- Brett Allred here. We just love putting on these shows to share the innovative people in our area to you. Mark your calendar for April 2014 for our all out show featuring the best of Vancouver.
What an incredible night of fashion! A very special Thank You to all our designers, models, hair and make-up artists, photographers, stylists and volunteers who made this show a great success.
Usually our Couve Couture judging panel picks the best of auditioning designers for future shows but we thought it would be fun to do a special show, which was held last night, to allow attendees to vote for their favorite.
AND THE WINNERS OF OUR COUVE COUTURE DESIGNER CONTEST ARE:
Seth Aaron | The Official Page Top pick: Taylor Trapnell - Taylor was also FashioNXT's 2013 people's choice winner for the young designers contest.
Designers advancing to Couve Couture Spring fashion show April 2014: Carlie Bailes and Caryn Dougherty Stockwell of Second Star Designs
New Award category, Youth Designer Scholarship: Nike-Emmanuella Pappas. Nike will be added as a fourth new designer to our Spring line-up as our Couve Couture pick for our 'Local, up-and-comer, youth scholarship recipient. Nike has proven her passion for fashion. For her senior project at VSAA, last year, she chose to research Coco Chanel and then create five little black dresses, from scratch, with no sewing experience. With the help of you-tube, she did it. Nike incapsulates what Couve Couture is all about... inspiring and celebrating our community through fashion.
