design style that is as innovative as it is sophisticated. VAWK designs have been showcased on red carpets worldwide, including the Cannes International Film Festival, the Grammy Awards and the People’s Choice Awards.

In the spring of 2008 Fong applied to be a contestant on Season 2 of Project Runway Canada. During the competition, Sunny quickly caught the eyes of the judges and viewers alike with his creations, ultimately winning the competition with his Alexander the Great inspired collection.
