Karin Kate Wong was featured in the Academy of Art University 2016 Graduation Fashion Show.

Karin Kate Wong, B.F.A. Fashion Design, was born in Macau, China. After earning an Associate of Arts in Fashion Design in 2013, Wong decided to further her fashion career pursuit at the Academy of Art University. While working towards her degree, she interned at both gr.dano in Sausalito, a line by 2004 B.F.A. Fashion Design alumna Jill Giordano, and earned a position as the womenswear design intern at Public School in New York City. For her collection, Wong sought an inspiration that held significance for her. She chose the theme “bed”. She forewent buttons and zippers, instead opting for ties and elastics as closures for more comfort. The looks feature silky, soft fabrics amplified by silver lamé accents. A sense of laid-back comfort and sexuality is brought to life through the draping and backless cuts.
