Working 2 jobs and going to school full-time can pretty much consume my life, but I try to make it to as many local events as I can because I love seeing what our city has to offer our fashion scene.
The John Casablancas grad show is no exception and I always look forward to their themed grad shows. This year, it was titled ‘Champagne’ and I was so ready to dress up like a glass of bubbly. There was no time to preplan, so this look came out of the 10 minutes I had after work to throw everything white and gold I owned on my bed and conjure something up. Is speed styling a skill?

The lighting doesn’t do it justice, but the latest John Casablancas grad class fashion show was spectacular. The students set out a theme for themselves as usual, this time it was Champagne, and their ability to keep their styled/designed collections cohesive is always impressive to see in students hoping to take themselves further post-graduation.
Aside from the fashion show, an awards ceremony was held to honor the top students in their class, an auction raised money for the Covenant House and a photobooth stood at the back with a dress-up box for the families and supporters who attended.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of attending a local grad show that turns around and gives its proceeds to a local cause, put the next JCI grad show in your calendar. You won’t want to miss what our citys fashion students will think of next.
Another day, another rain cloud to dodge here in Vancouver.
Wearing this all-black (rare) look to join Mine and Yours Co. for their grand reopening last month. They held a private media party the day before the actual party so I had a chance to explore the 3 stories of curated consignment with a curated group and the experience was actually really interesting. It was like shopping a girlfriends 3 story closet that you don’t want to leave because there’s always something new to discover. And there’s a shoe wall. A whole wall dedicated to shooooes.
ps, experimenting with uncharted territory: gaucho pants. Thoughts?
