Amazing Fong Leng

The woman on the left is the legendary Fong Leng***

Dutch/Chinese designer who was extremely popular during the seventies in Holland. She was specialized in monumental dress/jackets. Her muse was the extravagant woman on the right, Mathilde Willink, who always wore Fong Leng.***

 Fong Leng still is quite an important influence for Dutch designers like Viktor & Rolf, who paid tribute to her in 2002. This morning Fong Leng said she didn't know that, and was still a little angry because they didn't tell her. When young she always visited London because she was fond of Biba. She also has a message for all you young and starting designers: follow your heart!
***This  wonderful creation was build from lether and also panting above maked them incredible... 
''Leopard dress''

Today she signed her book.It is in Dutch.
Fong Leng today, a gorgeous lady!*
This woeman gives me a lot of inspirations in my work!-)*

Bonjour Violetta,
Fascinating post, I have never heard of FOng-Leng before, but I see now why she caused such a sensation in the seventies.
I love what you've done to your blog. Is that you in the photo with the pink flowers? Beautiful!

Виолетта, спасибо за интрoдакцию - я действительно ничего не знала об этой уника;ьной женщине. Мне кажется она безумно таланатлив, немного сумашедша и мне бы очень хотелось пообщаться с ней за чашечкой чая в вашей компании :-) Обнимаю вас и желаю вам прекрасного уикенда.
