Let there be fashion!

The graduates of the Vancouver Community College Fashion Arts Program showed their creations last night at a fantastic show held at Rocky Mountaineer Station in Vancouver. The show featured the work of 21 graduating fashion designers, each of whom had 4 pieces in the show. The production was spectacular with great models, makeup, hair styling, music, lighting and of course catering! But the emerging designers were centre stage with some incredible work.

I took as many photos of the outfits as I could! I have previously photographed the designs of one of the graduates, Ana Jost, and I love her work. It was a pleasure to see her graduating and finishing this phase of her fashion design career.

All the designers’ work was very impressive and I’m looking forward to seeing more from them in the future, and I hope to use their designs in my photography as well.

You can view all of the outfits in the music video below, or view the photos  here.

Congratulations to all the graduates for your amazing work!

Eco Fashion Week Vancouver 2010 – Green Fashion

September 29th, 2010 No comments

Eco Fashion Week (EFW) is taking place in Vancouver on Sept 27-30, 2010. It is being held at the Creekside Community Centre, which was part of the Olympic Village during the 2010 Winter Games.

Vancouver has a goal to become the greenest city by 2020 and EFW will help to educate the fashion industry and fashion-buying public about environmentally friendly best-practices and to promote those business that have good green practices.

A Green Advisory Board helped to evaluate the fashion designers, retailers and manufacturers using the following criteria:

  • Fair/ethical trade
  • Local
  • Custom/tailor made
  • Organic/Natural textiles and materials
  • Recycled/reborn
  • Vintage/second hand
  • Vegan/animal free/cruelty free
  • Eco printing
  • Fabric waste reduction
  • Green marketing
  • Socially responsible
  • Resource efficiency
  • Eco-certification

These practices can also apply to other industries and I will be looking carefully at my photography business to see what I can do to make sure it is green too!

On Sept 28, I attended runway shows featuring the spring/summer 2011 collections by designers emesha, Lara Miller, Eden, Nixxi, Lav and Kush, and Kim Cathers. Here is a quick look at the the collections by emesha and Lara Miller. The rest of the designers have been posted here.

UBC Fashion Show

I attended the the UBC Fashion Show on March 20, 2010 at the UBC Aquatic Centre, which was a pretty cool venue for the show. The runway was installed above the outdoor pool, which made for some interesting shots with the reflections in the water.  The UBC International Relations Students Association presented the show, entitled “Fashion is Freedom,” an exploration of the theme of fashion as art and how its expression reflects political freedom. The show featured the work of  designers from Vancouver.
