VFW & Other Belated News

Hello everyone! After not updating for more than a week, I feel like I’ve got to post some exciting stuff to make it up to my readers. I’ve just started a new job, and after working all day I pretty much come home and pass out, haha. Not a lot of time to devote to fashion, sadly. Tomorrow I’m (finally) attending the last day of Vancouver Fashion Week! The final show is going to be an International Design Competition of sorts, with entrants from Germany, Norway, USA, Canada, and so on… or so I’ve heard. I promise to post a million pictures and babble on and on about anything beautiful that I see! Also showing tomorrow is menswear’s Drew William, who worked with Danish designer Henrik Vibskov before debuting his own collection for F/W 2009. Check out the Lookbook featured on his website.

I’ve also discovered a competition called America’s Most Stylish Blogger, in which 8 style-savvy girls are sent one new item per week to create a cool outfit around. It’s being presented by StyleList.com and Bluefly.com. My personal favourites are Trang Huyen of Behind The Seams, Nikki Moose of Dirty Flaws and Tiffany Tse of Style Sophisticate. This week’s round involves a killer pair of grey Prada booties, which you can see below, as photographed by Trang Huyen. So jealous.

On a different note, I found another blog with the name “The Daily Doll”, which seems to have been created earlier this month. Feeling a little bummed because I thought I had found something unique and personal, which someone else has now claimed as their own. Oh well, it is just the internet after all, and people are bound to come up with the same ideas now and then.

Oh, and by the way, the 2009 BMC Graduation Fashion Show is now scheduled for Tuesday, November 24th! I’ll see you there. (;

November Sneak Peek

Here’s just a little look at some of next month’s highlights. I’ll be attending some cool fashion events in the city, as well as putting the spotlight on fashion in Japan. I’m so excited!

Vancouver Fashion Week Coverage
Fashion month hasn’t really ended, because VFW (November 3-8) has yet to commence! Expect some commentary on both local designers, and those who travel here to participate.
Blanche MacDonald Fashion Show Coverage
I’ll be attending the annual Blanche MacDonald Centre graduation show, which showcases the up-and-coming designers that this school helps to produce. Hopefully I’ll get some good photos as well.
Special on NYLON Japan
While its American counterpart has gotten more boring over the years, the Japanese edition has set itself apart as an edgy, yet playful magazine. I’ll be showcasing some of the inspiring content.
Japanese Style Icons
I’ll be introducing you to some of the fashionistas that Japanese girls actually try to emulate, rather than yet another article on Yohji Yamamoto. From down-to-earth models to pop singers, they’ve all got a unique style.

…and more, of course.
