It was a packed house at the Shangri-La! We want to give a special THANK YOU to Vernard Goud of LuvnGrace Entertainment and Regina Novikov from the Shangri-La Hotel for making this GORGEOUS space available to us for the evenings festivities.
Twice a year, Jamal Abdouraman, owner and found of VFW, manages to find a balance in the fashion presented on the runway - hard and soft, casual and couture, minimalist and excessive - so that when you leave each day you are visually and emotionally fulfilled. On Day #5 the two collections I went to see, Vancouver's Grandi's Atelier and Brazil's Ocksa were indeed polar opposites. Grandi's Atelier is known for couture finery and Ocksa for earth-friendly organic sourcing.
Join us this Saturday night at the XISHI LOUNGE for a special preview and Sample Sale of highly touted UK based fashion designer Connally McDougall. The designer will be showcasing in Vancouver Fashion Week a week later on September 21. The event runs from 7pm to 9pm - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
I had the pleasure to meet Connally last season at Vancouver Fashion Week where she was showing as the Emerging BC Fashion Designer sponsored by NICHE Magazine. She was sweet, quiet and very hungry.
