Vancouver Fashion Week kicked off on September 18th, 2017 Spring/Summer 2018 Season with a snippet preview of the sixteen designers showcasing this week, with each bringing in one key look. From vibrant colourful polka dot patterns to all black textured layers, the cross section was anything but standard. These outfits were a great tease of what’s to come. The featured designers who showed full lines were Charly Thorn, Aiki District, and Nozomi Kuwahara.

The colours of the sea and the use of transparencies are clear inspirations behind Charly Thorn’s Spring Summer 2018 collection. Tropical prints of green palms are highlighted on the white canvas, accented with polished metallic espadrille shoes. This feels like a resort collection perfect for your next holiday.

Aiki District plays with neutral colours and sheer fabrics, mixed with baby blues and highlights of vibrant red. There was a juxtaposition of structured pieces featuring exterior pockets and visible tailoring, mixed with softer more fluid silhouettes and laser cut attributes.

Playful and fluorescent colour are words best describes Nozomi Kuwahara’s latest collection. With a mix of geometric patterns and voluminous sleeves, her look is street style ready, with ‘Harajuku’ models rocking pigtails. Mini jersey t-shirts are stitched together in a motif which was developed throughout.
