Hello lovely readers!
As some of you may know, it was Eco Fashion Week in Vancouver from October 5-7. I had the opportunity to stop by W2 Storyeum and check out some of the closing festivities on Friday. I couldn’t stay for Jeff Garner’s show, but I did get a chance to take a look at some of the designer displays and snap a few photos. These were some of my favourites:
Bianca Barr designs big, bold pieces that re-use vintage materials. Her pieces have a girlish flare while still remaining edgy. Check out her Etsy page here.
This display caught my eye right away. Titania Inglis is a fashion designer from New York who makes use of organic and dead stock fabrics. She dyes her materials by hand using plants and plant extracts. Her designs are very stark and minimal; they look toward the future (both with their construction and sustainability in mind), yet they also focus on functionality in the present. See her entire collection in more detail here.
Who doesn’t love feather hair clips? Carmen West Creative has some great ones in addition to their impressive collection of vintage inspired jewellery, accessories and home decor. Check them out here.
Anna Talbot graduated from Emily Carr and has gained quite a bit of exposure for her unique clothing designs as well as other artistic projects. Her clothing bridges the gap between fashion and fine art, at once highly constructed and inevitably organic. Learn more about her work here.
Adorn by Samouce is anything but subtle. Her pieces are very dramatic and have a somewhat theatrical flare, but I love that about her designs! Be sure to check out the rest of her collection here.
