This winter VAWK collaborated with the Hudson’s Bay to create a Men’s coat. In the spirit of Canadian Heritage Brent Weisgerber, the buyer for men’s White Space brought together three Canadian designers Philip Sparks, VAWK by Sunny Fong and Ken Chow, to design an exclusive  coat for the men’s contemporary space.

CHATTING WITH TRICIA

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

Since the re-launch of VAWK in 2009, Toronto-based fashion stylist Tricia Hall has been the stylist for all of our runway shows at Toronto Fashion Week and all of our in-house creatives. We recently sat down with Tricia and asked her a few questions to understand her style.

Who are your personal style icons?

Julia Sarr-Jamois, Alexa Chung, Ashley Olsen, Jenna Lyons. I like that they all tend to wear a mash up of looks whether it’s pretty with tough, cute with casual or sleek with geeky chic.

What is your must-have?

I am still searching for the perfect leather jacket; motorcycle jacket preferred, and when I do find it I can’t wait to get it beat up and worn in so it’ll be perfect.

What is your favorite piece in your wardrobe?

My favourite piece(s) would have to be my docs. I own 7 pairs (and counting). I think I’m making up for lost time from my younger days. When I asked my mom to buy me a pair for school she bought me some look-a-likes from Honest Ed’s instead.

What are some things you can’t live without?

Jeans (or any clothing item with pockets), and my iPhone.

VAWK WITH GIO

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

Since our collection was inspired by Madonna and Frida Kahlo, we thought it would be great to create a few graphic-T’s, giving us the opportunity to collaborate with local artist Gio Petrucci. The graphics took ques from Frida Kahlo’s  surreal vision and Madonna song titles like “Open Your Heart”.

.

Gio Petrucci

Born and raised just outside of Windsor, Ontario by two Italian immigrants, Gio Petrucci was taught at an early age what really matters in life: love of family and following your passion.

That pursuit took him to Toronto’s OCAD University to study graphic design. Even before graduating, his openness to new ideas and distinct vision lead him to collaborations with several institutions and individuals including Plaid Magazine, fashion designer David C. Wigley for FAT Arts & Fashion Week, and OCADU itself.

Gio’s artistic expression isn’t limited to a single medium; it can be seen through his work in photography, print design, typography, and his signature collaging.

We were also lucky and thankful to find a local digital printer to bring our vision onto our runway.
