Fashion & Shopping Events

Vancouver Fashion Week

Fashionistas, rejoice! As it turns out, Vancouver isn’t all yoga pants and rain boots, as evidenced by the ever-chic Vancouver Fashion Week. This semi-annual event, held in Chinatown, features a cavalcade of local designers, along with Canadian and international talent, showcasing their upcoming collections on the runway. Seven days of shows are capped on both ends by galas that prove to be the see-and-be- seen opportunities of the season.

Got Craft? Vancouver

If chain stores and corporate malls leave you feeling uninspired, add a much-needed dose of creativity to your shopping bag by attending Got Craft? Vancouver. Twice each year, this craft fair connects shoppers with local artisans, so you can support the Vancouver crafts community while stocking up on unique gifts and household items, such as vintage-inspired accessories, gluten-free baked goods, handmade ceramics, cozy knits, letterpress cards and gourmet chocolates. Got Craft? takes place the first Sunday of May as well as the first Sunday of December—perfect timing to pick something up for those on your holiday list.
