Vogue's Fashion's Night Out Vancouver

As promised, here are some of my photos from Vancouver's FNO runway show. I took just over 1300 photos from the evening, but for blogging purposes I've edited it down to about 30 of my favourite looks/shots. The show was MC'ed by Meena Mann & Natalie Langston (pictured just below) of FMA Entertainment Weekly, the latter of which wore a beautiful maxi dress by BCBG Max Azria. The runway show itself featured a combination of local designers and Vancouver retailers. These included Jason Matlo, French Connection, Wear Else, Daryl White (incredibly unique menswear, you can't miss it!), Marilyn's of West Vancouver,  Evan Ducharme (young designer who won FNOV design competition the previous month), & Roze Merie Cuevas (who showed two collections; Jacqueline Conoir & Jac).

A teal and mustard masterpiece by Evan Ducharme. I'd wear this in a heartbeat!
Love the deep scoop-back

All in all, it was a great evening & I was definitely impressed by the majority of runway collaborations. The post-runway retailer events left much to be desired, but hopefully by Vancouver's second annual FNO, Robson & Alberni Street will step it up a notch.

Better late than never?

The title of this post seems to be the tag line of my life. So many things have happened since my last post nearly four months ago; and although I feel a tad guilty about letting my blog fall by the wayside, I know putting all my energy into my travels & building my life here in London was worth every moment.

That being said, now seems like the perfect time to jump back into things; to attempt to unload the virtual mountain of photos & posts I've accumulated over the past few months. I'll start out with a short one - my look for Vogue's Fashion's Night Out in Vancouver in September. Definitely seems out of season as I write this on a snowy January evening on a completely different continent, but I still adore this look. The jewel-tone colour combination is probably my favourite of 2012, and the gorgeous
