Vancouver Fashion Week November 5 - 9, 2008: S/S 2009 Schedule, Shows, Locations & After Parties

Dec 19 2017, 11:42 am

This week marks the 15th season of Vancouver Fashion Week(VFW), as this week the bi-annual event will be displaying the Spring/Summer collections of 2009. It should be noted that Vancouver has come a long way in terms of fashion and a younger and smaller scale international city it is events like this that puts local designers and models on the map.

Here is a snippet from the official press release:

Vancouver Fashion Week has been an attraction for Canadian and international designers from around the world, delivering a diverse and multicultural fashion experience since 2000. Widely recognized as a global platform for designers, Vancouver Fashion Week has become the West Coast’s most prestigious industry event, bringing together 15,000 Canadian and international designers, influential buyers, local and international media, and fresh, young Fashionista’s. Now celebrating its eighth year, Vancouver Fashion Week has established itself as a widely recognized event which provides a forum to nurture and celebrate the fashion industry in Vancouver.

In recent years, Vancouver Fashion Week has featured internationally acclaimed designers such as Versace and Anna Sui in addition to emerging designers, such as Patricia Fieldwalker, David Dickson and Sanjana Jon.

Throughout the week I’ll be interviewing models, profiling local designers and writing up reviews delivered via my intern, who shall be known as Jr. Dweller. Take good care of him ladies.

Check back later on this morning for the complete schedule of shows and after parties.
