  Designer Sue Wong showed her new collection for Fall 2014 at her Los Angeles Atelier last Friday,  April 11.
The Fall season collection is called Edwardian Romance, which has a new theme of Hollywood Glamour and a touch of Downton Abbey vintage style. Her Edwardian signature style features empire silhouettes and long hobble skirts.
 -“ The Downton Abbey look never looked more seductively and elegantly refined in beige-black-champagne gowns with shimmering lace-illusion yoke, embroidery and bouquets of floral beadwork”, said Sue Wong.

-“The Edwardian Era has always inspired my work”.”I loved the period costumes of Downton Abbey. I have an affinity for this era and its iconography in a way that is effortlessly aligned with my fascination with seductive stories, which are embedded in  bead work that I include in my work”.
