Five minutes with model Jordan Eggert on VFW – F/W 2015

L&V: “At what point in your life did you decide you wanted to be a male model and why?” JE: “A couple years ago I think it was, kind of just as a thought like “wouldn’t it be cool to be a model?” never really thought it was a possibility though. And isn’t the why obvious? Haha. Getting paid to have your photograph taken, wear all these cool clothes, go all these places. From the outside looking in the modelling lifestyle seems so dreamy and desirable.” L&V: “Can you tell us a bit about yourself, where are you from and how long have you been modeling?” JE: “I’m from Vancouver, and been modelling for about a year now.” L&V: “If you weren’t pursuing a career in modeling what would you be doing?” JE: “Pretty much the same I’m doing now except more of it. I enjoy creating arts, so probably more of that, an exhibition in a gallery maybe?” L&V: “Who or what inspires you?” JE: “Inspirations change almost daily for me, but lately the …

Blogger Spotlight: Countdown to Vancouver Fashion Week A/W 2015

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 …

Interview – Hong Kiyoung – Prelude to VFW – F/W 2015

What can we expect from the Hong Kiyoung label for Fall/Winter 2015? Tell us the story behind this collection. “There is only one goal in our brand – making the most elegant streetwear. In this season, I got inspiration from the homeless people who I met on Main Street in Vancouver. There was one homeless guy who was the most inspiring to me, and he really was making a graceful elegant figure and even with a gracious manner. After I saw him, I started to research how they dress to make the most graceful homeless look. Certainly it is not that we are homeless. However I think there are some aspects of ‘graceful’ or ‘elegance’ in them. I wanted to challenge myself to make this look as great as others.” We understand that new Artists influencing the contemporary arts are an inspiration point for you. Whose work is resonating with you right now? “Designer Haider Ackermann, who showcased at Paris Fashion Week & Salvador Dali.” You’re a huge fan of vibrant, experimental prints and patterns. …

Interview & Style-Feature ·Widget (Nancy Neumann)·

How would you describe your own look? “It is very natural, I rarely use make up. Most of the time I am going for a cool, cheeky and especially easygoing look.” For this shooting you selected a floral patterned bikini top, a denim shirt and a cozy knit! What are your favourites for a nicely selected women closet? “My favourites are a comfortable bra, which is also beautiful and impressive. All of those named items are must haves for an easy feminine women closet.” It is all about accessoires, what is your must have? “There is actually no accessoire which is a must have item for me, but I complete my look with a few of them.” We are in love with your ginger hair and freckles – which part of your body is your favourite? “My strongest features are my arms and my face in general. I am lucky that my parents gave me such nice genes which I really value. Besides beauty comes from the inside and the outside shouldn´t come to the fore.” Is there anything about …
