Vancity Tribe: Part 2 (Vancouver, BC)
February 1st 2014 was when I first introduced you to Christine Taylor Wong of Vancity Tribe. I absolutely loved shooting with her and Melissa Wong Photography. After Christine's first look we had a full set of second photos that I wanted to do another story around. Seeing how quickly these fashionable ladies change up their looks from season to season it was impossible for me to run her second set of photos without reshooting Christine's current look. Love the blonde (and even more recent she now has blue!). I’ve come to be really intrigued by the Style Stories series, telling someone’s story through fashion and learning about how my jewelry is speaking to their style is priceless to me. It's really great to revisit Christine's story after 8 months to see what she has been up to. I’m also really excited to tell you that Sarah Mulder Jewelry will be participating in one of the fashion shows that Vancity Tribe is hosting this winter.
“Since we last spoke I've been keeping busy releasing new spotlight features on local artists and have been organizing my next big event.
Wednesday December 3rd I am organizing a Black Tie Event at The Waterfall Building, a beautiful venue, featuring 3 local designers. This event will support local brands, designers and musicians. Tickets are on sale for $30. The night will entail live music, complementary h'orderves from French chef Matthieu and a fashion show to conclude the evening. The models will be walking down the runway to Koban, voted best band 2014 in the Georgia Straight. Koban's genre is described as post punk, dark wave, synth goth. The concept of the show will be dark and spooky to match the themes of the designers Fall/Winter Collections.
We will be featuring Hey Jude, The Bitch Can Stitch and Sarah Mulder Jewelry. What sets apart this event from others is the models will be walking to live music, and unlike my previous events with a more casual hip hop vibe, this event will be more formal (black tie/dress to impress)."
The vibe of the show promises not to be pretentious even with the “dress to impress” fashion code. Vancity Tribe wanted to present and evening where Vancouverites could have the opportunity to dress up and listen to some great live music and celebrate the local fashion scene.
“Everyone is welcome to attend. Our generation, parents, grandparents... Though the grandparents might complain the music is too loud and not understand this concept at all... I'm looking forward for this night.”
