Vancouver Fashion Week 2016 Story
For some reason i was inspired to create a video where I was going to share my story about the many different fashion designers I met in poetry form.
I have always loved poetry, but haven’t written any for years. This year, it all came back to me and I have now written at least 10 poems since Christmas (and it is March). If you like this sort of thing and want your very own poetry story, you will be happy to know that I charge only $25 for the average poem.
Back to my Fashion Story, here is the YouTube Link:
The description reads: I went to the Vancouver Fashion Week on March 15th and 19th mainly in order to meet German fashion designers and anyone else inspired or connected to Germany for my blog “Westcoast German News”. At the same time, I also met other designers and thanks to a front row seat, was able to take a few picture that I am now sharing with anyone interested. www.vanfashionweek.com
Some of the artists mention in this video include Gabrielab, Grace C.Y. Lam, Jennifer Somoza, Elephanatics, TFORTHREE, Lima Jordan, Gatsbylady London, Scarlett Bruns, Bethany Williams, Noe Bernacelli, Firan&Rose, Danny Reinke, and a few others… enjoy!
Three Different Activists
I really enjoyed learning about the different ways that fashion designers can be activists and I would like to highlight the Elephantiasis connected to the Vancouver Group Elephanatics (http://elephanatics.org/about/) that says on their website: Elephanatics was formed in May 2013. We are the only elephant advocacy organization in British Columbia, Canada! Our mission is to help the long-term survival of African and Asian elephants by raising awareness and disseminating information regarding the enormous challenges and suffering elephants face in Africa’s poaching crisis and in Asia’s tourist trade
I would also like to talk about Bethany Williams and her “Breadline Collection” who states: The current collection ‘Breadline’ particularly wants to highlight and help find solutions to the hidden hunger in the UK, specifically working along side the Vauxhall Food Bank and Tesco to achieve this. We have developed an exchange of fresh fruit and vegetables (from Tesco) for waste items from the food banks users household. We have developed a collection using these waste materials, plus recycled cardboard and ‘Tesco everyday value’ branded organic prints, all donated by Tesco. We will be donating 30% of profits to The Vauxhall food bank, continuing the cycle of exchange.
Also, Scarlett Bruns, a German-Canadian model with her own agency Leo Management, also worked hard to: play an important role in educating the mass about the BC Film tax credits. Teaming up with her film crew, Scarlett ended up casting and producing PSA’s to raise awareness using the slogan #SaveBCFilm back in 2013
