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.

Top it Off with Style!

The topping on your ice cream is the best part of the entire treat... same goes for your outfit! A simple accessory can really change your entire look. Rocking a hat or a head piece exudes confidence and even poise on some level. Since the face should be everyone’s focal point, a head piece can frame your most desirable traits. Don’t let anyone take your accessories away.

We are only days away from the highly anticipated 2012 Oscars! What will the celebrities be wearing. Who will they be wearing? What trends, patterns will we see this year?

Boots - For So Many Reasons

Boots - for so many reasons. For a cocktail party, for a girls night out, for a hot date, for sexy comfort, maybe even for a risky soiree. There is something very attractive about a woman wearing gorgeous boots. You can pair them with colourful tights, thigh high stockings or nothing at all. Don't be scared to make a bold statement with your shoes that's what they are there for!

I say "Rock It!"

Sometimes we have the thought that a blazer is simply too dressy. I say..."Rock It!"

One of the sexiest looks is a sophisticated woman with style under her jacket. From a traditional, tailored suit jacket, to a couture sparkle crop blazer - what you wear underneath is a surprise to "wow". For added texture, flip the sleeves up to a three length sleeve. Love it when a suit jacket has a funky, colourful lining on the inside that contributes to your overall look. Rock it – with confidence and charm!

I had to support them since every fabulous mademoiselle needs cute comfies! This is an item you would want to have at the cabin after a cool swim, perhaps after a day of skiing or simply to be casual on Sunday!

Not Just a Hand Bag

An outfit can’t be completely amazing without its accessories! Shoes, hats, gems & of course... "The Bag". A hand bag isn’t just a practical item but an indispensible one for the stylish lady. Purses are like art – a creative vision, handmade by the experts in the field. Strategically shaped, coloured and textured – every angle of a couture purse looks different and is totally stimulating!
