On Saturday November 30th, Taste Makers by Trish P unveiled their new retail collection at the beautiful Sol Sun Belt Cookery. The dazzling venue went hand in hand with the modern and trendy designs of the collection, featuring “Out of this World” prints. The event was sponsored by: Taste Makers By Trish P., StreetSide Fashion, Urban Decay Cosmetics, Locals Only Crew and CC Equipment Sales LTD.

The evening was full of energetic lively fun, with bumping beats by DJ Goofio. It was a mix of professional, polished execution as well as an easygoing and friendly atmosphere. Some familiar faces could be picked out from the crowds, such as Mark Abenir (Designer), Paige Sierra (StreetSide Fashion), and Viv Leacock (Actor). It all began with cocktails and delicious appetizers - catered by Sol Sun Cookery followed by a fashion short written and directed by Mr. Invisible. 

Then the Taste Makers collection hit the runway.The models and the garments they showcased boasted statements of confidence and resilience, as well as an empowering message for women. After the fashion show, the public had the opportunity to view and buy the exciting collection before it hit the streets. It was apparent that the line was locally based, emanating the city's lifestyle, and that Trish was completely conscious of the consumer when she designed the collection. The selection had a timeless feel designed so people of all ages, shapes and sizes could wear the clothing comfortably. 

I personally had the opportunity to work with Trish and the Taste Makers team; it was truly inspiring to work with such a committed and passionate group of people. This close knit community worked incredibly hard; making sure that every last detail was perfect. Taste Makers represents the ambition, passion and teamwork of the Vancouver independent fashion scene as well as the art community as a whole.Taste Makers embodies the values of perseverance and family. The brand's creator, managers, models and media interns make up a deep-rooted partnership and friendship, which acts as the glue that holds the entire outfit together.

The evening also featured a charity fundraiser with donations accepted at the door. Taste Makers and Locals Only Crew were able to donate $600 to BC Children’s Hospital.
