The fall season is almost upon us and what better way to kick it off than SPENDing your time at SPEND ON TREND at the Scotiabank Dance Centre (677 Davie Street). This is a great opportunity to see the autumn lines of Canadian designers and support the local economy. As an added bonus, the first 25 people through the door every morning will receive a $50 gift bag. Be sure to line up early: with over 3500 shoppers every year the loot bags go fast. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door. $1 from every ticket benefits the St. Elizabeth Home Emergency Shelter for Women and Children.
Spend on Trend will be a fantastically Canadian event with a fresh mix of new and returning participants. What are some of the expectations for Spend on Trend? For returning vetrans like Trudy Wynans of Toodlebunny Designs:
I like the mix of designers, from clothing, to home decor, jewellery, bags & accessories, etc, as well as the smaller scale of the show. I also like the fact that it showcases only 20 to 30 designers with only a select few to represent the different categories. I’m looking forward to SOT 2008 in the new location, can’t wait!
As for first-time participant Amrita Sondhi of Movement Global:
I am excited. It seems like there will be a great “mix” of “modern” products for the customer. Movement will be in good company.
What’s the Modern Mix Pick? How about this trench coat from Elroy Apparel? Everyone needs a trench coat in their closet and Elroy Apparel puts an edgy twist on the Burberry classic with its asymmetrical neckline and collar.
- In addition, be sure to read previous MMV interviews and articles on designers who will be participating in Spend on Trend: Toodlebunny and Movement Global.
I will definitely be visiting Spend on Trend so stay tuned for updates, event reviews, great buys, and photos by Modern Mix Vancouver!
