With Paris Fashion Week all wrapped up, the runways in other parts of the world are just starting to kick off. So swap your six-inch heels for fancy flats and grab a Trenta from Starbucks stat — the runway fun continues in Canada.
Vancouver Fashion Week, which runs from March 16 to March 22, sees more than 25,000 show-goers packing the Queen Elizabeth Plaza each season. And while the shows take place in Western Canada, the 50 featured designers are as global as they come, hailing from the U.K., Europe, South America, Asia and more.
Some of the designers to watch include Peruvian Noe Bernacelli (whose pieces have already hit the pages of Vogue, #NBD), South Korean streetwear luxury designer Hong Kiyoung and Oregon-raised Kate Miles, who at 15 years old is already attracting the attention of fashion editors and giving other designers a run for their money.
