The FAM Favorites From Fashion Week
For my 7th season as a Media Partner for Vancouver Fashion Week, I was excited to see the new budding talent of a forever growing industry. Accompanied by my good friend and colleague Chau Le of CLE Management, the entire display of creative arts was another great experience within the land of Vancity. While each brand deserves a kudos for conjuring up the strength, preparation, and devotion it takes to display their designs on the runway, I have compiled a list of 14 designers that captured my eye aesthetically, artistically, and with wearability.
Blara Organic House designs their collections with an environmentally sound ideology. Their fabrics are organically grown and colored with natural plant dyes in order to save the skin from toxic materials. Focused on the bodies of the youth, their designs were drenched in baby blue and carnation pink but resonated a very hiphop-esque feel with baggy arms and oversized pockets. Overall, the entire collection was gentle on the eyes and could easily be dressed up or down for a completely diverse experience.
