Dreaming Of Next Summer At Vancouver Fashion Week


by Robyn Yager | For me, the big takeaways from this year’s Vancouver Fashion Week (just passed) at the Chinese Cultural Centre in Chinatown were the Spring/Summer 2014 womenswear collection from Mexican designer Angela Reyna, the line from Peruvian fashion designers El Closet De Mi Hermania, and the gorgeous shodding from footwear designers Warmi. The catwalk was a revolver of international talent that saw Reyna playing with volume, vibrant colours, and unconventional materials, El Closet De Mi Hermana’s pieces focusing on loungewear, daywear, evening wear and outerwear (in lace, sheer fabrics, whites and pastels), and the shoes! Oh my god, the shoes!

  1. Those ladies look stunning! As much as I love those summer looks, I’m definitely looking forward to fall fashion as well! I’m also loving the idea of the urban casual look for the fall. There’s a video about it on YouTube at http://youtu.be/Stpo4f2Q9oo and I’m looking forward to rocking my new wardrobe this fall!
