Designer Profile: Eva Chen Couture
Eva Chen is a whirlwind. Two collections a year, two home cities (Vancouver/LA), two cell phones and endless requests for custom dresses. Despite her crazy schedule, Eva still finds time to visit the Vancouver Fashion Week office and charm us all with her boundless energy and incredible talent. I had met Eva all of five minutes when she took off her self-designed leather jacket and insisted I try it on. We can add sharp sales lady to her list of talents because now I dream of that soft soft leather and how I need it for every outfit I own.
A Vancouver Fashion Week veteran, Eva has also showcased her collections on runways in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Toronto. This year, Eva Chen Couture was requested for Academy Award attendees and worn by the Queen of the Universe when she won her title at the Beverly Hills beauty pageant.
Eva Chen’s gowns evoke old Hollywood glamour and leave every girl lusting for a red carpet arrival moment.
Eva Chen’s gowns are magnificent, but her impeccably tailored women’s suits, day dresses and leather lines are also exquisitely crafted. Eva’s collections are so diverse, that I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us this year at Vancouver Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2013.
Sorry, I couldn’t provide you with a sneak peek at that leather jacket, but it might appear on the runway and I want to avoid spoiler alerts. Or it might appear on me soon and I want to avoid copycats. #selfish.
Eva Chen’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection takes to the runway Sunday, March 24th at 7p.m. It’s going to be a popular show, so best to get tickets soon at www.vanfashionweek.com .
In other news, Vancouver Fashion Week officially launches today, with a gala befitting of Eva Chen’s gowns at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver. Runway shows begin tomorrow, March 20th at the Chinese Cultural Centre. Please visit the VFW website for a complete designer schedule.
would like to say thank you to the incredible team of volunteers that have made Vancouver Fashion Week possible. It has been an outstanding effort by all and now is the time to watch that work transformed into runway magic. And not to worry, our amazing makeup sponsor Missha Canada is sure to have something for those under eye circles∼
