Hollywood, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2015/3/31- “It’s not just a gown or mere fashion,” says designer Sue Wong. “I create an experiential transformation, awakening the inner goddess within every woman who wears a Sue Wong.”

Wong joined Art Hearts Fashion to open LA Fashion Week on March 9, 2015 at the Taglyan Complex in Hollywood. Mythos & Goddesses, her 2015 Fall Collection, was an ensemble of powerful colors and structure that easily evoked the goddesses who served as inspiration. Ludwig Van Beethoven’s stirring Prelude: Mai Di Luna was performed by soprano Summer Watson and served as a beautiful introduction to this particular fashion show.

Celebrity models walking the runway for Sue Wong included Courtney Sixx and America’s Next Top Model Kiara Belen.

About the Fashion 

Pele, the Goddess of Fire, inspired the first designs on the runway.  The dramatic red hues in this collection were the common bond amidst the variety of styles that shown.
