FNO - Flash Walk Teaser

Photographer  Alfred Lai
One of the goal's of Fashion Night Out Vancouver is to bring the work of local designers to a wider audience.  To give them an opportunity to realize what our designers have to offer. In preparation for FNO's media launch at the Shangri-La Hotel in June 2012, we decided to literally take it to the streets in a way sure to catch everyone's eye - a Flash Walk Teaser right on the streets of downtown Vancouver.

This top-secret event featured 5 gorgeous fashion models who were transported to several of Vancouver's most iconic spots in exotic, luxury cars including a white Lamborghini.  This definitely created a stir, but not as much as when they stepped out of the car.  Each of the 5 sported edgy hair and make-up and were demurely covered by a short trench coat.  When they reached their location, they un-wrapped to display bodies spray-painted to represent bright, colourful clothing.  A mini runway show followed and then it was back into those exotic cars and off to the next location. 

This media blitz was eye-candy for the crowds watching at each location and gave an immense media boost for the launch that was soon to follow.  Special thanks goes to the videographers from VCAD as well as the group of dedicated photographers who took the time to document this event.  We created a fashion frenzy from Waterfront Station to Robson Street to English Bay.

Lace Me Up

A little lace, a little pick-a-boo, a little skin. Lace can be sexy, funky, artistic or even risky. Best way to layer this fabric… don’t! Adding a bohemian flare to your style is very trendy for this summer. Think of your clothe as a costume. Do something different. Express yourself through your look.

Neon, Neon, Neon - Neon Green?!

Let me tell you… we are going to see a lot of neon this spring and summer. Lime Green in particular! This summer is about a healthy, sun-kissed glows mixed with colour. Don’t be scared to attract attention, don’t be scared to do “too much” colour, don’t be scared to mix and match. Sometimes we can get stuck being too serious, too monotone. This summer, be young again.

The King of The Queens - Holding a Statement

It’s so much better to go out and flaunt your stuff when it’s spring or summer. Well, it’s spring! When going out, one detail that is often overseen is the clutch. A small space that a woman could not live without when going out on the town. In memory of one of the most talented designers, today’s post is all about Alexander McQueen & his handbags. These designs are unique, bold, and most certainly make a statement!

Mixing Prints

More and more, people are getting bold & risky with their mixing of prints. Mixing designs and patterns into an outfit can really give an impression of a complex look or just a well put together style. Prints are intimidating. It takes confidence to put something on in front of your mirror, but it’s a different ball game when walking out into the buzzing city. Don’t be afraid to wear your leopard shoes with a purple blazer… it might turn out to be your best outfit yet!

Rainbows Everyday

Sometimes a pretty, little lady needs to be cheered up. Sometime a pretty lady needs a little extra colour in her day. This year the fade-out & the fade-in hair is hot. Whether you are adding electric or settle neutral colours to your hair, there is a style for everyone. Be bold. Be daring. Do something different.
