Social Fabric's Live Fashion Show

undefined

 

With the government's new initiative of penalising Vancouverites who don't recycle, grassroots textile company Social Fabric are encouraging locals to think about ways to avoid dumping clothes. This weekend, witness the transformation of tired goods to modern classics in a fashion show entitled RE-POURSEFUL. Highlighting recycled clothing, local fashion historian Ivan Sayers will show his personal collection of vintage sartorial goods on live models. Repurposed items like the teddy shown - created by local artist Lisa Lee - will be auctioned to support OSF's reduction of textile waste in B.C., with ticket sales benefitting the same cause.

Nomad Pops Up at UBC

undefinedNomad's ethos is that you should never stop wandering; a journey that has materialized in the form of a UBC pop up. The slope-inspired line -- think toques galore -- has teamed up with outlandish legging-design brand Lucky Babe and street-smart Lavish Tee to bring B.C.-based fashion brands to the masses, running through January 31.

Aside from gnarly clothing, Nomad also brings four models of snowboards to the mix: reverse camber, camber, zero camber, and hybrid camber. Here's hoping Whistler's powder will get better in time to show off the new gear.

undefinedPart of the Diva Collection from Austrian designers FREYWILLE, the Vienna ring is 24k-infused with a fire enamel design. Plated in Rhodium-Palladium, this burst of colour is styled as an 'ode to joy', which we would happily sing along with.

If you feel qualified to be on the extra-nice list this year, a
little blue box is the perfect reward. This Paloma's Sugar
Stacks ring is 18k with a splattering of diamonds. If you happen
to be on the Mother Theresa level of niceness, this shiner also
comes with a pendant to match.

We cannot get enough of these Foe and Dear rough sapphires from Cavalier. Rough stones may slightly resemble lumps of coal, but there is something special about knowing the sparkle is in there somewhere.
