Carlie Wong (born June 13, 1984), is a Canadian fashion designer of Chinese ancestry who lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia. She was a participant in Project Runway Canada's first season. She was eliminated in the sixth episode, finishing the competition in eighth place.
Wong was born in Hong Kong, but moved with her family to Canada when she was young. Always dressed to impress, Carlie does not own a pair of jeans.
Wong attended Eric Hamber Secondary School and then pursued a degree in fashion design from Kwantlen University College where she graduated at the top of her class in 2006.
Upon graduated, Wong was hired by Manuel Mendoza as a dressmaker. She then took a job with mac&jac/Kensie as an assistant designer.
Carlie says her experience in the industry has given her strong couturier skills, not unlike the delicate handiwork of centuries past. The goal of her design aesthetic is to bring back a sense of luxury to our everyday dress. Carlie has been featured in Style Magazine, The Georgia Straight newspaper and the Vancouver Sun.
As a testament to her design philosophy, Carlie’s work features quality construction, attention to detail and a strong eye for silhouette and proportion. Favouring neutral colour palettes, her focus is to create feminine, luxurious pieces utilizing fine imported fabrics and expert craftsmanship. Carlie’s collections seamlessly fuse classical with modern elements and are often inspired by travel, music, architecture and history.
