VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK – STYLE DIARY – LOOK 1

For those that know me, from the moment I moved to Vancouver 4 years ago, my aim has been to highlight local designers and boutiques and showcase their talent either on my blog, in editorials or at local events. This season I’m more than honored to show off  a gorgeous piece by emerging designer Alex S. Yu’s from his s/s 2015 collection at Vancouver Fashion Week.

I love the exaggerated shape and structure of this top and the metallic patch work – bang on trend for Spring and Summer this year.  I wanted to draw out the pink and red tones in the plastic foil fabric, so I paired it with a lustrous red skirt and red lips and nails.

Outfit:  Top – Alex S. Yu / Skirt – H&M / Heels – Forever 21 / Clutch – Jennyfleur Loves / Earrings – Topshop

From Monday 16th to Sunday 22nd March, Vancouver Fashion Week will return to its downtown venue at Queen Elizabeth Plaza.

The Opening Gala, on Monday 16th March, will kickstart the week of seven days of showcase events, presenting the creative talents of over 30 designers from all over the world.

Vancouver Fashion Week founder Jamal Abdourahman is thrilled of the breadth of creative talent from new as well as returning designers. Jamal said,

“We are looking forward to sharing amazing creativity this season, with Vancouver shining the spotlight on lots of great local and international talent. We love to celebrate the diversity of fashion culture, and Vancouver provides this perfect platform to support emerging talent.”

Amongst the top-returning designers is Noe Bernacelli, whose Peruvian international style and beauty has been greatly received in Vancouver. He will be joined by Shravan Kumar whose motto, ‘Fashion is religion, than mere profession’, inspired his unconventional designs and use of textiles.

Also on the lineup is Korean designer Hong Kiyoung. Kiyoung is widely recognized for his luxury streetwear, which experiments silhouettes and colorful prints.

Every season, Vancouver Fashion Week continues to push its boundaries and strives to attract new and emerging designers from across the world.

This season it welcomes Chinese designer ILOVECHOC who mixes cute cartoon designs with luxury fabrics. Korean company JUKOjulie who has been greatly welcomed into the New York fashion scene and designer Paloma Sanchez who has been recognized as one of the 30 best jewelry designers in the world (‘Unique Book; The Best Jewelry Designers’.)

VFW also continues to support the city’s homegrown talent with the return of local designers Connally McDougall, Grandi’s Atelier and Sara Armstrong. All three designers are local to Vancouver and are inspired by the city.

Sara Armstrong said, “I am excited to be returning for FW15 at Vancouver Fashion Week. The team are a great group of creative minds and they are amazing to work with. They are setting the pace for up and coming Canadian fashion designers supporting them with an international market. It is the best fashion event in western Canada and I cannot wait for the Opening Gala.”

Partyskirts by SKOT was started by sisters, Lauren and Mariel Armstrong who originally created their skirts to fill a gap in their own wardrobes.  They quickly gained a heap of attention for their design and they created their signature party skirt along with the business, SKOT Apparel.  Brilliant!  These ladies are simply stunning and talented.  Head to their website at skotapparel.com to check out their latest fall collection which includes colors such as Ball Point Blue and Red Apple – oooooh!

Leah Alexandra Jewelry is one of a kind!  Leah’s line is available at The Cross, boutiques around the world and you can purchase items online at leahalexandra.com. Take a peak at her collection, it’s timeless, fresh and versatile – you will not be disappointed.  Leah is a graduate of Ryerson University in Toronto and we are happy she decided to make Vancouver home, where all of her jewelry is handmade. Meeting the women behind the work was refreshing.  She is incredibly kind and excited about what she does.
