Rickyy Wong, born and based in Hong Kong, graduated from Raffles International College (Hong Kong) in 2014. The designer was selected to be one of the exhibitors at Brunch Bazaar by YAP HK x Artichoke Canteen and was then nominated to show at The HUB trade show in March 2015 in Hong Kong. His graduate collection was shown at Hong Kong Fashion Week 2015 during the finale catwalk show.
Wong’s first menswear collection for Autumn/Winter 2016 was completed under his eponymous label: Rickyy Wong. The contemporary menswear collection ‘Sois Fort’ has taken its inspiration from the film “Drawing Restraint 9” by Matthew Barney. The collection focuses on the use of fabrication textures as the representation of different cultures. The primary colours of the collection are black and grey; their solidity stands as the representation of one’s strength and confidence.
As for future aspirations, Rickyy Wong is eager to work at one of the international contemporary design houses, and to further develop his label.
