What a finale.

Vancouver’s Eco Fashion Week closed Friday night with a spectacle — Prophetik by Jeff Garner. With live bluegrass music, theatrical designs and an indoor snowstorm, Garner put the show back in fashion show.

His collection was inspired by the court of Louis XV with loads of floor-sweeping gowns.

Some of which seem like the kind of thing the Lady of Shallot would wear.

But I was most drawn to the menswear. I loved, loved, loved the jackets. Cropped, quilted, and recycled, one of them was even crafted from the designer’s childhood bedspread.

Now that’s a fitting way to put Eco Fashion Week to bed.
