Their innovative lifestyle wear is quickly establishing itself in the Vancouver fashion industry. They bring freshness to basics with clean silhouettes and a signature aesthetic. Heavily influenced by the pack they run in, you know who their friends are. In collaboration with model Sami Thompson one can see their keen eye and attention to detail.
Thompson who recently got her start in the modeling world with a dramatic hair cut has now has worked with photographers Alex Waber, Andrew Gerard and Christina Lazar – Schuler. Vancouver fashion week found her on the runway for 7 Crash, TKC, Eliza Faulkner and more. She is now signed to Leo Management and allows her unique energy to shine through all her work. Both brand and model are advocates to just be yourself, and just be cool.
You Keep Me Hanging On, began as a fictional story about an abusive love relationship that took place between a spider, and a fly caught in the spider's web. The spider comes to adore the fly but eventually ends the flies life because of the selfish desire to feed. While the fly could probably escape the web, the fly submits to the spiders ever tender and slow murder. The co-dependency both the spider and fly have is a "True Romance." Backed by the Supremes hit, You Keep Me Hanging On, this Dark comical soundtrack describes my collections inspiration for this Spring/Summer 2016. "You Just Keep Me Hanging On......"
