Carlie Wong is a fashion designer based in Vancouver, B.C. A year upon graduating with a bachelor’s degree in fashion design in 2006, she created the Carlie Wong label; a high-end line designed for the confident and feminine woman with a desire for everyday luxury. In 2012, she established Carlie Wong Atelier which features couture evening wear specially designed for private clientele.
Carlie burst into the fashion forefront in 2007 as the youngest of 12 featured designers on the inaugural season of Project Runway Canada. Through her design contributions and endearing nature in this Juno Award-winning TV show, she has garnered a strong following from the fashion elite to celebrities such as Carly Rae Jepsen, Florence Welch, Serinda Swan and Nina Dobrev. Her work has been featured in numerous publications including Flare, Fashion and Elle magazine and her evening dresses have graced the red carpet.
As a testament to her design philosophy, Carlie’s work is grounded in quality construction, attention to detail and a strong play on silhouette and proportion. Favoring pure lines and neutral color palettes, her body-conscious collections feature soft, draped pieces mixed with sharp, contemporary cuts. Her focus is to create feminine, luxurious pieces utilizing fine imported fabrics and expert craftsmanship.
