FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ELAINE HEALY TO SHOW LUXURY COLLECTION
AT VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK FALL/WINTER 2018
26 January, 2018, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Elaine Healy is the talk of the city as she prepares to present her captivating new collection at Vancouver Fashion Week F/W 2018 Season (VFW). The featured brand focuses on luxury womenswear and unisex styles.
Elaine Healy’s Fall/Winter 2018 presentation is driven by her love for combining technology with the art of creating wearable garments. With a focus on her ‘man versus machine’ aesthetic, the collection embodies a merging of technological processes with handmade sewing techniques. Through the use of surface manipulations and a minimal color palette, utility fabrics will be transformed into unique textiles. Viewers can expect to experience silhouettes that are fresh and modern with a sense of timelessness.
Vancouver Fashion Week is the fastest growing fashion week in the world and the only industry event that actively seeks out to showcase international award winning designers from over 25 global fashion capitals. Since its inception 17 years ago, VFW has operated with a firm belief in being a well-grounded local initiative with global instincts and intuition.
“Mixing emerging and established designers from across the world has been our recipe for success for over 17 years. Vancouver Fashion Week is fortunate to be working with remarkable talent and growing alongside maturing designers. We are grateful that we as an organization can, and have acted as a stepping stone in their careers.” says Jamal Abdourahman, producer and founder of Vancouver Fashion Week.
