In March 2014, I was in my seat watching shows at Vancouver Fashion Week F/W 14. One night a new designer took to the runway that floored me – Zuhal Kuvan-Mills of Green Embassy – a series called “Earth.”  During the week I managed to connect with her in the showroom to get up close and personal with this talented artist and her collection to learn a little about what she was doing.

Environmental activist, fashion designer and artist Kuvan-Mills believes art and fashion impact our emotions and can move us to value our blue planet. Currently supporting the world’s leading direct action ocean conservation organization, Sea Shepherd (Australia) she said she was compelled to return to west-coast Canada for Vancouver Fashion Week after hearing about the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion and its threat to local waters.  This is the Perth designer’s fourth time down the runway of Vancouver Fashion Week, and her Empty Ocean’s collection is in perfect sync with water conservation, and she wanted to share that with the Vancouver audience.

It was a whirlwind last week in Vancouver and I have just now caught my breath enough to post about what happened. This is just a quick ‘taste’ of what I got up to – there is plenty more, trust me!

I was so used to the feel of Australia, its smell, and colours. Early in my visit, I was able to discover the new backdrop of a different continent and land. Here was my first experience of an on-the-land photo shoot with model and socialite, @SkyeBerryPie aka Skye Natasha Lintott.

Raising the Hemline

The Public Art project coordinated by Patti Desante, Raising the Hemlines, was launched. My blank canvas dresses were decorated by the public, with the first piece of artwork done by myself and placed on the dress worn by a model at the Downtown Vancouver Farmers Market.

Green Embassy at Vancouver’s Fall/Winter Fashion Week

March 26, 2014 6:14 pm

GE

Green Embassy is Australia’s first internationally recognized organically certified fashion label and Canada got its first taste of the line during this year’s Vancouver Fashion Week. Running this year from the 18th to the 24th of March, the week has been drawing crowds of celebrities, fashionistas and media from across the country and around the world to showcase each chosen designer’s latest looks.

Showing from the label’s ‘Night in the Bush’ collection, models strutted their stuff down the runway in one-of-a-kind handmade designs (which run anywhere from $2 000 to $15 000). Green Embassy is designed, knitted, stitched and embroidered from scratch by Australian artist and label creator, Zuhal Kuvan-Mills at her home in the western Australian bush. Using 100% certified organic Australian alpaca, merino, silk and organic natural fibers, she crafts garments that are inspired by her surroundings.
