Yes , it's official , it's the end of summer and it's the first day of fall ( my favorite season ) , rain and leaves falling from the trees it's such so amazing and stunning , the colors and the smell , I always enjoy a sunny and cold afternoon walk thought the city admiring all the beautiful shades of browns from the trees. So GOOD-BYE shorts, and welcome fur :).
Officially the shows at Vancouver Fashion Week SS2013 started last night , the shows were incredible , full of color and fun.
Me as usual was wearing color, honoring the Spring 2013, the place started to fill up with all the amazing fashion people (locally-internationally) who were excited to see the collections of the night.
There were in total 7 shows and they were all exquisite, but the ones that impressed me the most were Gert Johan Coetzee and RG Sanchez.
South African designer that gave us a lot of neon, feathers, over the edge pieces and lights. Yes the show opened up with a dress that had lights on the shoulders and in the skirt part, so magic.
The collection I would called it a bit "witchy", like it came out from a witche's wardrobe, I looooove it sooooo much. Those green plastic hand coverts, that amazing green feathers cropped jacket, I would wear it on a heartbeat, MAJOR.
I got the opportunity to see Gert-Johan before the show and I wished him good luck in the show ( which clearly he didn't need , it was flawless) .
Arriba Mexico Cabrones!!!! Sanchez' collection inspired by his on mexican roots was beautiful, classy and sophisticated keeping a lot of the traditional mexican colors and inspired garments, it was just divine.
I have a crush , I must confess, I love Nicolette-Lang Andersen. She has style, class and she is such an amazing person. And we definitely had fun last night at the Opening Gala of Vancouver Fashion Week. I just decided that we are the unofficial faces of VFW, as you can tell we are great at making faces. Scroll down and see pics on order and you will get what happened.
It was a night like no other, lights, music, performances and fashionistas were surrounding me . As soon as I step into the place I could feel the magic in the air, saying hi to all my friends, having a drink and celebrating fashion.
The opening gala for this year's Fashion Week was absolutely marvelous. As my 5th time covering for fashion week I feel very privileged of get invited and be in the VIP area. Yeaaaahhh. It feels so nice to be even considered with my accent and my crazy outfits.
What to expect for the rest of the week? Well, obviously a lot of what I just described above, I will be covering all the shows and I will be keeping you updated with anything and everything that will be happening during the fashion week.
Below I give you a few photos of how the event went. To see the full album click .
