Wednesday, March 21st, 2018 – Vancouver, BC –at the David Lam Hall in downtown Vancouver, was a night to highlight local design talents from Vancouver and Canada as a whole.
CRAZYYABAI, the brainchild of 16 year old high school student Ming Lim, electrified the runway with her collection of unconventional looks inspired by the punk energy of Tokyo.
Mesh jackets, fishnet sweaters, and bright plaids were covered in dramatic graffiti and accented with chains.
Bold black eyeliner topped it off to set a rebellious tone.
Against a soundtrack of heavy rainfall, Studio Jason Sui’s unisex collection highlighted a style of sophisticated everyday wear, each garment striking a balance between luxury and versatility.
An imaginative attention to detail, with subtly unique elements including zippers open at seams creating new shapes.
A standout look; a beautiful a-line white gown featuring rainbow coloured triangle embellishments concentrated around the bodice and dispersing downwards.
With an aim to break stereotypes, designers Luis Padilla and Ana Carpio from Toronto based brand SUPRAMORPHOUS featured a genderless series of clothing.
Collection Anthracite, inspired by black diamond, offered an all-black colour palette with matte and shiny textures, and fringing breaking up sharp cut pieces.
King and Reign closed the night with a show-stopping collection that exuded elegance.
Ethereal gowns in soft hues of blush and aqua graced the runway with a dreamlike quality.
Plunging necklines and bodices of feathery lace paired with trailing skirts of airy chiffon that floated around the runway.
The collection exquisitely expresses femininity as a work of art.
