OCTOBER’S FEATURED DESIGNERS ~adhesif, carny love, flora & fauna, nicole bridger~

All throughout October, receive 50% off on Diane Kennedy’s gorgeous bamboo plus size line, sizes XL-3X.http://www.dianekennedy.ca/

And…the fall lines are in full swing here!

ADHESIF: Gorgeous, one of a kind upcycled wool sweaters and bubble dresses, made from high quality vintage tweed in Vancouver. Recently on the front page of the Vancouver Sun, the dress pictured is one of a kind and it is currently available at Planet Claire!  http://www.vancouversun.com/life/Gone+fleece+Gore/2017573/story.html


CARNY LOVE : The fall 09 line is inspired by the old world carnivale tarot card readers. The hanged man screenprint adorns the “Magician’s Coat” and sports a powder-coated hangman zipper pull.                                                                                                  http://carnylove.com/

FLORA & FAUNA: Each season, designer Pauline Siu chooses two critters or creatures and donates a portion of sales to Critter Care. This season it’s bears and bumble bees! Recently showcased at BC Fashion Week, my favourites from the fall line is the cozy “Panda Bear” sweater with thumbholes, and the “Busy Bee” hooded tunic with a honeycomb screen-print.http://www.floraandfauna.ca/

NICOLE BRIDGER: This is the first season Planet Claire has carried Nicole Bridger’s eco-conscious, beautifully draped, exquisite designs, although Nicole has been movin’ and shakin’ in the fashion industry for years. Nicole was born and raised in Vancouver, and received her BAA in fashion design from Ryerson University in Toronto. While interning at Vivienne Westwood in London, UK, she learned the art of sculpting fabric and returned with an understanding of doing more than just making clothes. Bridger came back to Vancouver looking to learn some of the business side of things and paired up with the owner of Lululemon Athletica to co-create Oqoqo, a casual eco clothing line. She was then ready to put her design and business sides together to create her own label of socially conscious contemporary women’s wear, Nicole Bridger.                                                     http://www.nicolebridger.com/

Come check out these beautiful, here-while-they-last pieces, and support small business and your local designers!! XOXO Claire
