Born in Mainland China, Sohung Tong (also known as "Tom") grew up in Hong Kong. He finished high school after moving to New York.
After graduating, with a degree in Fashion Design from The Parsons School of Design in New York City, Tom began working as an Assistant Designer in a Couture House on Madison Avenue.
Five years later he began selling his own collection at The Young Designers Market-NYC, in addition to selling to, and at, other boutiques under his own label: Sohung Designs.
His collection consists of original, hand made and one-of-a-kind pieces for both men and women.
Among many other designs, Tom's specialty is creating belts, vests, dresses and coat for women by using men's ties and shirts.
Because he likes his collection to be unique and creative, all Tom's designs are original, and individually hand made in New York, and are not mass produced.
After a successful five-year stint at his own store (Sohung Designs on East 9th Street in Manhattan), he now has a long-term contract with "Artists & Fleas" within world famous Chelsea Market in Manhattan.
