Last night the Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto unveiled the new Lobby Lounge wardrobe with the help of fashion line VAWK. Sunny Fong of VAWK was there to reveal the custom wardrobe which tries to pair the Asian luxury of the hotel with Asian luxury fashion.

“I wanted the design to truly reflect a hybrid of my brand and what I feel Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto represents. I was inspired by the art work in the lobby, the Ming vase tea library and the ornithological theme that is prevalent in the hotel and the Zhang Huan ‘Rising’ sculpture,” said Fong of his inspiration.
The VAWK dress was inspired by traditional Asian designs and Chinese gardens based on a traditional qipao dress.
