The highlight of our February luncheon was the fashion show that followed the buffet.
Clothing was provided by local shop Runway Fashions, which specializes in women's clothing and wearable art accessories.
Runway Fashions was established by Eun Choi in 2006. Eun studied textile art and fashion design at the Berlin University of the Arts, the largest art school in Europe. In 2018, Eun launched her own clothing line DANZI. All DANZI clothing is designed and manufactured locally in Victoria.
VWNC Vice-President Jane Ross MC'd the show while sporting one of Eun's creations. Jane commented on DANZI's distinctive style, which reflects both Asian culture and the influence of European fashion.
VWNC Vice-President Kim Girtel organized the event, and served as one of the models, along with other VWNC members. The models were greeted with appreciative applause from the audience as they glided across the room wearing fashions designed in Paris, Berlin, Montreal, the U.S.A. and Canada.
We thank Eun Choi, and model Jin Chung for their assistance with our fashion show, and VWNC members who volunteered to be models: Susan Baker, Anne Campbell, Lainey Clark, Kim Girtel, Leslie Grant, Joelle Lake, Maureen Motter-Hodgson, and Jacqueline Vetsch. Thanks also to the backstage dressers, Brenda Ramsay and Inge Ranzinger, who helped ensure the show ran smoothly.
Thanks to Carol Macpherson for the photos.
