This event was a great success last year and we are excited to bring it back again. We have partnered up with Night Market Vancouver to bring you a marketplace filled with locally made fashion apparel and accessories. Food and Drink will be available for purchase. Meet our Couve Couture designers and potentially purchase items that walked down the runway!
To make this event even better we have teamed up with Waste Connections and Evergreen Public Schools / Cascadia Tech Center to put on a youth fashion show at 1pm. We will be auditioning Fashion Program students prior to the show and choose our top ten. The the public will then have a chance to vote for their favorite(s) giving us our top eight to walk their mini collection down the runway at the Fashion Marketplace. One ‘look’ for each designer must be an up-cycled creation. Waste Connections will vote for their top two who will receive a $250 scholarship to our new downtown Vancouver sewing school, Sew Op and Makerspace, opening March 2020.
Couve Couture is a non-profit organization. We have partnered again with Share of Vancouver where a portion of show proceeds will be donated. Share of Vancouver is an incredible organization that helps the hungry and homeless within our community.
We hope you will invite a friend, plan a date and attend out two-day event!
