Ovey

I briefly met Ovey (far right) at Toronto Fashion Week. Since we both call Vancouver home it was inevitable that we would meet at VFW.

Sandra

We met for a brief second in between shows. We exchanged cards and I smiled when I read the name of her blog. She said she wasn’t trying to make a statement but I loved the name Sandrogynous. It was creative and memorable.

Mystery Woman

From the opposite end of the runway my telephoto lens was able to “zoom in” on a warm smile. Unfortunately the show started moments after I took this photo. Maybe I’ll have a chance to introduce myself during VFW’s Fall/Winter show…

Rachel Sin

I lingered a bit after the Melissa Nepton show to see what people were wearing. Halfway down the runway I spotted a lady wearing a stunning white dress. When I caught up with her I asked who designed her dress. She proudly replied, “I did.” Here’s a link to her Rachel Sin collection.

Lauren Bagliore

I find a woman’s bare back incredibly sexy! Second, I couldn’t see what held her dress in place. As I walked over to say hi, I saw a short sleeve draped over her left shoulder. I introduced myself and asked who designed her dress. She proudly replied, “I did.” She was showing her collection later that evening but sadly I hadn’t purchased a ticket for her show. Here’s a link to her Lauren Bagliore collection.

Ovey

It’s ironic when you travel for 5-hours then meet someone from your hometown. Ovey is a publicist and she’s wearing one of her client’s designs. We both laughed when we imagined we would see each other at Vancouver Fashion Week in November. Here’s a link to the Adrian Wu collection.

Sharon

Not only was Sharon wearing a leather jacket with incredibly detailed design work, she was also carrying a Nikon camera. We chatted for a bit and she told me both her and her sister manage a blog called Backstreet Stylers.

Lauren

I couldn’t help smile when I saw Lauren’s boom box purse. It was definitely a conversation starter. I thought the speakers were decorations but she said they actually play music! We also chatted about her blog Lauren Out Loud. I smiled a second time when I visited her site later that evening. Her home page stated she wanted to be the President of the Internet!
