    TORONTO, April 14 /CNW/ - There's only room for one on this runway...
Sunny Fong was declared season two winner during tonight's finale of the
highly addictive Global Original Series Project Runway Canada.
    Sunny Fong, a 32-year-old Toronto native, was the final designer left
standing tonight on Project Runway Canada - besting design offerings from
runners-up Jessica Biffi and Jason Meyers. Sunny's collection was inspired by
Alexander the Great and delivered stunning versatility that stayed true to his
unique point of view.
    "My experience on Project Runway Canada has definitely been life
changing," said Sunny Fong, Season Two Winner of Project Runway Canada. "To be
able to create my line full force is spectacular. I can't wait to blow up on
the fashion scene, not just in Canada, but around the world."
    Show host and supermodel, Iman, together with a judging panel made-up of
season one winning designer, Evan Biddell, resident judges Rita Silvan,
Editor-in-Chief of ELLE Canada, and Shawn Hewson, Creative Director of Bustle
Clothing, collectively agreed Sunny was and will be an unstoppable force in
the fashion world.
    As Project Runway Canada season two champ, Sunny has won it all - a cover
and feature spread in ELLE Canada, a professional portfolio photo shoot
courtesy of L'Oréal Paris, a 'Runway to Retail' business mentorship with
Winners, and $100,000 to start his own fashion line.
