On another note, I am really excited to share with you all that I had been invited for the Vancouver Fashion Week Spring Summer 2013, which is going to be held at Vancouver, Canada from September 18-23, 2012 !

But alas, I wish I could visit Canada at such a short notice.
So, to bring the hot and amazing fashion stories from the Fashion Week to all of you; I have collaborated with them to get all the latest updates and much more from VFW with you in the coming days.

Before that, here are a few things you must know about VFW- 

Vancouver Fashion Week (VFW) was founded in 2001 by producer and entrepreneur, Jamal Abdourahman,who envisioned bringing a prominent fashion event to Canada’s renowned coastal city. VFW’s vision is the celebration of pioneering international and local designers as diversity and multiculturalism are its core values. This semi-annual even has been host to a range of collections from street-wear to eco-friendly garments. Due to its continual growth, VFW has gained the attention of Le Monde, The Guardian, Elle Canada, Flare and Sina and Hollywood stars such as Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, as well as Canadian music giants Sam Roberts and Alanis Morrisette. In April 2011, VFW was proclaimed Vancouver’s official fashion week by Mayor Gregor Robertson.

With the stunning backdrop of coastal Vancouver, Vancouver Fashion Week will launch Spring/Summer 2013, showcasing leading designers from around the world in the spotlight of local and international media outlets.

Some of the major designers featuring at the Fashion Week are :

  • Tara Starr (Canada)
