Vancouver designer launches men's sock line

DH Vancouver Staff Feb 12, 2014 8:26 am

Local designer, Vanessa McDermott-Franz, has launched her first ever men’s sock line McDermott-Franz Collective.  

The sock line was inspired from a trip to Paris in January of 2013 and the personal love of socks that made her want to start her own line. After doing research on the men’s fashion industry, she began designing socks with vibrant colours and patterns. With a lot of thought, she narrowed her collection to just 10 different sock designs. They range from a “Technicolour” sock with a chevron pattern of multiple colours to the “Sockbroker” that boasts different stock exchanges.

With only a limited selection of socks in each design, Vanessa had to pick and narrow down to her favourites.
