“As a designer I’ve been growing but I always keep those elements that I know inspire me. It all brews in my head and then all of the sudden I spit it out into a collection that really says this is so me.” said Fong.
The Spring 2013 collection named “Queen of Hearts”, the collection draws the inspiration from the Victorian ages paying homage to original representation of beloved royals.
“The inspiration for this collection was the opulence and elegance from the Victorian times and Victorian queens.” shares Anna, “The laces and the beautiful garments that they used to have custom made. It really inspired me. But also how they carried themselves and the resilience and the confidence of the queen.”
Fong wants her customers to feel comfortable in her clothes while looking stunning. She shops around a lot for quality fabrics. She uses knits and linens which are combined with organzas, silks and laces. “I pick fabrics that I can see myself wearing and being comfortable in.” said the designer.
Coming out to the runway the models were looking elegant in Anna Fong’s designs. Anna blends timeless and classic design elements with modern fashion. This mix results in clean designs that convey the spirit of each collection.
For the second year in the row Anna Fong’s fashion show had closed the Fashion Focus week in Chicago with elegance and style.
