Internationally renowned designer SUE WONG hit all the right notes with her swinging “Jazz Babies” Spring 2014 Collection just unveiled at the Cicada Club in LA. Certain to be on the fashion playlist for the coming season, the latest collection features a greatest hits of trends including polka dots in a variety of colors and iterations.

Underscoring the collection’s core theme are intricately embroidered cocktail numbers and exquisitely draped floor length ball gowns that contrast solid skirts with bejeweled bodices fit for any special occasion. There are also a range of day-to-evening pieces in beautifully muted shades including pinks and lilacs, classic blacks and beiges, and more paparazzi-bait showstoppers.

It was a packed, Invitation-Only affair with countless celebrities dressed in Sue Wong couture, fashion and entertainment industry insiders all dressed in their 1920s finery to complement the collection’s theme and the elegant backdrop of the art deco club in the historic James Oviatt Building in downtown Los Angeles.

Sue explains how the collection was inspired by the 1920s flappers or jazz babies as they were called: “Before then, women were only ever portrayed as an extension of a husband or her parents. From the sparks of rebellion in the way they dressed and expressed themselves, those amazing women pioneered the kind of empowered attitudes and lives we have today.”

Sue cites as inspirations women like actress Marie Prevost who spanned a career of over a hundred films from silent to talkies, Paris sensation Josephine Baker, It Girl Clara Bow, film star and accomplished businesswoman Norma Talmadge, and Anita Loos who was an author, screenwriter and playwright of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, which featured the flapper as the protagonist.

She adds, “They paved the way to a woman’s right to lead a truly independent life. They were strong, vibrant and fabulous!” – precisely the kind of words to describe the Sue Wong Spring 2014 Collection.
