    Sue Wong’s “Alchemy & Masquerade” Kicks off LA Fashion Week


    Rain only added to the evening’s mystique of “Alchemy & Masquerade” for internationally renown designer Sue Wong as she kicked off Art Hearts Fashion for Los Angeles Fashion Week at the Taglyan Cultural Complex in Los Angeles.


    Wong has been known for her Beauty - Magic - Transformation mantra in her designs but has taken it to a new height. It is the first collection of hers I have seen to date since following her for years with the dark drama of black and theatrical adornments vs. the transcending light of white angelic bridal. Her signature details of beading and lace still remain but added are a new sense of drama and theatre to her timeless designs.


    Her models themselves gracing the runway, tower over some nearly 8 feet in height by the time you include model height, heels and dramatic headpieces. Her celebrity models included Katie Cleary and Blanca Blanco.


    Seats were full and a standing room only crowd with over 1200 rsvps before showtime. Even the masks on seats followed the masquerade theme.


    In this latest collection, Wong’s theory is “real power and alchemy comes from within one’s true self. Does it wear you or do you wear it?”
