VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK – FASHION ON 4TH
By: Justine Barnes
Vancouver Fashion Week is not just a week full of runway, there are also other great events that are being held. One in particular took place on Thursday, September 19, called Fashion on West 4th in collaboration with Vancouver Fashion Week to promote local retailers.
After checking in at The Bimini Public House, which included a drink ticket and a VIP pass, discounts and MORE drinks and appetizers at participating stores on West 4th Ave, we had the pleasure of listening to Sarah Bancroft, Editor-in-Chief of Vitamin Daily, who did a fantastic job at keeping the room full of women (and one man) entertained. Before all of the ladies headed out to shop, a fashion show was put on to showcase the latest fall trends, showcasing items from the stores participating. Over 20 stores that took part in the event, including Judith Charles, Gravity Pope, XO Bella, Cocos Closet, Mavi Jeans, Miz Mooz, Leo Boutique, Wink and Willo, Two of Hearts and more.

It turned out to be a beautiful night to be shopping. Each store had a different discount and special promotion on offer. Once the shopping experience was over, we headed back to the Bimini Public House to receive our free gift bag full of products from the stores, Escents Aromatherapy, Lush, Coco’s Closet and a free lunch from Bimini Public House and other gifts! What a fab way to end the evening.
A great event to promote exploring the stores on 4th Avenue and meet some lovely people who have similar interests. If you missed the event you can still go out and support these stores on West 4th and support your city by shopping locally!
