SPRING SUMMER 2022 By Haley Sengsavanh

With COVID-19 restrictions loosening, Vancouver Kids Fashion Week was finally able to make its live show return. This Spring Summer 2022 season occurred over two days, from October 23rd to 24th at the David Lam Hall in downtown Vancouver. The event was a huge success thanks in part to the incredible support of all our staff, volunteers, models, designers, parents, and sponsors. Talented young MCs from Indigo Education introduced all the designers and performances.

DAY ONE Day 2 included showcases from YeeHoo, Igloo Boutique and PK Beans. Another all-girl group from VISM closed the show, performing “Ex’s and Oh’s” by Elle King. PHOTOGRAPHED BY @arunnevader

What audiences didn’t get to see was the backstage buzz, which was just as electric. Our MCs were practicing their lines before the show began, to ensure they’re reciting their lines right. The excited kid models went from hair to makeup to being dressed so they’re ready to strut their stuff. The designers took one last glance at each look before they went out on the runway. Of course, we can’t forget our incredible Vancouver Kids Fashion Week team, who worked so hard to ensure backstage went smoothly so the audiences could enjoy a successful show. Vancouver Kids Fashion Week returns for another season next Spring. Be sure to follow our social media @vankidsfashionweek and check out our website vancouverkidsfashionweek.com for more details!

VKFW MODEL CASTING 9

VKFW KIDS MODEL CASTING Article by Reina Kuwahara A month before Fashion Week, kids’ model casting took place in the HY tea lounge in the waterfall building just at the corner of Kitsilano. Approximately over 200 kids and their parents lined up outside the building waiting for their turn to walk. Some were nervous, some were excited, some were too little to understand the instructions. Held by the BEETA Education group, the casting started with a pop beat. Welcomed by the balloons decorated by O2 Garden, the models majestically walked and posed on the runway. The VKFW director, Jia, says that the judge not only looks at the level of the walks but also their attitudes: whether they are confident and comfortable being in front of the public. Model casting for Vancouver Kids Fashion Week for Fall/Winter 2022 returns next Spring.

aison Louise was founded by a Japanese-born, Canadian designer, Tomoko Oxenfarth, who graduated in 2020 from the fashion design program at St. Clair College. After being awarded as the top designer in her graduating class, she launched Maison Louise Canada. Inspired by the vibrant colours and rich history of Lake Louise in Alberta, her designs focus on feminine silhouettes and youthfully bright colours. Maison Louise’s Spring/Summer 2022 Collection references French flower gardens, featuring combinations of spring colours that create harmony and chemistry. The lively influence of nature was reflected in the many fun fabrics and prints chosen, like this checkered pattern in bright yellow, tangerine, teal, and watermelon pink. Reminiscent of retro family vacation outfits, the pattern was also made into playful silhouettes such as cropped jumpsuits, fit and flare dresses, and circle skirts. The vibrant colours and shapes emulate the earth’s rebirth in the spring. www.maisonlouise.ca @maisonlouisecanada

pk beans PK Beans started as a grassroots company 14 years ago in Richmond, British Columbia. The brand’s mission is to preserve and protect our most precious things — our earth and our play time on it! After struggling with years of unexplained infertility, founder Traci Costa and her husband were finally able to conceive their first child through in vitro fertilization. Reveling in the joys of parenting, Traci found herself wondering why children’s clothing was so fussy and didn’t support children’s developmental, physical and social requirements. Learning more about play and its key role in early childhood development, Traci set out to create clothing that allowed children to play freely, while being comfortable, durable, and stylish. The brand’s thoughtful designs include functional details to reduce fuss when dressing. They also make mixing and matching styles easy and create custom fabrics so kids don’t have to worry about feeling itchy in their PK Beans clothes! The functionality of their clothes was highlighted by their sherpa ¼ zip sweaters, flowy velvet pants, flexible sweatsets, and playful onesies in the brand’s Spring/ Summer 2022 showcase. Patterns such as stripes and polka dots added to the joy in this PK Beans collection. Young models walked down the runway with a matching doll in hand, or together with another model. Ethically made and designed to last, PK Beans is devoted to reviving and recycling. To demonstrate their commitment, if a customer’s garment gets a hole or a stain and their clothing is no longer wearable, the piece can be returned to PK Beans! The garment will be made into something new through their adorable Repurposed Doll Clothing Collection, called Lil Bean. PK Beans believes playful living makes happier humans.

Thank you! Now that we have come to the end of VKFW, I would like to express my warmest thanks to the organizers who made everything happen, and the Canadian Cancer Society for providing such a good opportunity for us to be part of the progress in curing cancer. A special thank you goes to all the families who have shown their social responsibilities. With your involvement, we have raised $6000 to support cancer research. We are looking forward to seeing you next year!
