Tonight’s fashion show is being held during high school graduation season. On my way to the venue, PAL Studio Theatre, traffic is snarled as busses, limousines and cars drop off students and parents. Everyone is dressed in suits and brightly colored gowns as they head to convention centers and fine dining restaurants in Coal Harbour.
The fashion show is taking place on the fourth floor of the theatre. A rooftop garden wraps around the lobby which leads into the studio.
Tonight’s show was organized by Vanstyle, a fashion community based out of Simon Fraser University (SFU). In addition to fashion show annual fashion shows, Vanstyle also organizes social events.
