Vancouver Fashion Week Day 3 – Shilmel Zagvar Fashion Center Gallery

Nov, 4th, 2011

I was impressed with this collection.  The tailoring and craftsmanship looked impeccable.  Furthermore, the show contained three distinct elements.  The collection started with Ready-to-Wear outfits (for Saturday evening), followed by Sophisticated outfits (for an imagined rich & famous crowd) and ended with Special Occasion outfits (for opening galas).  Hopefully they will attend the Fall/Winter VFW show in March.  I would like to see more of their work.

Toronto Fashion Week Day 5 – David Dixon Gallery

Oct, 21st, 2011

After attending David Dixon’s show I understand why organizers waited till 8:30pm on the last day of TFW to show his collection. It was definitely worth the wait! Everything was tailored, modern and elegant. It takes a very talented designer to work with three colors because the cut and shape must differentiate each piece. While it would have been nice to see a wider range of colors I was still very pleased with the show.   I hope he’ll have a Fall/Winter collection for TFW in March 2012. I would like to see more of his work!
