It’s a wrap!!! One week of Vancouver Fashion Week is officially ended! With more than 100 amazing designers across the world, it was a blast! Now I wanted to share with you guys a recap of Vancouver Fashion Week (VFW) and highlights of the shows. But first let me share with you my look! =p

Now entering its 16th year and 27th season, Vancouver Fashion Week is one of the fastest growing fashion weeks in the world – creating a stage for talented local and international designers to reach global markets, fashion media and industry buyers. Since 2001, Vancouver Fashion Week has served as the gateway to designers who can’t show in the big events such as London, Paris, Milan and New York, and has helped launch many talents onto the world fashion stage.

VFW 2ND LOOK
VFW

I am a girl who would always go for vintage over modern looks. For the last day for VFW, I decided to wear a long floral skirt with side slips with a leather jacket from Topshop. And chunky accessories and colourful heels always fun up the look. =)

Gotta say one of my favourite parts of going to fashion week is to meet all the amazing and stylish fashionistas, and to make friends! VFW is definitely the place to spot Vancouver talents, or I should say, talents from all over the world! =p

Below are the highlights of VFW for you to find inspirations and see what went down here in Vancouver. Do not take the Lululemon & green tea city reputation for granted, you just might be surprised by the amount of amazing and sophisticated talent we had walking down the catwalk this season.  

ALEX YU

ALEX YU VFW

First up, let’s start with the Vancouver based designer Alex S.Yu’s collection reflects the contrasting emotions of the inspirations in the form of contemporary luxury women’s street wear.The collection plays with numerous menswear references and visually restricting tailoring elements such as a high and tight turtleneck or skin tight sleeves. Stark visual contrasts such as exaggerated looseness versus tightness in one piece are used abundantly in the collection to illustrate to very question of, Are we really as free as we think we are?

44511234, designed by one Vancouver man pursuing his passion, stood out as a top presentation to the captivated audience. This all white collection barred sans bridal. Models trickled down the runway barefoot to the natural sounds of falling rain. Texture stood at the forefront as textiles were layered in unexpected lengths and shapes to create voluminous silhouettes.

Now presenting you some of the most amazing jewellery designers and talents at VFW. This was definitely one of my favourite parts of the show.

Street Cat Designs

I was absolutely in love with Street Cat Designs by Pam. All of her pieces are so unique and timeless classy. The designer Pam claims that she doesn’t pay too much attention to the jewellery trends. She wants her pieces to be unique. Instead, she follow clothing trends, and work from that, both in style and colours.

Made of Swarovski crystals, gold and silver. Oh I gotta get more of these babes. <3

SLATE JEWELRY

Spotted these amazing acceories, segment with the Torn cuff and other beautiful pieces from SLATE JEWERLY 

Designer Christine’s always loved jewelry. She said from the moment that she started playing around with making some earrings, she was hooked. she had always dabbled with different art mediums, but nothing ever stuck.  But holding those first tools to bend some wire, everything fell into place. She’s never looked back.

LANA BETTY

lana betty -vfw

Lana Betty, inspired by my new natural and architectural surroundings, on the west coast, she’s always drawing. she doodles on post-it notes, in the margins of my books, filling sketchbooks on the bus. She’s elevated my artistic offering to a modern/contemporary feel, fusing my love of science, details, and new technologies with tangible interpretations; by creating 3d printed jewelry that captures client’s imaginations and challenges their perspectives on modern jewelry fabrication.

Anita Sikma

Designer Anita has always admired embellished hands, necklines and bodies. She stumbled upon Jewelry Art and Design as an elective. When she was young, all she ever said shewanted to be when she grew up was an artist and designing and handcrafting jewelry has not only fulfilled that dream, its modernized the stability of being a working and successful designer.
