New Fall ’08 collections, a new Gastown location and a new batch of Generation Next designers are the highlights of B.C. Fashion Week, on until Friday.
Vancouver’s “fashion forward” district, Gastown, is hosting this year’s fashion shows, held previously at the Performance Works theatre and the Scotia Bank Dance Centre. This year’s main stage is at the Chinese Cultural Centre at 50 W. Pender St.
The finalists have already been selected for the Generation Next fashion show, where three designers compete for a photo editorial in a national magazine.
“Generation Next is tailored to give that extra hand to those that have a strong vision of where they want to be,” said Vladimir Markovich, creative director of B.C. Fashion Week.
The finalists for the Generation Next show — to be held Thursday at 5:30 p.m. — are Vancouver’s Christie Clayton, Calgary’s Lara Presber and Victoria-based Marcy Ross.
