This image is one my own - a favourite!

While all of these designers are not returning, there will be many new ones to offer us another view of fashion. One of my absolute, hands-down favourites each season is the 68 Pound Challenge. Last season designer Kim Cathers (her second year taking on this challenge) created an entire collection out of knit sweaters and deconstructed men's suits. It blew the audience away. More than one woman could be heard wanting a cardigan sweater skirt or a one-shoulder sheath dress created from a pair of men's pants. This season Evan Ducharme will be stepping into this roll. I can't wait to see where he will go with this creatively.
Please enjoy the great selection of images below and I hope to see you at EFW this coming week! The venue is downtown at the Robson Square Ice Rink.
