Eugene Choo's Kildare Curtis shares his Vancouver favourites in advance of our second annual Made in Vancouver Awards.
The son of a grocer and an artist, Kildare Curtis was raised in various small towns and outposts in the Canadian arctic and prairies, but today, the founder of beloved fashion outpost Eugene Choo Clothing is happy to call Vancouver home—and we’re happy to call him a judge in our second annual Made in Vancouver awards.
His keen eye will help us choose this year’s Style winner from what he sees as a city full of innovators. “Perhaps because it’s such a young city that young people are maybe not as inhibited by an old guard or feelings of a status quo,” says Curtis. “Our reputation has swung from being a city of outdoorsy dressed and unfashionable people, to a respected and stylishly dressed city. Ironically we’ve come full circle to where outdoorsy is now fashion. Maybe the rest of the world just took a while to come around to our style?”
Here, Curtis shares his local favourites as we count down to the Made in Vancouver Awards deadline. (Get those entries in by March 13!)
