Vancouver Fasion Week SS2014 Highlights

Sorry for being slight MIA the last couple of days. I was involved with a very meaningful fundraising fashion show and attended a dear friend's wedding.



Even though this is a massive late pass, I still want to share with you the two designers I really liked from Vancouver Fashion Week.

Captured by the talented Kuna Lu, KunaPhotography, let's take a journey.

First we have Noe Bernacelli from day four. His luxe gowns and polished office looks are focused on celebrating the feminine figure.

I love it.


My absolute favourite collection on creative merit alone is from Dandi Wind Opaine.

She blew me away. Her theatrical production may not to ready to wear, but it is definitely ready to wow.

Let's get wowed.


Dandi is also going to be taking part in the Thrift Chic Challenge at Eco Fashion Week 07. Can't wait to see what she can bring with a $500 budget from Value Village.

Final day of EFW06 Vendors and Craftsmen Galore

Counting down Eco Fashion Week has made me more thankful than ever that we have so many sustainable and eco-friendly fashion options around us.

Especially in light of the factory collapse in Savar, on the outskirts of Dhaka, on April 27, 2013, we need to do our part to seek out more sustainable, local and ethical options.

A great option in Vancouver, aside from Value Village is My Sister's Closet. They support the Battered Women’s Support Services by donating their proceeds to them. Next time you need that perfect something, please check them out.

They get many amazing pieces donated to them from Aritzia and even locally filmed TV shows.

Next up is a local leather crafts maker Five Left.

"Originally from southern Washington state, designer lincoln heller worked in an Alaskan logging camp to pay for his schooling at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design. It was there that he began working with leather in his spare time, making tool pouches from discarded boots. Upon returning to Vancouver BC, lincoln began crafting custom bags for men. fiveleft leather has since evolved into a full line of accessories for men and women, gaining recognition each season for its distinctive rugged yet refined look."

Their colourful and well made leather goods can brighten up any outfit.

This final designer has been one I have been watching for a while. They are the dynamic duo behind Hey Jude.

"Hey Jude Shop is a collection of vintage clothing that is curated by co-creators Lauren Clark and Lyndsey Chow. Based out of Vancouver, Hey Jude was born in 2010 after the girls realized how much they loved scouring markets and thrift stores around the world for the perfect pieces to add to their growing collections. With focus on quality, style and fabrics the collections always fit in seamlessly with the seasons current trends."

Until Fall, I can't wait to be more acquainted with more eco-designers, options and inspirations.
