VFW concludes with four global designers

Vancouver Fashion Week came to a close with four very different designers from around the globe: one from Canada whose menswear line was inspired by the topography of her country, one from Korea whose line showcased her love of glam rock and nordic fashion, and two designers from Peru whose lines embodied their love of Paris and the female form.
 
To start with the show for The Unified Theory, a menswear line designed by Canadian Sara Bailey. She was raised in the Rocky and Appalachian mountains so she infused her love of her surroundings as well as nomadic hunter-gatherer instincts into her line. The collection consisted of natural and eco-fabrics such as raw silk, bamboo, and tencel with pieces such as long hooded jackets in reptilian prints.
 
Originally from South Korea, designer Soojin Lee showcased a day-to-play line with a glam rock twist. She layered textures of silk, sheer, and fur inevitably inspired by Nordic design. In the past, she has been trained by Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan, which can be seen in her current style and technique.
 
Finally, two Peruvian designers brought Vancouver Fashion Week to a close with two collections made to honor the female form and female fashion throughout history. Noe Bernacelli took upon his training in nude art to create embellished shimmering gowns that hugged the models at every curve. 
 
Some dresses had sheer backs, some were mini, and some even had simple lace embellishments layered over a romantic color palette. Evolèt, by Jercy Gutierrez, presented dresses with gorgeous drapery with a defined waist, victorian-style blouses and haram pants, as well as knit sweaters and leggings. All in all, his collection embodied the idea that women should be adorned in fabric but also tailored in the right spots so her figure is never enveloped by the clothes.
 
“It’s been a vibrant and inspiring week, which ended on an appropriately high note. We saw a relax menswear collection from an up-and-coming Canadian label, trendsetting cool from a Korean in London, and then ended the day with two Peruvian designers who each expressed their own aesthetic and love for the female form.”
