As a Vancouver fashion blogger, it gives me immense pleasure to see talented individuals from our fair city get recognition for the amazing work they're doing. Malene Grotrian is one such talent. I've been a huge fan of her work since meeting her at Blushing Boutique in February and watched delightedly as she received more and more recognition in the past year and made her Vancouver Fashion Week debut. And now she's showing at New York Fashion Week, the only Canadian designer to do so!
Vancouverites who aren't lucky enough to see her NYFW debut (myself included) can purchase a ticket for A Bite of the Big Apple happening Thursday September 24th, 7:00pm, at Canvas Lounge (99 Powell Street). Attendees will be treated to a show featuring the same spring/summer 2010 fashions shown during NYFW. The first 20 people to show up will receive complimentary handbags from Friis & Company.
