The COUNTDOWN has BEGUN! 14 DAYS UNTIL VFW S/S 2015
There are 14 days between now and the glamorous opening night gala, so we are choosing 14 rising stars from the confirmed designers showing at Vancouver Fashion Week (September 15-21) to spotlight.
This first entry is dedicated to the person we are most inspired and excited to see – Alex S. Yu! He is this seasons sponsored designer by Victoria, BC, based NICHE Magazine and inspired by his childhood bedtime stories.
Why the anticipation? Alex’s creations incorporate interesting patterns, fabric manipulation and chunky textures that are carried over from piece to another which shows a theme of recycling and reuse which is near and dear to our hearts!
“Alex S. Yu is a fashion designer raised in Vancouver, who studied fashion at Blanche Macdonald in Vancouver and the prestigious London College of Fashion in the UK. Alex graduated LCF in 2013 and is currently working on his SS2015 collection, which is sponsored by NICHE magazine, and will debut at Vancouver Fashion Week. The inspiration behind ALEX S. YU fashion label comes mainly from his experiences while traveling to more than 20 countries around the world. His S/S 2015 collection is inspired by his travels to London and Paris. For nearly two years, Alex was heavily influenced and inspired by the youth and graffiti in these two urban centres. Using a naïve approach, inspired by Dr. Seuss, Alex brings will present this youthful turmoil through rose coloured glasses. This will be Alex’s first time showing at Vancouver Fashion Week.”
