Quick Look at Vancouver Fashion Week 2009

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Wednesday night kicked off Vancouver Fashion Week at Leone’s downtown (you can read BR’s review here) and today Canadian and local designers were showcased at Storyeum in Gastown.

Today it was all about the latest environmentally-conscious garb with an eco-friendly design spotlight and on Saturday VFW goes global with international, contemporary, and ready-to-wear design [see full schedule].

I interviewed photographer Kris Krug for an E!Online post last fall to get his thoughts about the local scene. “Events like these are a great way to stay connected to friends in the industry and meet the new up-and-coming photographers, models, stylists, makeup-artists etc. They’re all a part of what makes this industry thrive and function.”

To wrap it up, streetwear is the focus on Sunday including a show by local label To the Nines, then fashion meets music as VFW and Storyeum host a fabulous Juno Awards afterparty combined with the closing gala.

    Wow. Thanks for using my photo. I’m having a great time at VFW meeting alot of real cool people and reconnecting with friends I haven’t seen much over the last year.

    I was in the photo area yesterday and found the photographers to be warm and friendly. Really glad I’m here this year.

    VFW shows how talented the local fashion scene is (e.g. photographers, designers, models, stylists).
