I had so much fun shooting with Sabrina and Jeremy from streetscout.me a few weeks back, before fashion week and when there was definitely still a brisk winter chill in the air. We decided to shoot at Lafarge Lake, with the beautiful fountains and not-yet-blooming winter trees. The sun was deceptively shining – teasing Spring temperatures that hadn’t quite made an appearance – but it made for a beautiful setting, and was perfect for Jeremy’s amazing photo-taking skills.
Sabrina had asked to shoot me in a fashion week inspired look, and also me a few questions related to my style, which you can find the answers to, along with more photos, here. Colour-contrasts are great for high-impact looks that demand attention. I sometimes find myself playing it safe when it comes to my colour combinations, opting for prints or jewellery to be the standout aspects of an outfit rather than eye-popping shades, so I was glad to have the chance to bring back some major contrasting. Pleats and midi-lengths are very feminine (and here to stay for the next season, judging from this past fashion-month), and I opted to bring a bit of understated sexiness with the sheer fabrics peaking through the sunlight and studs.
It’s always nice meeting people in Vancouver with similar interests, and i’m so happy to have met such an incredibly kind and talented couple.

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.

Pops of colour amidst dusty tones were the thoughts behind these outfits for Vancouver Fashion Week. As we were lucky the rain held out – which I can’t exactly say for the rest of the week – I decided to make the most of it and go for a more summery feel for the look: a midi-skirt with flowy pleats and subtle leopard print, cobalt blue popping out against a light olive cropped jacket and not-so rain appropriate suede booties. Ryan opted for a lightweight three-piece – perfect for a warmer summer day – paired with a classic chambray (a wardrobe staple) to bring a bit of a laid-back coolness. Photos: via Streetscout.me
