Vancouver Women make an impression for local art exhibit

25 influential Vancouver women have come together in an anonymous art exhibit to show the world what a real Vancouver woman looks like – and no two are the same.


The women banded together as part of an art exhibit – aptly named the Art of a Woman – that was curated by local boutique retailer Diane’s Lingerie as they celebrate their re-branding and refurbishment.


To celebrate this milestone, the retailer invited media, bloggers, and clientele to participate in a unique and intimate painting session – where their bodies were painted, then imprinted on to a canvas for a one-of-a-kind impression.  The original works were then auctioned off with all proceeds going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

To see the creation of the exhibit, see the video below:

“At Diane’s Lingerie, we see women of varying shapes and sizes come through our doors, and we fit them all,” says owner Sharon Hayles. “As part of our rebrand, we wanted to honour those real women that come into our store every day. The artwork will live on in our new branding and be featured on everything from bags to hangtags. So, when you carry an item out of the store you know that a real woman is featured on that bag.”

Kudos, Diane’s Lingerie for celebrating the real female form.
