With an inspiring and uplifting success story spanning the globe, Sue is “Every Woman’s Couturier.” Sue’s designs transform women into glamorous goddesses of every manifestation on a global scale. Every one of her exquisite gowns are glamorous works of wearable art, featuring exquisite fabrics shimmering with incandescent beads, combined to create works of art that are graceful, elegant, unique and timelessly beautiful. A Sue Wong creation exudes feminine romance, an odyssey of seduction — timelessly glamorous and evocative. What I love most about Sue’s timeless designs is that it hearkens back to the golden age of Hollywood, which I love and Sue brings glamour full force in a t-shirt and blue jeans culture, which is no easy feat. Models strutted down the runway as planes taxied down the runway, making for a dramatic show!
Spectacular headdresses by Kicka Custom Design and What a Betty complemented these amazing gowns to complete Sue’s hypnotically-glamorous vision. The ubiquitous jewelry of Vilaiwan designed by the talented Joe Polthakorn added additional flair to the Sue’s signature designs. Bui Productions transformed the SUE WONG models into seductive goddesses with beautiful hair and makeup.
Socialite Mrs. Alexandrina Doheny enthusiastically shared: “Sue Wong gowns are sheer beauty and absolutely divine.”
Grammy award-winning composer and artist, Omar Akram declared: “An evening with Superstar International Designer Sue Wong featuring her gowns with stunning designs and colors, delicious food and beautiful models…PERFECT!” It truly was a live homage to Sue’s life affirming mantra of “Beauty, Magic, Transformation!”
Former Consul General of Bolivia Fernando Lazcano Dunn expressed: “A magnificent evening! Sue Wong’s fashions are a feast for the eyes!”
