BC Fashion Week: Nicole Bridger

Last Thursday and Friday I attended my first fashion shows at BC Fashion Week. In particular, I went to see the GenNext show, Nicole Bridger and Lara Presber.

My favourite of the week was by far Nicole's collection. It was soft, pretty and very wearable. As Vancouver shows often go, nothing is very standout or avante-garde. No matter, what makes these shows special is the fact that they're making use of sustainable and organically grown materials such as bamboo and cotton. The loose silhouette is still very now and I can see these pieces worn with just about anything. They're very versatile, like the A.P.C. of the west coast. The leather belts are a nice touch (they sort of remind me of BCBG), and apparently Nicole was slaving away at them just the night before. I really appreciate her knack for keeping things simple and fresh. All of the models looked beautiful with flushed cheeks and soft hair. It's making me want to try out tawny peach blush for the first time in my life. Oh, in case you were wondering, the shoes are Fluevogs.

I love the yellow lace-up shoes, the grey skirt which seems to fold under itself, that last blue dress and the final melon dress. Just GORGEOUS! the way it just falls to the ground looks stunning

These pieces are too plain/granola for my liking, but it's interesting she used Fluevog shoes on her models.

I can agree with you about the Vancouver fashion scene - it'd be so nice to one day see an more imagination approach to fashion design here!

That being said, I do really love the collection you photographed -- I would easily wear almost every piece from it.

Lovely work. You should've pushed yourself to the front of the other photographers waiting at the end of the runway!
