What I am extremely excited about seeing is actually the Thrift Chic show.

Participating in it last season was way too much fun. Let's walk down memory lane with my very blossomy creations. Images by Peter Jensen Photography.

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.

Helen Jean Custom Dresses for Every Woman

Last week I attended the HelenJean Launch Event.

What is HelenJean all about? It's all about custom made dresses for game changing women from work to play. The perfectly tailor made dress that you can take with you from the board room to the dining room.

Can be regarded as the Indochino for women, even though they don't make suits, HelenJean focuses on making THE dress that offers the perfect balance between professional and fashionable.

The entire collection is a total of 12 dresses with minute but well places differences to offer something for everyone.

Like a style but wish it came in a different color? No problem, the dress can be made in any style with any color from their swatch.

Best yet, since the dresses are made in your unique size, you get to decide on what you want to put on the label. Does the dress make you feel powerful? Strong? or Beautiful? Great, they can be part of the garment to act as a constant reminder of how you feel while wearing the dress.

Why should we be reduced to a number or letter by the clothes we wear? What we put on our bodies should make us feel powerful, strong, beautiful, sexy and confident.

I absolutely fell in love with the idea of owning something completely custom yet at an affordable price of $197.00.

HelenJean is also taking part in the True Fashion Show and Fundraiser. It's going to be a great cause which yours truly will be involved in as well. I will provide more details in a future post. Today's star is HelenJean.

Thanks to Kuna Photography's beautiful photos, the dresses are expertly captured.

I highly recommend having a look at this amazing local designer, proud to be inspiring women to own their greatness, one dress at a time.
