Dress Design Collab: Styling the Vancouver Vogue Dress

I've been waiting to share this post with all of you for some time now: I've had this gorgeous dress hanging on my dressform at home, patiently turning out post after post, getting all the more anxious about the final styling of the Vancouver Vogue Dress. It's an amazing feeling to see the dress go from a sketch to a beautiful piece I can wear in such a short time. It's even more amazing to think not a single other person in the world has this dress!

To keep in line with the classic yet trendy style here at Vancouver Vogue, I styled the dress with modern and vintage accessories- all in classic black to counter the trendy tangerine hue. The bun gives the look an Audrey Hepburn feel (as you've seen here) while the dramatic volume keeps it current. I couldn't decide on celeb-inspired oversized shades or my vintage Ray Ban look-a-likes, so I used them both! Keep your eyes peeled for the video I'll be posting soon and you'll see another way to style the dress!

I am so thrilled with what Rebecca Elizabeth did with our ideas and how she put it all together: this is one talented girl we have here! If you love this dress as much as I do, I'm sure you're going to be asking how you can get your own made. Well fashionistas, you're going to have to wait a little while! This budding designer has a lot on her plate this coming school year, finishing her design program at the University of the Fraser Valley. If you want to keep in touch though, and see what she's up to, follow her on twitter. This is definitely one talent to watch!

Thanks again to Rebecca Elizabeth for making what will be now known as the official dress of Vancouver Vogue! Stay tuned later this week for a designer exclusive of Rebecca Elizabeth during our styling sesh!

Happy Styling! xo
