Internationally renowned designer SUE WONG resurrected mythic Goddesses, rocking the runway and redefining Mount Olympus with her hypnotic and sensual Goth Opera fashion show “Mythos & Goddesses.” She sizzled with her Fall 2015 Collection and opened Art Hearts Fashion Week at the grand Taglyan complex in Hollywood to a raving audience. The invitation-only, sold-out (900 capacity) event featured celebrities, ambassadorial delegates, press, stylists, and fashion editors; as well as Sue's many friends in music and entertainment.
World-renowned British operatic soprano Summer Watson invoked the inter-dimensional SUE WONG Goddesses with her powerful prelude performance. Rock stars Nikki Sixx from Mötley Crüe, Chris Pitman from Guns N' Roses, Brit rocker Steve Cooke, and many other celebrities including Billy Zane (Titanic), Sofia Milos (CSI Miami), Kelsey Scott (12 Years a Slave), Richard Grieco, Adina Porter (True Blood), May Wang (Fresh Off the Boat), John Savage, Ronn Moss, Larry Dunn (Earth, Wind and Fire), the Cast of "Little Women LA," the Harris Brothers, Rachel Federoff and Destine Pfaff (Millionaire Matchmaker), Carolyn Hennesy (True Blood), Jacqueline Murphy, Grammy winner Omar Akram, Vassy (musician), Vincent De Paul, and actress Josie Davis all attended. Celebrity guest models featured actress Eugenia Kuzmina, Courtney Sixx (married to Rocker Nikki Sixx), Blanca Blanco and America’s Next Top Model’s Kiara Belen all regally walked the SUE WONG runway.
Sue Wong’s Fall 2015 Collection is an anthem of epic proportions - lush, evocative, with a romantic elegance. Sue Wong is an artist who alchemically heals through her creations, subsequently healing all who are touched by the power of the beauty that she creates.
Sue insightfully shares, “It’s not just a gown or mere fashion. I create an experiential transformation, awakening the inner goddess within every woman who wears a SUE WONG.” Sue’s ethos is about Goddesses and their representational archetypes. Paying homage to her three patron Goddesses, Sue explains: Aphrodite: I am an advocate of Love and I create Beauty; Artemis: I’m a fierce warrior-goddess cutting my swathe through the world; Athena: I’m a seeker of truth and wisdom. Each SUE WONG gown represents an archetypal feminine goddess. MYTHOS & GODDESSES is a timeless fashion slipstream into antiquity, catapulting it into the present and creating trend-setting gowns of utmost feminine sensuality and empowerment; as Sue expresses: “I mythologize my gowns through these Goddess archetypes.”
To quote Nigel Patrick Daly, OBE, former Chairman of the Board for BAFTA/LA: “Sue Wong is a magician, a high priestess able to transform women into Goddesses. She transports us back to an age of glamour and beauty. Timeless and majestic, she makes women look simply spectacular."
Actress Sofia Milos articulates: "Sue Wong's beautiful creations are the epitomy of feminine grace and aesthetics, reminiscent of an Old Hollywood flair which we all dream about to be part of today. Sue Wong brings the Goddess out of you and who doesn't want that?"
Spectacular headdresses by Kicka Custom Design, Lisa Marinucci Collection and Maggie Schpak - Studio Art Metal shop complemented the gowns in an endless runway of showstoppers epitomizing powerful, timeless femininity. These Goddess-gowns were further complimented by jewels from Vilaiwan, Lisa Marinucci Collection and Maggie Schpak - Studio Art Metal shop. The gowns of lace, satin and chiffon exemplify the Goddess and are synonymous with Sue’s signature intricate couture embellishments including: exquisite hand-beadwork, cascading floral embroidery, seutache embroidery paired with shimmering lace-illusion yokes, cut-out lace petals, deconstructed ribbon, ruffles, flowing chiffons and filigree lace. Dazzling beige, taupe, black, platinum, magenta, jade, sandalwood gave color to draped floor-length sweeping gowns and bejeweled skirts.
“Dreams are private myths, myths are public dreams” as Joseph Campbell advocates. Sue Wong’s Fall 2015 Collection is a fashion icon’s dream made public.
