FUELING ECO FASHION WEEK
Posted on Thursday April 7, 2016
Vancouver’s annual stylish and sustainable fashion event is in its 10th edition and Eco Fashion Week continues to raise global awareness for social, environmental and economical sustainable consumption.
And fashionistas need fuel too!
We’ll be on location at the Fairmont Waterfront catering a wide variety of our fresh pizza to Lunch with the Ladies. Hosted by Shaw TV’s Fiona Forbes, this networking group of fashionable Vancouver tastemakers will be discussing challenges and triumphs of sartorial sustainability.
The following day we’ll be onsite at the EFW Collective Conversation to fuel attendees and panelists alike. The event is an afternoon of open dialogue for the fashion industry and the general public. Moderated by Entertainment Tonight’s Erin Cebula, Collective Conversation aims to provide information on the challenges, opportunities and innovations facing sustainability in the garment and textile industry. A variety of panelist will share their views and expertise including, Vancouver-based Designer Nicole Bridger, Kyle Rudzinski (Sustainability Manager at Levi and Strauss Co.), and Brock Macdonald (Vice Chairman of Canada’s National Zero Waste Council). The event will conclude with an exclusive interview with John Fluevog, the founder and head designer of Fluevog Shoes.
Eco Fashion Week kicks off this Saturday with a Welcome Breakfast at Mercer Creative before heading to the Fairmont Waterfront to showcase sustainable fashion on the runway. From reconstructing bed linen into contemporary wearable art during Balmain Chic Sheets to recycling preloved clothing into modern vintage wear for Value Village’s 81 lbs Challenge, or seeing local and international designers present their latest collections down the runway, the week has something for everyone and is packed with sustainable creativity.
Get your tickets today, we hope to see you there!
