Despite the rain, the crowd seemed to be in good spirits, much thanks to the MC for the evening, Symone Says. She is known around Vancouver for being one of the best performing drag queens with infectious whit and charm.
Here are the collections that stood out for us on Day 3 of Vancouver Fashion Week.
Pouneh Askarian’s creations this season were stunning! The models looked elegant while walking the runway in the collection that consisted mostly of black, grey, cream and white. A pleasing variety of fabric manipulation added to the depth of this line.
Nadia + Zehra
The London based, twin sister fashion designers energized us with their loud and in-your-face collection. Staying true to form, they produced looks full of mixed and matched prints, metallics, faux fur and colours. Nadia + Zehra were a huge hit this season, just as they were two seasons season ago and we are looking forward to seeing what they do next!
We love everything about this designer and his clothing. Atsushi Nakashima’s collection consisted of futuristic sporty pieces prominently in a neutral palette with some serious pops of neon yellow and green. Most items were made with trending neoprene, enabling the designer to take advantage by incorporating some beautiful folds and structure to the line.
