Easily one of the most anticipated designers of the week was Michelle Lesniak, winner of Project Runway Season 11. You know me, I'm a sucker for retro style, so obviously I was a big fan of the vintage swimsuits that graced the runway. The nautical rope detailing was a great touch, and made me wonder why I've never seen anything like it before! Oh man, this really gets me excited about nautical style for summer... Plus, you'll see the bikini pictured below features Michelle's 'falling upwards' hot air balloon print- too cute!
Gala Limon's Mexican Fairies collection was packed full of sweet, flowy, ready-to-wear dresses, tops and skirts that made me wish I could blink and find them in my closet! My favourite is the pastel purple/pink dress you'll see below. The laser cut details were a unique touch, and the dress swayed beautifully as the model walked the runway. Such an easy, breezy, chic design!
My favourite show of the night, Laurence Pirnay, had a wide range of styles hit the runway, including a fun fringe, 3-D dress, chic cape, and a mix of flowing prints. As I've been completely enamoured by capes lately, the second I spotted the full length cape dress you'll see below, my eyes opened wide. What a beauty! So elegant and refined, that style is right up my alley. Even better was the ever-so-subtle diamond pattern along the cape and dress hemline: lovely detailing!
Thanks to Kuna Photography for the runway photos!
I had a lot of fun with my Day 6 outfit for Vancouver Fashion Week! I've been patiently waiting to wear this massive piece of statement jewellery that I picked up back in December...and finally the day has come. It's a pretty busy necklace, so I figured the rest of the outfit should be all-black, to make it really stand out. But of course, you know me, I can never go with no colour: hence the red lips!
