For post numero uno.... I give you my recap of Eco Fashion Week.
A little more than a month ago, I had the absolute pleasure of attending EFW in Vancouver, British Columbia for a work trip.
The trip brought back wonderful memories of my previous internship experience when I worked in show production. It was a taste of what I used to and still very much love - the fashion industry.
With five successful seasons, Vancouver Eco Fashion Week has brought the world of sustainability and fashion together - reminding designers and trendsetters the beauty of recycled fashion, vintage finds and thrifty treasures. Founder, Myriam Laroche, heads this initiative - supporting the future of sustainable and eco-friendly fashion. I had the pleasure of meeting her on behalf of a client I work with, Savers / Value Village. Value Village sponsored two shows - the first show featured looks styled by Nicolette Lang-Andersen, Mimi Lauzon and Tony Vu. The second was the 68 Pound Challenge featuring Canada's Project Runway finalist - Kim Cathers. Cathers upcycled 68 lbs. worth of clothing, textiles and more from Value Village into runway-ready looks... quite the challenge that resulted in a fabulous collection. To watch a little behind-the-scenes clip on Kim Cathers' amazing runway masterpiece, watch here.
Below are a few snippets from the show where I got to live-tweet the stunning looks and take in all of the creativity: (All photos were taken by me from my iPad unless otherwise noted by "image via")
Hope you enjoy the photos!
