This fall Vancouver Fashion Week was the same week as the Women in Leadership Foundation gala, so I was only able to attend one night.  I picked opening night with Jacqueline Conoir, Valerio Moda, Michel Tudour and Patricia Fieldwalker.

Jacqueline Conoir opened her show with some gorgeous black and camel jersey outfits.  They had those unique JC details, like as asymmetrical neckline or uneven hemlines.  All while looking so comfortable at the same time.  Then there was the updated 1970s pant suits.  I call these the Power Charlie's Angel suits. When wearing it you can take down a couple of bad guys before brunch with your girlfriends.  She also had an updated  Chanel-like tweed suit. These lovely white and black tweed suits were modern and contemporary. But with the Chanel touches, like piping, in a fresh way along a slit.  Of course there were the trademark Jacqueline Conoir silk prints - both in tops and dresses.

I'll be honest I didn't take any photos of the Valerio Moda's collection.  He showed some gorgeous men's leather pieces.  And I certainly enjoyed the show.

?Michel Tudour describes her designs as an exotic couture female line.Its unique designs are exclusive pieces that shows a woman's exotic, classy, yet bold and strong side.   Her designs were playful and fun.  Her models had attitude.  And a few of her pieces took me back to the 80s.  My husband would certainly love to see me in a few of her outfits.

Finally there was Patricia Fieldwalker and her lovely silky lingerie.  My favourites were the robes.  A long silky robe reminds me of a lovely Sunday sleeping in, having breakfast in-bed and generally having a lazy day.  A dreamy luxury morning for the mom of an active toddler.
