Nicole Bridger’s eco friendly collection is being touted as one of the ‘ones to watch’ at the upcoming BC Fashion Week. Her collection plays with shape and detail, each piece balancing offbeat basics with a mild avant garde undertone.
Bridger’s fashion tour begain with an apprenticeship with Vivienne Westwood, the Queen of Punk design and one of the most important designers of the 20th century. She then returned home to Vancouver and hooked up with Chip Wilson, founder of Lululemon, to co-create the organic and sustainable clothing brand OQOQO (pronounced OhKoKo). Having learned the ins and outs of sustainability she’s now launched her own self-titled line, Nicole Bridger.
OCTOBER UPDATE! Nicole Bridger is the winner of Generation-Next, the best new designer competition of BC Fashion Week.
Starting to get chilly! Fall’s go-to chapeau: the Veil Beanie! It’s got ease, overall style, and glamour quotient.
Knitted, ribbed, printed, and more…get your veil beanie on. Veils started popping up in plain day courtesy of Jil Sander‘s 2012 collection at Fashion Week. Today – in 2013 -2014 Fall/Winter – the veiled beanies are a top trend because the sporty/comfy style of a beanie is a perfect marriage with the posh, mysterious elegant way of a sheer veil.
This is for all my girls who really hate those tops and dresses that make it almost impossible to hide our bra straps. Well designer Christine Ko brilliantly devised a Kaiio a sparkly solution–gorgeous crystal bra straps you won’t want to hide!
Kaiio offers gorgeous one-of-a-kind crystal straps that replace traditional bra straps and become the perfect accessory to add a little sparkle to your Holiday Season.
Three years ago, Christine Ko, founder of Kaiio, made her first crystal jeweled strap solely to give her work uniform a little something extra. After numerous compliments and customers asking to buy her pieces she became determined to launch her own company to share her sparkle with the rest of the world. In August 2013, Christine Ko and Quinton Van Der Burgh partnered to create a dazzling line of crystal jeweled straps known as Kaiio. From humble beginnings, Kaiio was destined to be the finishing touch to the little black dress.
“There’s no such thing as too much sparkle…it gives women the option to add a wow factor to a little black dress or a hint of glam to a blouse and jeans.” Designer, Christine Ko says.
With the straps retailing between $300-$700 and rings for $85, Kaiio looks and feels as luxurious as a diamond piece that doesn’t cost the high precious stone price.
