Day three of Vancouver Fashion Week presented strong with an array of designers inspired by vintage collections all over the world. The designers hailed from England, India, China, and, of course, Vancouver, Canada to present their Fall/Winter 2014 collection to the press, editors, and celebrities alike. 
 
First off, the UK designers embodied vintage London style of the 60s and 70s. Fever featured looks more of the mod era with geometric prints and loud colors that were inspired by their global travels while AngelEye took inspiration from the 70s with leathers, lace, and sheer fabrics. Goldie focused more on vintage feminine shapes with a strong influence of modern rock and roll.
 
From the eastern side of the globe, designers from India and China presented collections inspired by regal clothing from the 17th and 18th century fused with expert modern craftsmanship. Designers from India, Parvesh Jai, focused on embellishments and majestic color combinations with embroidery and black, gold, and champagne hues uniquely highlighting jumpsuits, long, full dresses, and boleros. 
 
Shravan Kumar, also from India, focused on a similar concept but stayed with traditional cuts of mens and womenswear with a touch of an English influence with embroidered crests, lapels on blazers in velvet, and modern saris. From China, designer, Ophelia Song, focused on traditional shapes and her use of textiles displaying prints influenced by her own abstract paintings of florals and tropical colors.
 
Back at home base in Vancouver, designers focused on eastern influences, power dressing and clothes for the price-concerned consumer. Romiélle, a mother-daughter design duo, fused their talents together of design and tailoring and created a collection made for the modern sophisticated working woman. Leather, tweed, satin, and fur were utilized in everything from wedding dresses to neckties to oversized coats. 
 
Papillon presented ready-to-wear designs for the price-conscious consumer highlighting knit sheaths, a-line skirts, and influences of art deco. On the contrary. Well Groomed presented a line of couture with an intriguing storyline. Throughout the show, the line evolved to tell the story, titled “Once Upon A Bride”, of a young woman blossoming into a beautiful swan-like creature, illustrated by using metallics and Swarovski crystal embellishments. 
 
Finally, one of the most captivating designers was Gardé del Avante, a jewelry designer who premiered his enchanting chains and feather jewelry canvassed on models in a simple black bathing suit. Among the bold pieces were chained sleeves that looked like body armour, exotic feathers, and chain combinations resembling fish scales.
