For 16 seasons, VFW has injected the West Coast with a dose of glamour, inspiration and international flair. Organizers invite you to join in the excitement from March 24th to 29th for Vancouver Fashion Week-Spring 2009. The week will showcase Fall/Winter collections, from snowboard to sustainable.
This season, VFW moves to Storyeum in Vancouver’s trendy and touristy Gastown neighbourhood. Located at 142 Water Street, Storyeum is an expansive venue with plenty of space for runways, exhibitions and industry lectures. It also brings visitors into the heart of the city where runway fashions step boldy onto the streets of Vancouver.
While Storyeum is the main venue, VFW will kick off in Whistler, BC at Garfinkels. in their 10th year, Garfinkels is Whistler’s largest nightclub and live concert venue, lending well to a runway show featuring trends in snowboard and skiwear for fall/winter 2009.
Be sure to check back at Vancity Buzz as well will be featuring local models, designers and photographers throughout the month of March. We’ll also send out our photographer to catch the models doing their thing.
We promise great coverage of the events. We’ll post the schedule as soon as it becomes available.
