Dynamite Gift Card Giveaway

Comments 176 by Rebecca Bollwitt

If you were to ask me my personal style, I would tell you that I don’t really have any. I wear jeans, sometimes skirts, and a top that suits the occasion. In home in my office my “uniform” includes t-shirts usually have technology or social media tones — like the HootSuite t-shirt I’m wearing as I compose this post. However, everyone needs a little black dress, a cute top (to go with those favourite jeans), or a versatile skirt that they can wear in almost any situation.

When it comes to fashion, local designers and Canadian companies are actually quite easy to find in Vancouver. Robson, West 4th, Gastown, and East Vancouver are speckled with homegrown designs, talent, shop owners, and franchises. One in particular is Quebec-based Dynamite.
