In a city finding its legs in the global stage of Fashion, the collaborations of eager young talent is a palpable one. Fostered by Vancouver’s premiere Design schools, and jettisoned out into international awareness at Vancouver Fashion Week – whose spotlights burn brighter, drawing a wider audience each year – emerging designers depend on the local community of stylists, boutique buyers and style savvy street stalkers to build a narrative around their creations and give them life.
In this spirit, and with Vancouver Fashion Week’s Autumn Winter 2015 season just around the corner, we invited fourteen of Vancouver’s style set to don the wears of some of our most exciting local Design talent: Sara Armstrong, Alex S Yu, Evan Clayton, Connally McDougall, Jessica Jeehyun Lee, Taranjit K Cheema, Le Monde Gris, Some Product, and Grandi’s Atelier. In the sprawling sunlit space of Blanche Macdonald Centre’s Atelier Campus, from whence many of Vancouver’s most anticipated Fashion offspring has sprung, bloggers, street style snappers and design scene doyennes alike gathered to incorporate last season’s coveted pieces into each of their unique style equations.
