I was more excited than ever for the shows this season after seeing the Vancouver Fashion Week Opening Gala's sneak peek, and Day 1 did not disappoint! The designs of Green Embassy, Nina Tan, Pitour, Shelley Klassen, and Gabriel Lage were highlights of the night, but all were incredibly diverse and and a feast for the eyes. Gabriel Lage's collection of awe-inspiring beaded gowns was a truly beautiful way to end the evening, leaving us all to dream of wearing something so breathtakingly elegant one day. I'd say Gatsby-esque beading is still all the rage for the coming season (yes!).
I also went backstage with London Drugs Cosmetics before the shows to get the scoop on the latest hair and beauty trends, straight from Beauty Director Yasmin Morshedian. Heads up, smokey eyes and red vampire lips are big trends to watch for, as well as graphic liner (which is my go-to on a daily basis). Check out our Day 1 of Vancouver Fashion Week which includes a backstage make-up how-to on the models of Nina Tan Design:
