What is Wanko? Well, here's a blurb from their website:

"Veeko Group (Veeko) was established in 1984 by Mr. Cheng Chun Man, Johnny to trade, manufacture and wholesale ladies' apparel under the brandname Veeko.

Three years later in 1987, Mr. Cheng launched a fashion line for working women under the brandname Wanko given the surge in demand for executive ladies' wear."
