CHARLY THORN || VFW

With summer coming to an end, i’m craving Spring ’18 already! Peep below for a  few images from one of my favorite designers that stood out to me at VFW . Charly Thorn is just an 18 year old Australian designer and her pieces are beautiful.  The teal coloured fabric is 100% Australian Merino Wool, the transparent fabric is 100% silk, and the print is 100% linen. Can’t wait to show you all more pieces from the collection. In the meantime, check out Charly Thorn and swoon over some of her beautiful SS’18 collection. #womanwhosupporteachother

Vancouver Fashion Week

Vancouver Fashion Week has been a staple in Vancouver since 2001. Ever evolving – just like fashion – this year’s opening gala (and also the full 7 day show) was held at the Chinese Cultural Centre in Chinatown on September 18th, 2017. This venue lent a hand to the gritty feel of the show – very much Sex in the City circa 1999.

The crowd was plentiful and varied, just the way a fashion show should be. Redken was on hand offering hair touch ups to show goers before they could head to Republic nightclub for the afterparty.

Three designers walked in opening night – Charly Thorn, Aiki District, and Nozomi Kuwahara.

My personal favorite was Charly Thorn. She is an 18 year old Australian designer who made me crave Spring ’18 already! At such a young age she is sure to continue to grow and produce amazing fashion in the years to come. One piece in particular stood out to me. This structured beach suit. Not only the shape but the pattern had me begging to see more. The entire aesthetic of her show had me feeling I could move to an island and live there forever.

Aiki District had a much more laid back and simplistic feel. The neutral colors and unstructured cuts worked so well with the fabrics chosen. Any piece could work alone but also be given your own spin with the right accessories and styling. 

See below for my own outfit and makeup details. Also visit www.vanfashionweek.com for tickets. Shows run until Sunday September 24th!

Until March 2018 VFW! I will be back to view all that Fall has to offer.

No-makeup makeup

Want to achieve that no makeup, makeup look? Check out the following photo and product breakdown to achieve the look.

Prep your skin with your daily skin routine and make sure you have beautiful hydrated skin. Use a Beauty oil of your liking and apply a few drops to the palm of your hands and press it in to the skin until it is fully absorbed. Use the Anastasia cream stick foundation and apply three swatches over your face– both checks and your forehead. Take your favourite blending brush and blend until you have a beautiful sheer coverage. Once complete, use a powder puff or a dry beauty blender and pat it on the skin. This gets rid of excess oil and foundation. Apply a bit of highlighter and bronzer if you would like. I just applied the Aurora Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Use the same bronzer and highlight over your eye lids for a harmonious look. Lips and brows are up to you– you can pick a bold lip and brow or go natural like I have above.  💋
