Dominique Ansari’s Runway Show At VFW

Interviews & Exclusives

Privet everyone ! Sigh, I was lucky that I was able to have front row seats for all of the runway shows that took place on way back on Saturday (March 19th), simply because 1) My feet in my Philip Lim heels remained happy, and 2) because it let me take photos of the designers collections without peoples heads and shoulders getting in the way! I also enjoyed seeing a lot of the evening collections because I don’t have a reason to invest in evening wear, but I find the fantasy to be irresistible. (but that’s an entirely different story)

Designer Danya Weevers ‘The Power Of Women’ At VFW + What Inspired Her

Interviews & Exclusives

Hey Everyone I hope you’re enjoying all of the Vancouver Fashion Week collections that I’ve been adding! I know I took a lot of photos, and I still have quite a few more runway collections to show you. Today this VFW 2016 edition post is about Danya Weevers collection “The Power Of Women”. Danya Weever’s is a fashion designer from the Netherlands, who was inspired by her internships at Elsien Gringhuis and Dennis Diem. Her collections are often presented twice a year online, and this year at Vancouver Fashion Week. Danya’s designs can be described as minimalistic, while she acquires further inspiration from the human being- of their purity, or vulnerability…she’s even encouraged women to write in a diary and expose who they are on the inside to her, this is just one of the many ways Danya proves to be a Designer who wants her clothing to reflect who we are. 

Danny Reinke’s ‘Let’s Get Lost’ Collection At VFW & Mini Interview

Interviews & Exclusives

Hey Everyone! There was one show that everyone seemed to feel a sense of nostalgia for at Vancouver Fashion Week. Envision coats with teddy bears attached, to whimsical skirts that channel all of your favourite childhood memories. Danny Reinke was one of the designers who showed off his collection “Let’s Get Lost” at Vancouver Fashion Week’s Runway. (Danny Reinke also was one of the participant designers with Elephantasia.)Danny is a designer based in Berlin, Germany, who grew up in the small fishing village of  Mönkebude, Near the Baltic Sea. His home has been the source inspiration for his past collections, making him aware of nature, and the importance of sustainability.

I wasn’t able to sit down with Danny Reinke, but decided to email him for a mini interview to discuss the collection I saw on the VFW runway. I threw a few questions his way that discuss how inspiration finds him, his eco conscious attitude, and he also answered one of my readers questions. He often works with recycled fabrics which lead him to developing Danny Upcycling, and is actively involved in raising awareness for causes- including the protection of Africa’s wild animals. So don’t forget to check out the interview & the photos I took from front row at Vancouver Fashion Week Fall Winter 2016!

Interviews & Exclusives

Privet Everyone! Wow, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed from all of the images from Fashion Week, but I’m almost done editing all of them! I’m also working on putting in content to make the posts come together. I’m sure you also might have noticed that I actually finished one post and put it up ASAP, and that was for Noe Bernacelli since I was so excited to share his collection with you. I was also happy that I got to sit in front row for his show, it was foot friendly, and a little bit easier to snap all of the photos I needed to get for you.

She’s tiny, and fragile in appearance and has had her fair share of ballet, but Sasha Luss never was the type who played with barbies, and never dreamed of becoming a model in her childhood. The Russian model’s career began in 2007 but it was the 2013-14 season that truly took her career to the next level.
