AW by Andrea Wong

  • Leatherwork
Andrea Wong is a designer and leatherworker focused on developing pleasing products that create ease in our daily lives. Prior to starting her own label in 2011, she worked as a lead designer in the fashion industry for over a decade, holding influential positions at some of Canada’s top brands. She holds a degree in Design from Ryerson University. AW by Andrea Wong is an accessories line inspired by the Pacific Northwest. The line was born out of a desire to create a strong cohesion between quality of materials and craftsmanship. AW creates functional accessories that tell a story: durable products made from natural materials that age gracefully, creating rich visual histories. In 2017, Andrea Wong was selected as the ‘One to Watch’ by Western Living Magazine. She was also shortlisted in the Fashion category for Western Living’s Designer of the Year in 2014 and 2016. Andrea and the brand has continued to garnered local and international media attention. In last year's lockdown AW by Andrea Wong was one of the first businesses to harness our local resources to successfully launch and consistently supply accessible, locally produced face masks.
