Yes it's true, I've come out of my post-VFW hibernation! With my final exams of undergrad right after, and moving after that, I needed some serious downtime (well, if you can call full-time work downtime!). Seeing the University of the Fraser Valley put on their annual grad fashion show got me right back into the blogging zone, though, and I'm excited to share with you the talent I witnessed on the runway. Our very own Vancouver Vogue dress designer, Rebecca of Rebecca Elizabeth designs was even showing her collection! I had goosebumps seeing her collection on the runway; her portion of the show was set to Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Ray (from the Great Gatsby soundtrack), which was fitting, since her bridal collection featured vintage glamour of the 20's. You'll hear more about her collection in my interview with her in the coming weeks! Another one to watch is Kassandra of Kassinka Designs, whose collection featured stunning designs with a nod to her Russian heritage. I'm so glad she is bringing muffs back! What a perfect addition to a stunning and feminine collection of bright, primary colours and lace. You can expect an interview with her as well coming soon!
The show itself had many different featured program elements, including shows dedicated to bustiers, swimsuits, surface design, weaving, as well as the individual grad collections. I wish I could share them all with you, but I've narrowed it down to my favourites (and those without people's heads in the way!).
Myself, I opted for a very bright combination of colours for the event, because it's officially nice enough out to to wear them and not feel the least bit out of place! I am loving adding my yellow neon accessories to my outfits right now, and as you can see here, this look was no exception. Don't be afraid to add a strong dose of colour to your look!
