Vancouver Fashion Week: Day 4

This is your VFW Runway Correspondent here again! By this point in the week, I started to feel like I was really getting the hang of this reporting thing. How often do you get to meet the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea and ask him about fashion?

Remember what I was saying about my obsession with studs in my last post? I wasn't kidding. There's another studded piece I thrifted a while ago: a mint moto jacket from Zara. I paired it with my mom's tiered leather skirt (that she also wore in her 20's)! I love mixing mint with black, and seeing as how leather is making a big comeback, I thought this skirt would be appropriate. Add a little pop of bright pink colour on my lips and I was set to go!

An amazing array of prints walked down the runway. I was particularily in awe over Tramp In Disguise's collection 'Lost City' and Xsenia & Olya. Sini's 'Lost City' collection was inspired by Atlantis, while Xsenia & Olya's prints were based on liquid smoke. Both beautifully unique, the prints are fresh, colourful, and I would wear them in a second!

Day 4 was Korea Day at fashion week, and we got a rare look into the fashion and culture of a Korean wedding ceremony. The outfits were extremely intricate and full of bright primary colours. A tea ceremony was offered as well to give everyone a look into Korean culture. (And this girl loves tea!)
