Vancouver Fashion Week – Day Five
Teresa Rosati is an amazing gown designer from Poland, this season she took the VFW runway to premiere her Fall/Winter 2012 collection, and oh what a collection it was! One of my favourite pieces of the collection was Rosati’s opening piece. It was a satin flowing gown with pink ribbon detail and the best part of it: the fabric had Marilyn Monroe all over it … literally. The fabric was images of the late beauty tastefully spread from top to bottom. As this piece went down the runway, you could hear whisper’s through the crowd saying “that’s Marilyn Monroe” and I have a feeling that’s what the designer was striving for.
The next show that really caught my eye, which I anticipated, was Eva Chen. She is a local designer who showed her collection last season and had a fantastic turnout. For the people who saw the collection last season, this season was just another confirmation that Eva Chen is a very talented designer. Some of her pieces were detailed in black feathering, and she took the canvas of the dress and really brought it to life by adding such edgy features. One particular piece I really enjoyed was her very well-tailored blazer and pant. These pieces had metallic polka dot detailing making it seem three-dimensional (3D) in the light. Each show, many of us think she has outdone herself again, and wonder what she will pull out of her hat of design tricks next season.
Well DARPAN readers, as Day Five wraps up the Fall/Winter collections, I am sad to say Vancouver Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2012 has come to an end. I want to congratulate the VFW team for pulling this season off in a grandiose fashion – a special shout out to Naja Kader, Sandra Chung and Connor Galway, the best social media team out there!
