EFW06 Review: Day 1 Nicole Bridger Installation Show

Eco Fashion Week 6th edition just wrapped up on Wednesday. It was a surreal experience being involved in it this year.

I did not want it to be over, so lets do a review. Starting with the show that started it all, Nicole Bridger.

Nicole Bridger is a Vancouver based fashion designer. Her "dynamic fashion line for a new generation of women who want to look effortlessly chic while maintaining a commitment to the earth and its people. Each collection is composed of stand-out pieces which reflect one’s individuality and femininity."

Her clothing are sold across the country, with stores in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton, Cochrane and Ottawa.

She couldn't have been a better choice to open Eco Fashion Week.

Her installation style interactive fashion art display was so unique! Perfect to show case her collection, aptly named "BE"

Be yourself, be beautiful, be truthful, be without judgement...

The models are all masked to symbolize that we all have to put masks on during our daily lives.

However, to truly embrace who we are, and to be, is to be without masks.

Be bold, be strong and be brave.

I had a chat with Nicole about her brand and discovered that being kind to the planet doesn't mean having to sacrifice style.

All her fabrics are ethically made form eco-friendly material. Her pieces are locally and ethically made as well. The pieces are all incredibly wearable and each piece is made to embrace the daily life.

She also jumped on her sewing machine and demonstrated her incredible skill. The entire show allowed the audience to really enjoy each piece of garment from every angle.
