Black and white seemed to be an ongoing, very enjoyable theme for day 3 of Vancouver Fashion Week. While the silhouettes changed, black and white stayed the same, looking incredibly chic. Another common theme was pairing these structured, yet over sized looks with an Oxford shoe.
LaSalle College is a regular and much-anticipated show at Vancouver Fashion Week, with this season being its 11th season. It is always so refreshing to witness such young creativity, executed with such maturity.
AMAZING. Adam-Lin Bungang’s dresses kept to the black and white theme perfectly while playing with different proportions. They were truly something any women would want in their closet. These dresses were a little sporty and very chic!
Yicheng (Eric) Chen
This was Yicheng (Eric) Chen’s second time showing with Vancouver Fashion Week. We really enjoyed his take on the roaring 20’s. He created pieces with low hip lines and used feathers to evoke the 1920’s.
The inspiration behind Shunan Zeng’s collection was found in women, post World War I, representing freedom and hope. We loved the cohesive colour palette of muted tone and the creative panels on both the front and back of the garments – creating a fresh and modern twist on the classic boyish style.
Su Yang created dresses that were very chic with dropped waistlines. It was very noticeable that she created these pieces inspired by menswear, with the addition of embellishments, making it extremely tres chic!
Headlining the night was Sara Armstrong and we absolutely loved the trouser pants that she created for F/W 15 that donned cross-over origami style panels! Each look was captivating and interesting. Her pieces were oversized while still being perfectly tailored.
We caught up with Sara and asked her a few quick questions. Click HERE to see more!
