Vancouver, British Columbia (CNS) – Vancouver Fashion Week is embracing the green lifestyle. The fashion event will feature some of the city’s hottest up-and-coming designers showing off their eco-friendly designs.
One of the featured lines will be from Jenny Sandberg, an instructor from the Vancouver College of Art and Design (VCAD). Sandberg’s collection, Hawks Ave., is a rock ‘n’ roll inspired street line featuring jersey separates made from bamboo and organic cotton and organic denim jeans that are hand finished. All of the pieces are limited edition and made in house to lower its environmental impact.
“Fashion Week is a great opportunity for students to get a glimpse of how shows are produced and developed,” says Shannon Yang, fellow VCAD fashion instructor. “It also gives students an opportunity to explore the different designs and further understand why they want this career path.”
“Like similar events in London, New York and Paris, Vancouver Fashion Week is a great outlet for designers to show their creations and their appreciation for fashion,” says Yang. “It also provides opportunities for local designers and strengthens the local fashion industry as well.”
The Vancouver Fashion Week will be held from November 3 until November 8 and is expected to attract around 15,000 people, including designers, media and fashion buyers.
