Vancouver Fashion Week day 7

Sunday, March 25th, 2018 – Vancouver, BC – marks the grand finale of a full week of fashion shows at the David Lam Hall in downtown Vancouver.

First up, local brand This has James presented a sophisticated collection of menswear. Classic pieces such as trench coats, pinstriped trousers, and crisp white shirts were juxtaposed with modern detailing such as studs along shoulder seams and floral printed segments.

NOT DEAD YET, an experimental menswear label from Vancouver explored identity and sexuality in the collection SHAME. Models walked with attitude wearing latex in black, vibrant yellow, and acid green with white text ‘pics?’ and ‘loading’ emblazoned across garments.

A duo show meshed the work of US based brands Yuner Shao x Zherui Huang seamlessly together. Yuner Shao’s creations acted as a canvas to carry anti-propaganda messages fusing graphic prints in primary colors. Bright yellow patch pockets and loose belts enhanced the youthful vibe.

Zherui Huang’s casual unisex collection had a focus on technical details. Zips, buckles, and laces infused a sports aesthetic into loose silhouettes with asymmetric shaping. Men’s bold blue wide leg pants featured hanging straps and contrast yellow detail for a modern, fresh look.

Marronier College of Fashion Design from Japan presented two emerging designers Mono Watanabe and Rinka Hyodo. Mono Watanabe took us into the future with technical fabrics and fastenings. Greys were placed with accents of green, orange, and purple in layered pieces. Matching knee pads and high zip up neck pieces brought the collection together.

Rinka Hyodo’s unisex collection pushed an eclectic individual style. An oversized grey sweater was worn over a full length tiered skirt with sparkled edging. Silver eyelets added detail, whilst a textured hood covered in spikes created a unique look.

Next, designer Nadrey Laurent from Ghana showcased a sleek line of figure-flattering dresses with a clerical inspiration. An extensive use of black and white was a nod to the Catholic nun Louise, the Black Nun of Moret, with prints of her character adorning the fronts of looks. A black full-length dress with gold floral detail and high ruffled neckline stole the show.

Milena Rojas brought modern pieces to the runway with computer code prints on transparent PVC layers. This Chilean designer has experimented with texture, utilizing tubes and curved lines of beadwork to adorn sweaters, dresses, and culottes. A dark color palette of blacks and forest greens brings a moody feel to FW18.

Sunday showcased a strong variation of design aesthetics with an evening of delights to end the FW18 season at Vancouver Fashion Week.

Vancouver Fashion Week day 6

Saturday, March 24th, 2018 – Vancouver, BC – at the David Lam Hall in downtown Vancouver marked a sensational evening of design talent from across the world.

Returning designer Kirsten Ley stunned the crowd with a dark and powerful collection. ‘Nero’ featured a considered color palette of blacks, neutrals, and deep greens. Sculptured leather was juxtaposed with sheer feminine features, with fitted midi skirts and straight leg pants. An artistic expression for FW18.

Blue denim chaps and contrast edge collars brought a western vibe to Evan Clayton’s FW 18 collection NAUSICAÄ, a visual exploration of the classic Studio Ghibli film. Flounced silk voile and crystal clear rhinestone embellishments brought out a feminine feel with a muted palette of black, pewter, navy, and soft nude.

KO by Katherin Olivos kicked off the show with a trio contemporary dance performance. This Chilean designer, inspired by the diverse landscapes from land to sea, has designed gowns that create movement featuring hand-crafted words and embroidery on heavy and light fabrics. Plus-sized models paraded their fantastical voluminous structured dresses down the runway, with elegant glitter prints catching the light. A line of showpieces, with matching headwear and makeup, the finale showcased Canadian and Chilean flag inspired looks.

Inspired by the transition into the new year, YoonKyung Jang for Korean brand SETSETSET has designed festive prints featuring graphic stripes and white florals in bright colors of red, blue, pale pink, lime green, and yellow. Peplum waists and frilled hems give an ultra-feminine feel to fitted skirts and jackets which are paired with red tights and pointed heels.

Japanese designer Nozomi Kuwahara presented a playful collection in a bold color palette of yellows, pinks, purples, and reds. Hints of humor shine through the line with a yellow high turtleneck totally covering the face, a mock crocodile leather dress complete with eyeball embellishments, and colorful ‘shoe monsters’ adorning the model’s feet. Experiments in fluffy faux fur and a red sparkly ‘tongue’ wrap around dress give a youthful feel for FW18.

Eros Tolentino, an Italian designer, featured ruffled dresses with overlapping fabrics. Inspired by the true story of 52, the loneliest whale in the world, Tolentino uses raw fabrics and oversized silhouettes to give a soft feel to an artistic, conceptual line. Basic staple pieces such as button downs, trousers, and tailleur are the fundamentals for the textile manipulations.

Vancouver local, Alex S. Yu returns to VFW for FW18. His unisex collection ‘The Crimson Demur’ featured loose structured silhouettes with subtle patterns. In classic Alex S. Yu style there was a casual feminine feel with bright reds complimented by both deep and pastel pinks in mini and floor-length looks. For menswear, we saw statement bomber jackets, shorts, and pocketed T-shirts.

Vancouver Fashion week highlights

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018 – Vancouver, BC

Tuesday evening at the Vancouver runway started with a succession of local BC based designers at the David Lam Hall in downtown Vancouver. Atelier Grandi showcased new collection Avium, bringing elements of nature to the runway. Inspired by winter birds of the north, classic silhouettes in hues of canary yellow and cardinal red were contrasted with stark winter white. Textures of airy feathers and warm, soft furs were layered upon luxurious silk and satin to reflect Grandy’s focus on timeless elegance and beauty.

Luxurious, baroque fabrics in deep blues, reds and gold metallics accented with lace trims made a statement in the Nura collection by Nauni J, a Vancouver designer. Full skirts with tulle were contrasted with figure-hugging body suits and exposed backs. Every piece evoked a sense of glamour and luxury.

JIJIN Design of Indianapolis presented a modern, edgy collection of two-piece looks. Minimalist metallic slip dresses laid the foundation for the artistic overcoats of shiny PVC and vinyl, detailed with geometric shapes hanging off sleeves and towering on the shoulders. Sleek hair with bold eye makeup tied the look together for a futuristic feel.

Si Mee Collections brought one showstopper after another, evoking a sense of feminine flair and confidence. Elegant silhouettes with ruffled high necks, corsets, and couture chiffon were a reminder of European eras past. Sheer details and metallic bodysuits subtly contrast the light white fabrics and sheer georgette. Based out of Nevada, Rosemarie Macklin creates Avant Garde designs for all women, worthy of being seen and recognized.

Beautiful oriental prints with delicate flowers and shapes filled the runway for Baroque Japanesque. A classic color palette of deep golds, reds, and blacks set the tone for FW18, with prints adorning silky layers. Japanese designer Shiori Watanabe has created a wide selection of printed pieces to adapt to your wardrobe from skin-tight leggings to kimonos; the exquisite print is placed throughout with matching umbrellas as a highlight piece.

Allison Nicole Designs from Maryland, U.S showcased a line of elegant femininity, with soft, flowing silks and satins that gently caress and accentuate the body, each garment adorned with signature, intricate florals. A romantic collection inspired by the female form with muted off-white, blush, pink, and nude shades. A-line waists and free-flowing silhouettes are enhanced with delicate lace, embroidery, sparkling embellishments, and tulle tiers.

An eventful evening of interesting textures, flare, and sophistication.
