More fur at fashion week from Sunny Fong

It seems that fur has become no big deal in Canadian fashion this season, with Jeremy Laing, Greta Constantine and Izma all using it fearlessly. Yesterday, Sunny Fong (who’ll be forever referred to as the Project Runway Canada season two winner) made full use of the North American Fur Association by adorning outfits with fur lapels, collars, cuffs and hems for his Vawk line. Though Fong’s inspiration for his Collision Fungi collection, “the beauty of decay and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow,” reminded us more of an OCAD artist statement, the designer took a big step from last season. We particularly liked the leather skirts and luxe coats trimmed with fur; the slim-fitting trousers with an extra flap of fabric to resemble riding pants; and leather skirts with padding at the hips. Both looks echo a spring trend of playing with hip proportions. Look for such fellow PRC alums as Evan Biddell and Lucian Matis later in the week.
