“What good is fashion unless it stirs up genuine emotion! Love and beauty have a magical, tranformative power.”
Sue Wong was born in the remote countryside of Communist China. At age six her Mother took a courageous leap of faith and bribed a border guard with her wedding jewels in exchange for her and her daughters freedom into Hong Kong. Journeying to the United States a year later, Sue and her Mother reunited with her Father in Los Angeles. As the daughter of struggling immigrants, Sue learned to work hard for what she wanted in life. She had a vision and was willing to do whatever it took to make her vision come true. She quickly realized that nothing comes free and its not all about money. Although money can certainly buy luxuries and can make things easier, the crucial success is the internal one. The one that resides in ones inner landscape.
Sue is a maximalist and perfectionist. Each and every piece that she designs, she invests with her utmost integrity and fierce passion. She has been able to turn her idea into an empire by never compromising on her vision and continuing to give 110 percent in everything she does. "If I have a goal and am going for it and have to endure an entire war to do so, then so be it. Either do something with 110% unwavering commitment…or don’t do it all." - Sue Wong
Ms. Wong will share her words of wisdom, here is one of them:
- Never allow other people to limit your possibilities by accepting the projections of their very own limitations onto yourself.

Vavavida is a line of ethically made fashion jewelry items that give back. We only retail ethically made pieces of gorgeous high-quality hand crafted artisan jewelry from all over the world. But we don’t stop there because 10% of our revenues goes to non-profit organizations such as Project Concern International where our investments go to help empower women around the globe. When you empower a woman, you empower a community.
Vavavida was founded after a long conversation between Antoine and Dan --two of the co-founders-- seeing eye-to-eye about things that could be done in the world to enrich people’s lives. Vavavida was created to help prevent events like the tragic collapse of the Rana Plaza sweatshop from happening again. If Vavavida can be part of the conversation in proving that healthy profits don’t have to come at the expense of the mistreating of other human beings, we will have won our “Fair Fashion Coup.”
Antoine Didienne is the president of Vavavia.com, an ethical and unique fashion and accessories retailer that focuses on empowering women, fighting poverty and creating change in the fashion industry.
