The Fall/Winter 2014 edition of Vancouver Fashion Week kicked off on Tuesday evening with an opening gala at the Chinese Cultural Centre.

The building was buzzing with both local and international talent, as well as herds of beautiful people in, of course, beautiful clothing.

We spotted HUSH magazine‘s Parsoua Shirzad, Maria Kritikos of Ladies Who Lunch, Inspiration Mecca‘s Joanna Kritikos, and Mel Ward from Mel’s Makeover Boutique in the crowd, to name a few.

Vancouver Fashion Week runs from March 18 to 24 andfeatures designers including such as Nina Tan, Lisa Loveday, Soojin Lee, Yuhshi Takahashi, and Evan Clayton.
