This past weekend, Helen Siwak of Kitsilano Kitty’s Closet hosted Sugar vs. Spice – A Styling Showdown & Luxury Shopping Party at the unambiguous Waterfall Building in Vancouver. I found the building not by address, but by the rows of rain that fell down inviting me to the tucked away event, like curtains to a stage. I knew I was in for a treat! From afar, I could see the hustle and bustle through the opulent glass walls; white chairs, make up artists, and designers who picked colourful spring clothing off the racks while others ate and mingled. I checked that my nude heels were clean, adjusted my faded ripped jeans, and clasped my transparent pink blouse with just a single button–afterall a fashion event is a fashion event even for a writer!

After checking in with the host, I was immediately shown around by a very friendly woman named Veronica from Devil May Wear (locally made clothing with an eco-friendly edge). Devil May Wear had donated a rather large gift basket to this event and anyone, including me, received a complimentary raffle ticket into the draw. As it goes in the fashion world, everybody knows everybody so I was pleased to make the rounds right away! I met Jihan a busy curve model for Wilhelmina Vancouver. She and I excitedly spoke about the ideology around a person’s size or weight. “Honor your curves” she likes to say. Just then, a woman who obviously knew Jihan bounced into our conversation with strikingly buzzed hair! click thru to article with lots of photo’s!
