New Fashion Festival supports local emerging fashion designers

Young creatives looking to break out in Vancouver’s fashion industry have many obstacles to overcome when it comes to translating their ideas into physical products; most of which boil down to a lack of resources.

From commissioning the production of samples to producing photo shoots and fashion shows; developing a brand from the ground up takes dedication, time, and money. Paperroute, a Vancouver based marketing and creative agency that specializes in building emerging fashion brands, aims to change all that.

This weekend marks the first ever New Fashion Festival; a decentralized fashion weekend produced by Paperroute that aims to showcase and foster the development of emerging local fashion brands and young creatives in Vancouver. Boasting a dynamic assortment of programming, the weekend long event will include an incubator workshop day, a fashion film contest, two days full of shows and presentations, a special edition of HI FASHION (Paperroute’s popular free expression fashion party), a market day for emerging designers, a wearable tech showcase, and an official closing party.
