Clarisky Business x Vous Valet Designer Challenge

Now when I said I was a busy busy bee this fall I meant it, but don't be fooled I have not left the fashion world high and dry!  In fact I have been involved in a unique local fashion project that you are most definitely going to want to follow.

Elizabeth Savenkoff, owner of the designer consignment boutique Vous Valet in Yaletown, has put together an amazing opportunity for Vancouver Designers..... think Project Runway's upcycling episode + 5 young Vancouver designers.

Designers are given 60 seconds to grab previously loved clothing articles from the Vous Valet store and then challenged to design an outfit from the pieces they collected in 48 hours that incorporates their personal style and a theme from their randomly chosen "inspiration piece".  The winner gets a whack load of fabulous prizes including having their designs featured in Vous Valet.  My favourite part of the competition is that the Runner Ups get to donate their  creations to a charity of their choice to be worn by some very special ladies.



I almost forgot to mention  that the winner is chosen by viewer votes, so after the final episode is aired you must head on over to the Vous Valet facebook page to get voting!

The first episode is up for viewing now so click on the screen shot above to watch.  This episode gives you a little introduction to the designers that will be participating in the challenge.

Be sure to check back often for more episodes and to see our final creations revealed.. who knows maybe the very next Donatella will be discovered right in front of your eyes.

P.S. if you haven't yet checked out Vous Valet (1241 Hamilton) ummmmmm what are you waiting for??! we are talking Louis Vuitton, Louboutin, Chanel, etc. at amazingly discounted prices.

So go on and get watching and tell me what you think.  I'll be sure to let you know when the next episodes are up and ready for viewing.
