New refined fashion projects for spring 2008 – BCFW

Feb '07
BC Fashion Week announced the dates for their next season to be held the week of September 24th, 2007. “The level of economic activity in Vancouver and BC is wonderful to see. However, it has lead to a shortage of the kind of venue that we need to deliver fashion week,” stated Debra Walker, Executive Director BC Fashion Week.

“We have had increasing levels of success throughout our four seasons and our venue needs are very specific. Through consultation with our partners we have made the decision to not deliver physical shows this spring and focus on refining our new projects for spring 2008”.

The coming months will bring the opportunity to expand on new partnerships with organizations such as Portobello West, launching a New Labels show in collaboration with Fashion High and formalizing reciprocal relationships with other fashion weeks around the world such as Greece, Russia and Colombia.

As well as crystallizing these new alliances, BC Fashion Week organizers are looking forward to continuing to work with existing partners such as Industry Canada and Vancouver Economic Development Commission.

“We have many exciting innovations to launch during the next fashion week,” continued Walker. “Building on our successes has been most enervating and we are thoroughly excited about the upcoming season. Each of these projects individually is very encouraging. Combining them together goes to illustrate the strength that is emerging with theWestern Canadian fashion industry.”
