Red Jade & Malene Grotrian

Spring 2010 shows took place on Wednesday evening at Circa Resto Lounge. Red Jade by Margarita Angelatos was the winner of last year's BCFW Generation Next Award.

The show opened with all white ensembles comprised of casual separates such as trousers, shorts, skirts and jersey tops. The opening pieces were all perfect examples of daywear – suiting with feminine details, wearable both for work or the weekend.

The collection later incorporated more colour, from olive to yellow and then to all black ensembles. Each piece in the collection could easily be worn from day to night.

A look backstage...

One corner of the media section at Red Jade. Working hard or hardly working? It's felt like both all week. We're all feeling the exhaustion at this point in the week but it's hard to complain when you're attending shows and being showered in swag bags.

Our team expanded for Malene Grotrian at 8pm. Lucky me - I'm sitting with the three most stylish boys in Vancouver!

I wore pleated trousers and belt from Zara, a chain from H&M, a shoulder-padded Topshop crop tee and Marc by Marc Jacobs heels. I also carried a red vintage clutch, it's not photographed but I had to mention it since the fact that it matched my shoes perfectly was extremely satisfying. I'm such a nerd.

My official review of the Red Jade show will be online at BC Fashion Week soon - will post when I know when.

For a review of the Malene Grotrian check out the blog Solo Lisa. Her photos are beautiful.
