"I am very excited and pleased to announce the new franchise of SUE WONG Boutique Hotels. I envision the SUE WONG brand of International Hotels to carry my usual panache of signature haute style and glamour, while offering a sense of relaxation and renewal to upscale international guests. Dana Blanchard is an experienced hotel developer who has a track record of 24 hotel projects behind him and will be working with me as an advisor on my projects. The new hotel franchise is based on the paradigm of my three homes representing Body, Mind and Spirit," said the critically acclaimed designer.

Coined as “Every Woman's Couturière,” Sue Wong expressed how she has many dreams yet to manifest. Being the quintessential Phoenix, she now finds herself poised on a threshold she calls her Third Phoenix Rising. The next most vibrant and exciting Third Chapter is the culmination of a stellar career, the embodiment of her well-respected, much loved epiphanous label of magnificent evening gowns and cocktail dresses, SUE WONG.

In addition to delivering a vision for the future of her brand, Sue Wong gave an impromptu retrospective Fashion Show with stunning looks culled from the SUE WONG archives worn by guest models Eugenia Kuzmina and Ava Capra of America's Next Top Model, who channeled glamour goddesses on the outdoor runway.
