The Goods from First Pick Handmade
Vancouver, BC | First Pick Handmade returns this September to transform Heritage Hall into a 3,300-square foot pop-up with an exclusive shopping experience on Saturday, September 24 to Sunday, September 25, at 3102 Main Street, Vancouver, from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm each day. First Pick Handmade’s event features handmade fashions for your person and home providing personally and locally made high-quality, thoughtful products over volume.
“We are really aware of the globalization challenges with fast fashion, like shipping and manufacturing delays, union-based concerns and even the need for labour and specialized skills,” says Janna Hurtzig, First Pick Handmade Founder and Curator. “Events like First Pick Handmade encourage consumers to be very thoughtful about their purchases, get to know the people who created their garments or elements for their home, and helps to maintain a thriving, unique and independent design scene in Vancouver that is sustainable and eco friendly through small runs that don’t create needless waste.”
Trending for the First Pick Handmade fall show sees size inclusive and gender-neutral designs and packaging as local designers focus on inclusivity of all body types and identities.
