Happy Thursaday! This is year I was lucky enough to attend Vancouver Fashion Week that was held at the Chinese Agricultural Center in Vancouver. This event runs from March 18-24 showcasing local and international designers. VFW has positioned itself as a highly successful and widely recognized event with over 20,000 guests attending the six-day event.
One designer that stood out to me the most is Evan Clayton, his collection “JENOVA” ended the night with garments that expressed profound introspection. Inspired from Yoshitaka Amano, the artist behind “Final Fantasy VII”, he explores “human compassion…with the morality of good and totality of evil being questioned”. Edgy dominatrix-like pieces contrasted light feminine garments. Once again, Evan Clayton produces a fantastic line that makes you fall more in love with every glance.
Dark, edgy, and intense are a few adjectives that could fully describe his collection. Black will never fail a Fall & Winter collection, and Des showers every garment with the shade. Asymmetrical hems, hooded capes, and cone-shaped hoods were the most interesting garments that walked during his show—however nothing stood out as much as the models makeup, which was a large black cross right in your T-zone.
