This season Vancouver Fashion Week had more shows that focused around sustainability. Elephantasia was a unique experience that intended to show us that we need to be aware of what’s going on in our world. That we can’t forget that we’re not the only ones who inhabit the earth, and that sometimes our greed can have detrimental effects on the creatures who share, and inhabit the world with us.
The runway was transformed by tribal drumming that grabbed the audiences attention, along with powerful imagery, presentations, guest speaker Dr.Jake Wall, and outfits designed by numerous fashion designers who feel equally passionate towards putting an end to the illegal poaching, and harvesting of ivory from African and Asian elephants. Designers were inspired by just about everything there is to this majestic land mammal. While models furthered the mood by wearing haunting, tribal themed makeup.
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.
Hey everyone, I have an announcement to make! I will be returning to Vancouver Fashion Week F/W 2016 starting March 20th. This time around I want to do things differently, and do something that is a little more interactive here on the Zaychishka style blog! Last time I attended fashion week I took images from the runway, interviewed a few designers; but this season I want to do things that you would love to read and see!
Privet Matryoshkas! This is the last post about VFW for the fall/winter 2015 showcase! This post is all about covering behind the scenes, to show you a glimpse of what it looks like behind the runway. Expect to see shoes laying everywhere, and racks of clothing just waiting to be worn by the models before the audience sees. Backstage is also the place where you can talk to the designers, and watch how they prepare for their runway debuts.
