This week I had the greatest pleasure of attending the Flare World Runway Tour fashion show in Vancouver! This was the first show I had ever been to and I was BEYOND excited, after obsessing for a week about outfit choices I dawned a red peplum top, black tulip skirt, tights, high black wedge booties and some gold accessories and headed out for an awesome girls night out. The cocktail hour was wonderful Tres Semme & Este Lauder were there doing impromptu hair, make-up and manis for the attendees. The girls and I gushed over everyone’s outfits (everyone was dressed to the nines!), the venue (Four Seasons baby!) and had a wonderful time sampling the many treats. From mango shooters, macaroons, caramel apples, to cotton candy and tiramisu, the spread was glorious!
Next, we headed to the Pacific Centre Atrium for a runway run-down of all the latest fall fashion trends. Yours truly was in the FRONT ROW! *stars in eyes* Here are some inspired collections by the Flare WRT 🙂 Enjoy!

LEATHER: This edgy trend lends is more moody and tough than the lovely pastels. Whether it s a leather dress or leather accents, these pieces have a sexier side to them. Go for unexpected shapes or accessories for an edgier look.
PLAID: That’s right, we are all mad for plaid! The punk and grunge revival this season (leather too!) has brought some tantalizing tartan to our runways. Plaid can be very versatile depending on what it’s paired with: pair it some cute flats for a pretty, girly look or some tougher hardware (think studs!) for an edgier look.

OVERSIZED COATS: Voluminous shapes are the it outerwear trend this season. Be wary of the fit, you want volume but not in the wrong places. If you don’t think you can pull of this trend off, go for shapes that are more nipped at the waist.
