Left and Right – the Armstrong sisters of Partyskirts and center – Leah Alexandra
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.
This event was a huge success and photographer, The Collective You, captured the event beautifully – see his pics below. Champagne flowed, treats were gobbled up and the guests had a blast celebrating these three local and talented women.
