Fresh from graduating from London’s LCF, bright young thing Viking Wong takes his stunning debut ready-to-wear collection for AW10 to Vauxhall Fashion Scouts exhibition space.
The collection is based around the theme of “a work in progress” focusing on the steps behind a finished garment. Inspired by unfinished pieces and their imperfections Wong creates strong tailored pieces and using their imperfections to demonstrate their beauty. The collection is elegant and wearable.
This is Viking Wong’s first time at Vauxhall Fashion Scout having only graduated a few months ago. He describes the whirlwind as “very hectic… After we finish here it’s I’m on to Paris with Vauxhall Fashion Scout. I’m just trying to generate enough interest and see what the press reaction is and hopefully the buyers will come!”
Viking Wong is a name to remember having recently made the final five at the Gen Art Styles Vision Awards in the Avant Garde category. Expect big things in the future, Viking Wong is one to watch.
