I just want to say I am really excited about an event I am hosting next week at the Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver. I realized that Vancouver had a lack of “intellectual” fashion gatherings after my event with Imran Amed from Business of Fashion, so I’ve decided to host a few. The first one is going to be very local, and I’ve invited representatives from some of the Vancouver’s most successful fashion businesses.
The theme of the evening will be Vancouver’s Fashion Industry: an incubator, a growth sector, or simply somewhere to set up shop? We will be holding a panel discussion, which I will be moderating, and the guests will include Stephen Bailey, Marketing Director at John Fluevog, Antonia Iamartino, Lead Yoga Designer at Lululemon, Dace Moore, Founder and Creative Director at D A C E, and Ryan Wilms, Creative Director at Inventory magazine.
I look forward to telling you all about the event after it has happened!
