“Be sustainable for your life, for tomorrow and future. Committed to making a positive impact!”

Kelvin Wan and Joyce Wong graduated from HKDI with a Higher Diploma in Fashion Design and Development in 2013. They have a strong passion in fashion design and continued their study at Nottingham Trent University thereafter.

Kelvin is an independent fashion designer best known for his unexpected combination of colours, patterns and forms. In 2012, Kelvin won the “Most Promising Student Award” at the Eco-Chic Design Award, a fashion design competition for Asia’s emerging design talent organised by Redress, a Hong Kong-based charity organisation that drives environmental sustainability in the fashion industry. His work has been reported by various magazines and media and his design pieces have been exhibited in Paris, London and Shanghai.

Joyce is a fashion designer best known for her strong sense of aesthetics. At the age of 19, she has already entered the fashion industry with her first collection and consistently collaborating with different brands. Joyce has also worked with Yan Gent Cheng, a British-based Fashion designer, to present the label.

In 2013, Joyce and Kelvin started their sustainable fashion business and set up their own brand “Wan & Wong”. The objective of Wan & Wong is to create a sustainable future. The philosophy of their collection is minimalism, characterised by clean cuts, sharp lines, soft colours and unique silhouettes with a modern touch, using sustainable production techniques of up-cycling, zero-waste and reconstruction. Their collection were showcased and sold at the “Joyce Talent Shop” at PMQ sponsored by Joyce Cares from August to October 2014.
