The 2011 Eco Fashion Week Vancouver kicked off with a great opening party at the Aveda Institute Vancouver.
Aveda is a perfect presenting partner for Eco Fashion Week as they both have a great philosophy that fashion doesn’t have to forgo sustainability in the pursuit of style.
The flagship Aveda Institute in the heart of Vancouver’s Gastown neighbourhood is a great venue for this (or any event) as the training area opens up into a large function space.
Warmly welcomed with sushi from Sushi Zero One and a cocktail made with organic Schramm Vodka from Pemberton Distillery, a NatureLand Organic Lager or Painted Turtle Wine the event took on a convivial atmosphere. Add in an Aveda Hand Ritual or Stress-Relieving massage using the Aveda’s signature aromatic essential oil based products and the evening was off to a perfect start!
Eco Fashion Week President Myriam Laroche welcomed the guests with a few words to kick off this second celebration of environmentally conscious designers, manufacturers and retailers.
