Catwalk extravaganza proves flamboyant Wong can cut it as a designer as well as a lyricist
Fashion fanatic and Canto-pop lyricist Wyman Wong Wai-man now has fans not just of his flamboyant personal style, but also of his equally eccentric designs.
Local casual-wear brand Izzue Collection has collaborated with Wong on a capsule collection of menswear, womenswear and accessories - think denim capes and men's shirts with embroidery and a neon lace trim.
The collection, themed 'I've got nothing to wear', was launched at the Fringe Club in Central on Tuesday. Wong's Canto-pop friends Denise Ho Wan-sze and Ivana Wong Yuen-chi, turned up to give the event some extra star power.
The fashion presentation was not your everyday catwalk show. Prior to the show, four models wearing only underwear and neon paint sat inside a see-through wardrobe at the centre of the stage. The solemn atmosphere was blown, however, when the chair one of the models was sitting on cracked unexpectedly - a bit of a twist to an otherwise stylish piece of performance art.
Many guests raised their camera phones at the finale, including Wong himself, as the lights dimmed to reveal that the neon paint on the models bore the 'I've got nothing to wear' slogan.
The venue was packed with fashion hipsters, while many more queued up outside after the show trying to get in. Wong posed dutifully for photos with his legion of fans.
