On the weekend I was able to hang out with some friends and catch the shows at Vancouver Fashion Week. One of my favorite presentations from Saturday night was Nova Chiu, a collection that "embodies elements from ethnic cultures from China, Canada and Europe concentrating on classic silhouettes from London and New York."
I absolutely loved all of the colours, textiles and prints in Nova Chiu's collection. I feel that Nova Chiu is a label that stands true to who they are as individuals, the Asian and European influences are clearly visible throughout. Each piece screams history and tradition of ethnic cultures from China with the prints and textures, while the cuts feel Eurpoean and modern. Oh, and the shoes...THE BOMB, I want 'em all!!!
What really made my heart melt was when Nova Chiu and her partner Jeff Archer came out hand in hand at the end of the show. It's really beautiful to see the art that partners can create with love, dedication and honour.
