Nearly 1200 guests are enjoying the pre-show festivities Just over a week ago, Blanche Macdonald Centre hosted their largest graduate fashion show ever at the Westin Bayshore hotel in Vancouver. As one of many beaming grads I thought the show was incredibly well organized and ran smoothly...

Anyway, this shoot reminded me of that, although the models don't have different coloured eyes, I still love the vibrant tones of shadow. Maybe it is time for me to take out my green and pink eyeshadows! p.s. I am starting my New York Fashion Week coverage tomorrow. Not looking forward to...

This is the third part of my Guy Bourdin Pretty Pictures (read part one -Vogue , and part two – Beauty ) and probably my favourite of the series. The photos are campaigns for the footwear brand Charles Jourdan, which is a brand that still exists but it isn't the same as it was in the back in...

A Line by Jillian McNab VCAD's first group of fashion design students graduated last week. As an instructor there, I decided it would be much better to skip the boring student fashion show (the bane of my existence...lots of fascinators, up-dos, semi-professional models, and a three hour...

The new Stella McCartney could be among them, although she never loved animals enough to make a sweatshirt with 80 pictures of one. Here are the craziest looks for graduate fashion week. Grace Weller won the George Gold award and the womenswear award for her painterly, showy embroidered...

Suzy Menkes described Graduate Fashion Week as an 'enthralling experience' exposing 'controlled creativity'. It is where the designers of tomorrow are discovered. Earls Court was turned into a brightly coloured, creatively designed space filled to the brim with talent and future trends. I was...

When I need inspiration of any sort, or if I am bored and want to look at some pretty pictures, then I can flip through my books and get transported to another world. These are the five favourite fashion photography books on my bookshelf. Helmut Newton's Sleepless Nights Helmut Newton's...

I'm not sure this should be titled "Pretty Pictures," instead, it should be "Loathe: Helena Christensen Looks Effing Amazing and She is 45." Because I'm jealous. Although I must say that I am very happy she isn't overly retouched in this shoot. There are a few shots where her skin looks like...

Apologies on the dour note to begin a post about what is in fact an exuberant outpouring of talent from Graduate Fashion Week. With two days of nothing to do but to go back and forth between toilet and computer, I've had a ton of time to sort out my photos from GFW, gathering up my personal...
