Vancouver Fashion Designer Evan Clayton Goes International!

Evan Clayton, rising star fashion designer and Vancouver’s very own, is gearing up to showcase his Spring / Summer 2015 collection this coming September. A follow-up to his very successful debut at the Vancouver Fashion Week 2014! He is poised to yet again make waves not only in the Vancouver fashion arena but as well as abroad, where he’ll be showcasing his collection at the MQ Vienna Fashion Week! This exciting news was posted on his Facebook as follows …

Evan Clayton is proud to present his Spring / Summer 2015 collection – DEATH PROOF – at this season’s MQ Vienna Fashion Week and Vancouver Fashion Week showcases. The show will take place at the MuseumQuartier in Vienna, Austria on September 13th at 2 p.m. and in Vancouver, Canada at The Queen Elizabeth Theater on September 16th at 8:30 p.m. The follow-up to last season’s Nancy Mak Award winning collection “JENOVA” is inspired by the filmwork of famed director Quentin Tarantino, with special notice given to Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2 and Death Proof. The collection is a hard romp through the over sexed world of excess and glamour in the early 2000’s, and a social commentary on the commodification of women in pop culture. Primary colours collide while harsh lines slash through the silhouette. Anonymity is explored through the use of eyewear in collaboration with Sue Randhawa of The Optical Boutique. Other collaborations include prints by renowned visual artist Kat Thorsen, visuals by Teniel Messado and Rick Legal, and modeled by local drag celebrities Jane Smoker, Jem and Valynne Vile. This collection caters to women who are unafraid of embracing their sexuality and who don’t shy away from making a bold statement with their appearance.
