Vancouver Fashion Week S/S2015 Highlights

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.

Zuhal Kuvan-Mills, designer and creator of GREEN EMBASSY, will be presenting her women’s and men’s S/S 15 collection, “Connected to Land”, which has already garnered great feedback from its showing at the PLITZS New York Fashion Week China, and just recently in July at New Zealand Eco-Fashion week.  With each fashion week presentation, GREEN EMBASSY’s collections become a strong source of conversation for the slew of unique elements that the line adds to the fashion industry.

Vancouver Fashion Week SS2015

The Opening Gala (Mon 9.15), Saturday and Sunday appeared to have drawn the best dressed crowds. There were quite a few guests I would love to feature. The same applies to the Designers. I attended 22 shows and I loved Aiaizel, Grandi’s Atelier, Lubov Tumanova and Green Embassy.
