For many who may have been unable to come out to this electric, unforgettable night, we have the FOMO recap of the night’s events.
The BCITMA worked closely with Vancity Street to host the 8th annual fashion show that highlighted an amazing night of fashion and style featuring local acts, local designers and local performers. Unlike many external events, this event was so hype in the fact that the talented artists were all from your very own city of Vancouver.
The event was presented by Are You MIA & BOI Culture, in collaboration with The Basement by Loyal Coalition & Vancity Original Brand. Big shout-outs to the Director of Events – Dana Gabat (with VP of Events – Cathleen Sun and the rest of the committee) who flawlessly organized and coordinated the event with the night’s spectacular, ‘bringing the hype’ MC and director of Are You MIA – Krystal Lukashuk.
Fire + Hype + Energy = Krystal
…Alright, enough with the introductions – I know everyone is waiting to see the creative, beautiful aesthetic that Vancouver’s very own local designers showcased on stage.
The night featured runway sets by:
But the night did not start, or simply end with the fire runway showcasing all of these talented designers and their fashion. We were fortunate to collaborate with Emotions Open Mic, who helped to organize and create a line-up of talented Emcees who really created the vibrant atmosphere and chill vibe that best accompanied the hype runway.
…But guess who also got the opportunity to bring back a passion of his – performing on stage – at this hype event?

Huge thank-you to everyone who came out and supported the local initiative and movement toward continuing to build up hype and brand awareness of Vancouver’s very own. The 8th Annual Fashion Show was something special in particular – and I am glad that I was able to be a part of the event in more ways than one!
