Once again, Sunny Fong casts diverse models for his Vawk show

Once again, Sunny Fong casts diverse models for his Vawk show

Vawk designer Sunny Fong debuted his spring-summer 2011 collection in one of our favourite venues: the AGO’s grand and airy Walker Court. The theme, Toro Safari, mixed elements of Spain and Africa, even down to the seating arrangements—Fong had everyone sitting in concentric circles, as in a bullfighting arena. African influences were evident in the giant saucer earrings models wore (which Fong crafted from leather, then appliquéd with silvery foil), the embossed crocodile print jackets and the slim safari pants. (Sure, a woman couldn’t traipse around the Sahara in these outfits, but she’d be the most fashionable at African Lion Safari.) The nude and cream colour palette was a bit, well, beige, but we liked the shock of the fuchsia-fringed mini in the middle of the show. As in seasons past, Fong hired models of different body types and ages, giving spectators a chance to see the clothes on women other than glamazon automatons.
