Arto Wong graduated with a BA in Fashion and Textiles Design and Knitwear Design with Technology as her major from Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The designer was crowned champion and secured the New Talent Award at the Hong Kong Young Fashion Designers’ Contest (YDC) in 2017, and launched her namesake label in the following year. Wong’s designs break out of traditional knitwear styles and shapes, pushing the boundaries of knitwear by experimenting with different techniques and material combinations.
The New Talent Award gave Wong the opportunity to retail her debut collection at JOYCE, Hong Kong’s mecca of high fashion. Wong is extremely appreciative of this collaboration, which provided her with invaluable insights into customers as she continues to develop her young brand.
