Diary | Vancouver Fashion Showcase Wrap-Up

By Erika Renfrew

What’d you do on Sunday?  Sip pretty cocktails?  Sample mini cakes?  Or did you perform acrobatics while hanging from the ceiling?  I could never do that last one, but two out of three isn’t bad.

This weekend wrapped up the Vancouver Fashion Showcase, an event spotlighting 30 of the city’s top boutiques and retailers.  This four-day extravaganza began with a gala and runway show at the Vancouver Art Gallery. What comes after the pre-party?  More parties of course. Vancouver Fashion Showcase hosted three days of shopping with styling competitions, industry talks and exclusive discounts.

Sadly, no shopping for me!  I did attend the official wrap-up party at Canvas Lounge.  With giveaways and great music it was a night to mingle with the inspiring individuals involved, like Amy Podrasky (far left) and Marina Fernandes (centre) who volunteered to help plan the fashion shows and dress the models.

Now for the acrobatics.  I watched a strong, elastic-y woman perform an aerial dance.  She was all-smiles as she twirled mid-air; I was holding my breath that she didn’t fall.

Take part in any of the fun this weekend?  If you missed it this time around, consider this an ever-so-gentle nudge.

    I attended the opening gala but not the wrap party…the showcase had so many events, wish I could have gone to them all. Great shot of you ladies though, beautiful!

    I attended the opening gala but that was all I could make it to (working on the weekends has some serious drawbacks haha).

    If the wrap up party was anything like the opening gala I’m sure it was a huge success

    I wish I could have made it to more of the weekend events, but school always gets in the way of precious shopping time! Glad to hear you ladies enjoyed the opening gala, I know everybody involved worked incredibly hard.

    I’ll definitely be there next time!
