Elina Ten’s Eco Couture ‘ INsideOUT UPsideDOWN.’ At VFW 2016

Privet Everyone! It’s finally spring time which means the flowers will begin blooming, and there will be new styles to obsess over. To celebrate spring I’m thinking that this show I saw at Vancouver Fashion Week suits the new season perfectly. Elina Ten’s Eco Couture Collection is all about florals. The clothing reminded me of a fantasy world, where the outfits would be seen on women attending a debutante afternoon tea party. Can you imagine those tea parties during the Edwardian and Gilded age? And the scandals women would discuss? These days it would be all about booty size.

Elina’s collection INsideOUT  UPsideDOWN  incorporates ancient silk art and nunofelted techniques that produce vibrant colours, textures, and involves a lot of emotion. Her collections are often about transforming the wearer into a painting, think of it as the artistic concept of wearable art. Not only are her collections visually stunning they are eco conscious. Elina often works with organic and natural silks, wools, bamboo, and linens that are sustainable materials. The clothing she creates in her 3D art design studio in Richmond Hill, Ontario Canada, are seamless, reversible, soft-shear and have an airy texture. Anyways, enjoy the collection 🙂

  1. Florals for spring is my new favorite cliche! ‘Booty size’ – you are so right! I truly have a great time reading your posts 🙂

    • Loving it, maybe you are right,

      As for shoe trends that I’ve been noticing..
      to even what Dnaya Weevers had on her models,
      the biggest trend for shoes is anything that is lace up,
      think lace up ballet flats, or heels, those are popping up all over.
      While the stores in my area are rolling out the sandals and Birkenstocks in pink, green and white (lol) and sneakers for Atheleisure wear! I saw the Dior Fusion Sneakers in person (http://www.dior.com/couture/en_us/womens-fashion/shoes/sneakers)
      Dior is really trying to jump in on the “on the go” lifestyle which is reminding me of their 2014 sport heel collection all over again.As for the Dior Fusions the embellishments are intriguing but they also seem too delicate, to want to wear out. Perhaps for photo ops only?

      so I would say lace up everything, embellished sneakers, colourful sandals, and… the odd flatform are trending.
