Sidewalk Style – Week 28 With Natalie

Jul, 12th, 2014

Natalie said I could post her photos provided I didn’t show her face (for privacy reasons).
Natalie and I had a wide ranging conversation about fashion. She told me she wears heels to the beach. She has a sister that’s a designer and she doesn’t have a style icon. While her outfit (today) consists of typical Vancouver brand names she honestly prefers to shop at small boutiques and favors unique pieces. More importantly she’s a big supporter of Vegan and Eco Friendly clothing. If you feel the same way here’s the results of our conversation. Natalie shared the first two and I provided the last three:

  1. Inhabitat – Stella McCartney’s Vegan line of accessories
  2. Vaute Couture – Apparel and fabrics made from vegan and recycled fibers
  3. Matt & Nat – Fashionable purses made from…
  4. Eco Fashion Week – A 3-day fashion show held in April & October
  5. La Biosthetique – Cosmetics & hair products that avoid animal testing and use Eco friendly production methods.

La Biostheique products can be found at most upscale Vancouver hair salons.

Skirt Forever 21

Sidewalk & Runway Style – Week 25 With Hailey

Jun, 21st, 2014

Hailey on the Sidewalk

Two weeks after photographing Hailey in the Romielle Fashion Show @ the Italian Day Festival, we randomly met on the “sidewalk”. She had just finished modeling for swimwear show. The runway was on a downtown Vancouver rooftop. With surrounding high rises she said it felt like 40 (C) or 104 (F)! Needless to say she wanted to slip into something light and comfortable for the walk home. Like myself, Hailey has a full-time office job and follows her passion on evenings & weekends.

Sidewalk Shoot – With Emily

May, 17th, 2014

Six Things I like about Emily!

When I first saw Emily, the word classy popped into mind. Her overall appearance reminded me of a Coco Chanel quote. The legendary fashion designer once said, “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” Aside from a nice smile and a warm personality here’s what I liked.

  1. Hid the typical bra silhouette by wearing a white one piece sports bra,
  2. Paired a short crop top blouse with a knee length pencil skirt,
  3. Wore two colors that emphasized her hair as a third color (i.e. a Pop of Color),
  4. Carried a uniquely designed purse,
  5. Wore a gold bracelet that match the gold buckles in her heels and
  6. Wore sexy yet comfortable heels.

Each element was subtle and understated but the combined effect was “Wow”! As we chatted I learned Emily recently graduated from a fashion design program and currently works as an Intern for a local designer.
Several of these images were featured in the Community section of the Asian Pacific Post newspaper.
