TORONTO, Aug. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - Oh Canada! eBay Canada has partnered with renowned Canadian fashion designer Sunny Fong of VAWK to create a unique and fashion-forward collective dubbed VAWK for eBay by Sunny Fong. The limited-edition capsule features clothing and accessory pieces - including a must-have little black dress - all under $120 with free shipping across Canada.

"We are so excited to bring the quality and luxury of VAWK's designs to eBay buyers, particularly at such affordable prices," says Andrea Stairs, country manager, eBay Canada. "The collection's seven pieces are truly versatile: worn individually they provide an instant update to any fall outfit, while combined they create a complete fashion-forward look."

Sunny Fong has designed seven items including a shift dress, two silk-blend scarves, leather and fox fur collar, caplet, leather and fox fur cuff and unisex leather tie, each priced under $120. The collection is exclusive to eBay and can be found at ebay.ca/vawkforebay.  The sale runs from August 12 to September 15, 2013, or while supplies last.  All items will be sold at fixed prices, with free shipping across Canada!

"I wanted to create an exclusive collection for eBay of great essentials that can transform a look from day to night, and can give someone a fashion moment," says Sunny Fong, VAWK. "The pieces stay true to the VAWK aesthetic - each is inspired by our past collections that can be seen in our runway shows."

VAWK for eBay by Sunny Fong is the newest fashion collaboration from the e-commerce leader, and follows in the footsteps of past successful all-Canadian collaborations including the Valentine's Collective featuring jewellery designs from Rebekah Price, Dean Davidson and Foxy Originals.

High-resolution images of the collection are available upon request. For more, follow @eBayCanada and @VAWK on Twitter and visit facebook.com/eBayCanada for updates and inspiration on the collection.
