About this event

Born in Hong Kong, raised in SF Bay, and now based in NYC, Tracy Wong is a 10+ years fashion professional with both design and marketing background. She has worked with brands big and small, including Macy's, Inditex, Tommy Hilfiger, and Calvin Klein, just to name a few. 

Her career spans across a wide range of roles including creative directing, design, merchandising, and product development, allowing her a thorough grasp of the fashion dynamic. She was one of the featured designers in SF Fashion Week, and was ex-cofounder of FTW, an online media devoted to the then emerging fashion tech category. 

Today, with the purpose of overhauling an industry with one of the highest environmental impacts, she founded Voor to redesign fashion's business model to be synchronous, agile, and truly sustainable.
