09/15 Opening Gala of Vancouver Fashion Week S/S 2015

Game on! Tentology created the new venue for Vancouver Fashion Week literally in the days before the gala launch of the Spring/Summer 2015 event. It was a make it or break moment for owner Jamal Abdourahman and a risk that paid off. Walking up to the giant tented structure made my heart flutter. Visually stunning and so familiar. Must be all the hours invested Project Runway that makes the tent very ‘MB Fashion Week‘ exciting. That and following Vancouverites Dominique Hanke and Joshua D Langston‘s adventures last week in New York!

My Experience with Isabel Marant for H&M

For the past two months I’ve read breathless hype in the mainstream fashion press about the Isabelle Marant capsule collection for H&M. The Isabel Marant aesthetic can be best summed up as embodying that ‘cool downtown girl thing’. Nothing prissy, nothing frilly, no flowers. I like to think of her style as the Gallic Alexander Wang. Lots of black, lots of leather, and a few studs for good measure. The bottom line is – her stuff is edgy- but pricey!
