This week marks the 15th season of Vancouver Fashion Week(VFW), as this week the bi-annual event will be displaying the Spring/Summer collections of 2009. It should be noted that Vancouver has come a long way in terms of fashion and a younger and smaller scale international city it is events like this that puts local designers and models on the map.
Here is a snippet from the official press release:
In recent years, Vancouver Fashion Week has featured internationally acclaimed designers such as Versace and Anna Sui in addition to emerging designers, such as Patricia Fieldwalker, David Dickson and Sanjana Jon.
Throughout the week I’ll be interviewing models, profiling local designers and writing up reviews delivered via my intern, who shall be known as Jr. Dweller. Take good care of him ladies.
Check back later on this morning for the complete schedule of shows and after parties.
