9/16: Day 1 of VFW S/S 2015 – Rebekah Adams, Thabo Makhetha, Akira Kuwabara

The heady rush of the opening night gala dissipated around 4am on Tuesday am. Coincidentally that is when my phone finally stopped buzzing and blinking.

My dreams were filled with confusing collages of potential outfits for the following days and ultimately had turned nightmarish when my alarm went off.

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!
