In other news, the October 2010 issue of Vancouver Fashion eZine is now online. This month I had the opportunity to interview a local designer whose work I've admired for a long time, Malene Grotrian. In the few years that her namesake line has been in business, Malene has accomplished a lot. She received the first standing ovation in Vancouver Fashion Week's history and was the only Canadian designer invited to show at New York Fashion Week in fall 2009. But behind her seemingly overnight success story is years of training, hard work, and a keen business sense. Want to find out more about this talented Danish-born, Vancouver-based designer? Click here to read my article (which just happens to be this month's cover story).
Ooh, and more VFE news: The second print edition is here. This high-quality publication collates the past year of articles and photography into one gorgeous glossy collectible. To get your own copy, order online or check the website to see which local retailers are selling it.
To my Canadian readers, have a fantastic Thanksgiving long weekend! What do you have planned?
