I had the most incredible time at fashion week with Revlon Professional, the official sponsor of Vancouver Fashion Week for the last three seasons. It’s seriously such an honor working with the international beauty brand that I have been such a fan of for years as their Runway Insider. Partnering with them was not even a question. I genuinely LOVE the product and I love that their whole concept is taking this seasons trendsetting hairstyles from the runway to reality.
I loved working with the amazingly talented stylists and working closely with the Revlon Professional team. It’s always exciting to see our local designers in the press room as well as meet and interview the international designers who are flourishing on a global scale. Vancouver is the perfect platform for designers to premiere their collections to an audience that is receptive and open to viewing pieces that push the envelope while having a lot of fun.
Before getting into broadcasting I was a professional dancer performing and competing on stages across North America. Behind the scenes brought me back to that feeling of excitement before a show with a rush of energy filling my body. It was so special to experience behind the scenes of the fashion shows, the importance of hair to a collection and learning about all of the inspirations behind the amazing collections. I’ve put together highlights from my interviews, my favourite hair tutorials that will show you how to take the runway hair styles and create them on yourself at home as well as some memorable photos from the week and some of my favourite pieces and hairstyles from the runway. I hope you enjoy!
Canadian-Mexican designer Oscar Mendoza is one to watch. His FW16 collection was a dose of fantasy, blended with sensuality and orginality. Lace, intricate detailing that accentuated the female form showed a glamorous yet adventurous side. I’m keeping my eye on Mendoza!
One of Saturday’s highlights at Vancouver Fashion Week was Peruvian designer Noe Bernacelli’s FW16 collection. A local media outlet shot a commercial during the beginning of Bernacelli’s show garnering much attention and press. The emcee got the crowd on their feet while his first look hit the runway!
