EFW06 Review Value Village Day

I can't believe it was a week ago that this has happened.

I was involved in such an amazing experience. Thank you Eco Fashion Week, thank you Value Village for giving me the opportunity to do what I do best on such a spectacular platform.

I was involved in the Thrift Chic Challenge presented by Value Village along side two other fashion talents.

Sara Gourlay, Sandy Joe Carpetz, and myself were all given $500 to style a collection of 15 outfits from head to toe using only items from Value Village.

Here are some of my favourite pieces from Sara's black and white, minimalistic and reworked collection. She really showed off the tailoring and cuts of each piece. These amazing photos are brought to you by Peter Jensen.

Next up we have Sandy Joe. She also worked some DIY magic and made her own top and dress out of doylies, tapestry and table cloth. Man, these girls are talented.

I was the last of the three stylists, though those ladies should be called designers. Here is my year round styled out Blossom Parade.

The headliner of the night is the amazing Kim Cathers.

She takes 68lbs of ordinary pieces of clothing from Value Village and turn them into magic. This year, the collection is reborn from men's suits.


Here are my favourite pieces from this collection, though I really wanted to pick every single piece.
