Victor Wong

Born and raised in the west of the culturally diverse Hunan Province in China, Victor Wong has always been interested in different cultures. Apart from exploring his home country, Victor has also travelled the world to various cities such as Lanzhou, Shanghai, Rome, Barcelona, all of which provided inspiration for his art. Victor now lives in London where he created his own Brand, VICTOR WONG, and he is now one of the most aspiring young designers in London's fashion industry.

VICTOR WONG’s flagship products are its sunglasses. Known for the shiny metals, sharp edges, and eccentric designs, these sunglasses reflect Victor’s thirst to raise the bar when it comes to fashion as well as the wealth of knowledge, inspiration and experience that he has accumulated over the years.

In designing the sunglasses, Victor combines the modesty of the east with the boldness of the west. Being heavily influenced by the handicrafts made by the artists from his hometown in western Hunan, Victor insists on hand making his sunglasses too. Victor’s designs are a breath of fresh air in the fashion industry. His love for art and pursuit of innovation are evident across his work.

Being a successful young Chinese man in London, Victor is always grateful to his friends from the fashion and entertainment industry who wear his sunglasses to parties, concerts, and photo shoots. Victor believes that if his business is a phoenix waiting to soar into the sky, his friends are the wings of the phoenix and his family the heart, and he is just the feathers that help the phoenix fly.

Victor has always been enthusiastic about art. As for whether he will expand his business into other sections of the industry, Victor says, “Nobody knows what the future holds, and this is what makes it all the more fascinating.
