Sunny Fong launches Vawkkin (like, akin to Vawk—get it?)
Sunny Fong, Project Runway Canada alum and designer of Vawk, is expanding his clothing line with a diffusion label called Vawkkin, proving it has been a big year for the Toronto designer: he just dressed Elisha Cuthbert, star of Happy Endings (though we prefer to remember her as the girl from Popular Mechanics for Kids), for the People’s Choice Awards, on top of showing another successful season at Toronto Fashion Week. Vawkkin will be a cheaper collection than Vawk, geared toward the “young professional fashion-forward female” in a palette of blacks and neutrals. It’s exciting to see a young Canadian designer with so much demand that he has to start a more affordable line, so we look forward to see what Vawkkin will look like. A preview of the fall/winter collection will happen sometime this spring. We’re just going to start an unsubstantiated rumour that Cuthbert will be walking in the show right now (we can’t promise anything).
