Experiencing Vancouver Fashion Week - Part 2
A forewarning to all--this is an uber long post!
Back again with more updates on what's happening at Vancouver Fashion Week :) Unfortuntely Saturday began at 3:00 I had work until 4:15, so I missed a little bit in the beginning, but that's alright because Vonnie of oh so... vonnie told me the show was about an hour late to start anyways... ufufu, win!
Saturday's show consisted of the following designers:
Claire O'Connor ♥
The pink denotes what collections I was there for and the hearts mean that I really loved the collection/parts of the collection.
But before I get started talking about the show, here's the usual outfit post :)
Then there were pieces that I couldn't enjoy to the fullest. While I like pieces that play with shapes like these hard edged prints, the fit was rather unflattering and didn't show off the models' figures in the slightest. But hey, don't get me wrong, this is my personal opinion; I'm not claiming to be a fashion expert or anything... far from it in fact, ahaha.
I really like the detailing on the neckline for the above looks. Especially for the dress on the bottom. It's very origami-esque.
Super cute dress from the front and back. I love the print Claire O'Connor used in her designs. The navy paneling along the sides is also very flattering and slimming for the figure~ Also, the red straps on the back of the dress adds a nice contrasting splash of colour :)
The collar of this dress is very nicely structured--the stiff material covering the model's neck definitely elongates it. On the other hand, I question the wearability just 'cause it looks rather uncomfortable.
More pretty-print dresses with ruffle and origami-fold detailing...
This designer--Sadaf--and I have something in common: we both love a flowy chiffon look! There were so many pieces like this! And even though they had the flowing hems in common, each piece was refreshingly different from each other.
This was the finale for Sadaf's collection. There's so much detailing in this that it screams couture <3 It actually drew cheers from the audience as the model was walking to and fro~
The designer Jung Eun Lee (the one with her arms raised) came out to party with her models afterward. Look to the right--her shoes are awesome, but can you believe anyone can walk in shoes like this?!
After the show was over, Jamal, the producer of VFW brought Vonnie and I to the back to take pictures! There were probably about 7-10 people from the media taking pictures of Jung Eun Lee, her models, Jamal, and several other important people... keep an eye out! You make be able to see Vonnie and I in some photos somewhere out there! :D It was crazy though, there were so many flashes I didn't know where to look! T____T I'm hoping at least one of the pictures will turn out okay and that's the one I'll stumble across (if I do happen to chance across it).
