On a rainy Vancouver afternoon, what better way is there to brighten up the grey skies than with a pop of floral? Layering was also key, as the temperatures dropped dramatically: Ryan keeping warm by adding in a denim jacket, me in light layered jackets over my crisp collared shirt. Luckily by the time we arrived, the rain had settled down and we managed to snap a few photos before heading inside for the shows.

It was lovely meeting up with Andrea (check out her fabulous blog here) and it was great having Claire bring that french chic along with her. There’s a glimpse of my dapper-suited brother as well, who makes the odd appearance here and there but is usually seen behind the camera snapping those great details and outfits.

The day’s shows brought a bit of Indian culture to the runway – something I always get excited to see. Sunny’s Bridal presented exquisitely embroidered Indian outfits, for both men and women, and a surprise model – Chef Vikram Vij – strutting down the catwalk for the finale, which was a crowd pleaser for sure!

Vancity-Buzz-X-StreetScout.Me-X-Vancouver-Fashion-Week-2015-90 VFW-day2 StreetScout.Me X Vancouver Fashion Week 15 Day 3-20-2  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
