With fall fast approaching it seemed only appropriate that I touch base with our favorite, celebrity fashion designer Mark Wong Nark to see what's in store for us this fall and winter season.
Tom Mark is the man behind the infamous Mark Wong Nark line. He has styled everyone from Kim Kardashian to Carmen Electra to Cameron Diaz. Currently, he’s working on the debut of his fall and winter fashion that will be hitting LA boutiques and Nordstrom’s department stores soon.
I caught up with Tom at a photo shoot with model Michele Brickman. Mark handpicked Brickman to showcase his fall and winter clothing line because, as he puts it, “She has the most vivacious curves.” He went on to say, “Michele has that “It” quality about her.” Tom likens Brickman to Kim Kardashian, another famous client of his. "I can just see Michele blowing up big time. From the minute I met her I thought stardom."
Fashion designer Tom Mark is the man behind the infamous Mark Wong Nark line. The line, named after his father who passed away 15 years ago, is responsible for clothing stars Tyra Banks, Cameron Diaz and Kim Kardashian. His line has appeared in music videos for Madonna, George Michel and Paula Abdul. Denise Richards dodged bullets while wearing his leggings in the James Bond movie "The World Is Not Enough."
Originally from Thailand, Tom moved to Los Angeles when he was seventeen. His older brother recognized Tom's raw talent and pushed him toward fashion school. Tom enrolled in FIDM and it was there that a designer was born.
