Just as spring fashions start arriving fast and furious, I am busy booking appointments for next week in Vancouver – to shop for fall and winter! How is it possible to live in the moment, when I am always shopping 6 months ahead of time?! J
Next week is the beginning of Vancouver Fashion Week, when designers from Canada, and around the world gather to showcase their creativity and originality. Vancouver Fashion Week is a 5-day event that is internationally recognized as a platform for both established and new designers.
It’s also when retailers from around Western Canada converge in Vancouver to meet with representatives for the various fashion designers and labels to buy their fall and winter inventory. I’m excited to meet with reps from some new Canadian fashion lines and visit with tried and true reps we’ve developed great friendships with over the past 5 years.
For Spring, we discovered some fabulous Canadian lines. Though these lines have been making waves on the Canadian fashion scene for years, they are new to our store and we are thrilled with our new spring line-up. Some of the new lines you will find at Silhouette Fashion Boutique this spring are: ARTEX, GOA, PICADILLY, LOIS, MYSTREE & TANGO MANGO. And naturally, we still carry your favourites: PARSELY & SAGE, MISS NIKKY, CRYSTAL, LIBRA, KOLLANTAI, DONNA, MODE DE VIE, PRETTY WOMAN, GRANDCO … oh, I know I am forgetting someone!
Wish me luck in Vancouver. I promise I will bring back some great Spring accessories, too!
