Kaisik Wong was a Chinese-American fashion designer, born in San Francisco. He learned to sew using a cheap portable sewing machine and worked at a Polk Street men’s fashion boutique called the 'Town Squire‘. Later he started his own label called 'Muuntux‘. He created custumes for Salvador Dalí and stage clothes for Bette Davis, Elton John and Tina Turner. Wong was active until his death from leukemia in 1990. Tina Turner used his special creations in the 70’s in her concerts and at TV-Shows like Midnight Special.
