Icon Models in Toronto L’Oreal Fashion Week. Native Vancouver designer Carlie Wong impressed the Toronto public with her astonishing collection in the L’Oreal Fashion Week Spring / Summer 2009. The famous Project Runway Canada contestant is described as “a spirited intelligence, a jazzy confidence, and elegant mix of time-slowing classical beauty with a touch of smoky glam” by CTV. Wong’s collection had a distinct vibe that blends in girly glamour with street-chic.
Carlie Wong’s fittings took place at Icon Models in Toronto. In her quest to perfection, Carlie Wong took charge to ensure all her garments blended seamlessly and the models’ walks flawless. On the day of the show, “Carlie’s models charged down the runway with sure-footed independence, sliding hand along hips with relaxed shoulders and eyes that surveyed the lines of watchers around. There were no blank stares, not robotic statuettes, the models were alive,” -CTV
“My Spring / Summer 2009 collection is all about bringing quality construction, attention to detail and luxurious piece to the fashion world,” says designer Carlie Wong. With sharp edges and structured tailoring mix with her palette of colour including black, white grey and silvery blue contributed to achieving the”Glamorous Gangster” look she was striving for. The first look was her “must have” for Spring 09- the jumpsuit; which was a combination of a sharp wide-legged bottom, topped with a men’s waistcoat. The garment was followed by gowns and dresses that created flattering silhouettes through draping silks and plunging yet narrow necklines. The finale dress which is Carlie Wong’s favorite item in her collection is “a dramatic, heavily detailed and beaded black silk gown. It would be a custom dress that would probably sell for $10,000”-The Star. Integrating these elements together helped illustrate Carlie Wong’s design vision- feminine, sophistication and luxurious. The collection also alternated between masculine and feminine tailoring, featuring high-waited trousers paired with a ruffle black halter and tightly draped Grecian style jersey gown.
Wong’s collection was breath taking; she used the most engaging way to present the curves of modern women. Her creativity combined with her sponsor LG mobile stunned the audiences further. Technology inspired chained PDAs, mobiles as pendants and charmed bracelets were a substitute of jewelery and clutches. This was defiantly an exceptional show during this year’s fashion week.
