Gala nights are always so visually delicious when those being honoured for their contributions and celebrated for excelling in their craft, dress to impress. This year’s winners were captured off-stage in all their finery.

Eco Fashion Week hosted an exclusive Gift Bag Lounge at this year’s Leo Awards, generously sponsored by Value Village at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.

In true Eco Fashion Week style, the gift bag lounge showcased brands which embody similar values of sustainability and eco-consciousness. The beyond beautiful lounge was lined with table after table of complimentary swag for the best of BC’s talent. Highlights were definitely gift certificates from any thrift lover’s paradise Value Village, local consignment hotspots such as Mine & Yours and Turnabout and international beauty purveyor (and our personal) favourite La Biosthetique.
