TORONTO, June 17, 2012—During one of the biggest nights in Canadian music, millions of viewers tuned in to the Much Music Video Awards to see which of their favourite Canadian and international acts would perform, present and ultimately take home an award in what has become Toronto’s biggest music awards ceremony and street party.
International pop music sensation Katy Perry looked stunning on the red carpet in a VAWK gown created by Toronto-based designer Sunny Fong. Known for her catchy lyrics and normally quirky sense of style, the “Wide Awake” songstress is also no stranger to more elegant show stopping looks on the red carpet.
Continually making his mark in the Canadian fashion scene, Sunny Fong has seen recent international media attention for dressing Canadian starlet Elisha Cuthbert in VAWK for the People’s Choice awards, a look which was crowned among the “Top 25 Best Dresses of Awards Season” by People.com.
Fong, who recently launched a more affordable sister collection to the luxury label, is actively growing his business. “This year is all about growing the business internationally. I look forward to continuing our strategy to take VAWK globally, and having an international superstar like Katy Perry wear one of my dresses is amazing” said Fong. VAWK is available at The Room, an upmarket boutique within Canadian retail giant, The Bay.
