Luxury women’s wear label VAWK launches its first Resort capsule collection at The Room, The Bay, Queen St.

TORONTO, December 5, 2011—Building on the success of the brand, luxury women’s wear label VAWK released its first capsule collection ‘RESORT 2012’ hitting the floor at The Room, The Bay’s upmarket boutique.

Introduced as a surprise opening for the runway collection ‘INSECTICA Spring/Summer2012’ launched at LG Fashion Week on October 20, 2011, ‘RESORT 2012’ offers a collection of chic black dresses with leather detailing.

“Resort is about exploration,” notes Creative Director Sunny Fong of his first capsule collection, “I wanted to offer VAWK women a selection of dresses suitable for a night out at a gala or a trip to an exotic destination.”

Never one to shy away from the most intricate of details, Fong used laser cut lambskin to create an original lace floral and ornithological design, translated in black leather specifically for The Room clientele. Adding romantic touches to each of the garments with an edge, these leather lace details are perfect finishing to multi-layered silk chiffon strapless gowns and cocktail dresses found in the collection.

“I wanted to create a wide range of classic black dresses with a modern touch,” said Fong of the collection, which also includes versatile pieces such as a leather-lace-neck maxi dress and the lantern sleeve tunic dress; the latter doubling both as a mini-dress or a tunic.  “This capsule collection is for the fan of the VAWK dress with a twist.”
