The sun was shining and for my final Vancouver Fashion Week, I decided to go with timeless black. Inspired by one of my favourite designers showing that afternoon, Shravan Kumar, I brought a bit of India with me – wearing my mum’s vintage jewellery. My colour choice didn’t echo Shravan’s actual collection, which was beautifully inspired by the Tribes of India and brought with it an array of colours and prints; but what I loved about this look was the play on textures: my silk dress worn on top of leather leggings, juxtaposing femininity with hard-hitting edge.

Plunging necklines are daring, but this one provided the perfect jewellery-showcasing backdrop. As much as I tried to go full-on black, I couldn’t resist a little colour à la blue-suede platforms + red-studded belt. With Ryan back with me to watch our last day of shows, bringing his A-game in that amazing suit, it was a great end to a fabulous week.

Printed Pencils | VFW Day 4

I decided to bring a little work-wear for day 4 at Vancouver Fashion Week, teaming a timeless chambray with an office-appropriate printed pencil skirt. Casual fridays at the office allows a little more flexibility with my outfits, which means stepping away from corporate greys & bringing in a bit more colour, and creating an easy transition from day to runway.

Although I missed my front-row partner in crime, as Ryan decided to make a couple of catwalk appearances (he rocked the runway, by the way), it was so fun getting to spend the afternoon watching the shows with Sabrina and Jeremy from streetscout.me. As you can see from the first photo above, the pouring rain didn’t stop Jeremy from snagging an awesome shot – in 10 seconds, flat! Ryan quickly joined us for the last couple of shows and his off-duty model style was at it’s best: showing us all how to be masters in layering.
