One month from now, Vancouver Men’s Fashion Week 2013 kicks off with a VIP reception & style seminars August 8th at Hotel Le Soleil and runway shows at Woodward’s Atrium on August 10th.
Founded in 2010, by renaissance man; engineer-pilot-entrepreneur-sartorialist Jun Ramos when he saw a need to support Vancouver’s burgeoning men’s fashion industry. Half of the accessory design team Ramos & Fortier, Jun saw a need for the next generation of designers in the industry to step up and lead the way out from the shadow of the traditionally women’s focused fashion industry. This year VMFW is mentoring and showcasing five up and coming Vancouver based designers to help guide them through the industry.
Events at this year’s VMFW will be hosted by Krista Guloien, Olympic Rowing Silver Medalist, after party will be at The Queen’s Republic Pub,
August 8th Seminar topics include; Men’s skincare from Keihl’s Specialists Vanessa Zilkie, Style tips from Boy’s Co, Menswear 2013-14 forecast with The Social Life’s Viranlly Liemena and Fitness Tips from West Coast Fitness’s Mike Dirks.
Advance tickets for all events are available now on Eventbrite from $24.95. For out of town visitors Hotel Le Soliel and The Loden are offering special accommodation discounts.
