Vampin’ It Up At VAWK + VAWKKIN

Toronto Fashion Week favourite, Sunny Fong, really put on a show with his VAWK and VAWKKIN shows. Chock full of sex appeal, models rocked dark dresses with cut-outs, form fitting styles, and lots of leg. Luckily for me, this show was a two-parter, so I got to enjoy the show-stopping looks twice!

First up was the designer’s sister line, VAWKKIN, which Sunny created to much applause last year. Perhaps what makes the VAWKKIN brand so appealing is the fact that the show proudly uses models of different shapes, sizes and backgrounds. This collection featured a number of slim-fitting black dresses with peplums and interesting necklines. Models wore boyish shoes, similar to the brogues donned by models at the recent Victoria Beckham Spring/Summer 2013 show at New York Fashion Week.

VAWKKIN only mildly prepared the crowd for what was yet to come with VAWK. A dark, sensual video with a silhouette of a woman in a dressing room broke up the minutes between the two lines. Soon after, it was lights up and a stunning, skin baring, sheer flowing dress made its entrance. This dress made the show for me. Dress after low-cut dress had jaws dropping to the floor, including mine, in tasteful appreciation. With the exception of a gold, cone shape bra (think Madonna circa the 80s!), Sunny demonstrated that he understands female sensuality and the outfits that women can wear to feel sexy. 

Sunny Fong put on a really vampy show which encourages all of us to embrace our inner vixen just a little bit more through style, no matter our shape, size or age.
