Spend on Trend F/W 2012: Uniquely Vancouver

It was a sunny weekday afternoon when I ambled over to Main St. to check out this season's Spend on Trend.  A 3 day event showcasing the best in SoMa (South Main for non-Vancouverites) fashion, Spend on Trend is always full of fun, friendly people who just happen to be uberly creative to boot!

I've been to Spend on Trend several times now, so I can almost recognize many of the sellers, or at least their lines.  If you've been around the craft fair circuit in Vancouver, then you'll likely be familiar with some of these sellers.  Unlike others though, Spend on Trend has the best location as it's right on Main and just steps away from Main's delightful collection of coffee shops and generally good eats.  There will likely be one happening again in S/S 2013, so keep your eyes peeled out for the next event dates - it's the perfect way to spend an afternoon.

Here are some of my perennial favourites:

Meiku Designs:






A favourite of mine ever since I got to interview Karen, the designer, Meiku is all handmade and inspired with West Coast flare. It's hippie gone modern style and a great addition to any wardrobe.


Adhesif






Known for their quirky remixing of vintage pieces, sometimes Adhesif can be hit or miss for me.  This season's collection of soft knits and girlish dresses has me swooning.  The dress above would look great with tights, oxfords and a wooly cardigan!


Carny Love





Be careful when visiting this lady's booth as the designer is a major saleswoman! I almost walked away with both these items before I begged leave to move on.  I can attest to the comfort of her cotton creations though and that floral sweatshirt number above still has me pondering...


Zula Jewelry




Lastly we have newcomer Zula.  Inspired by nature, Zula is full of delicate silver pieces all of which are handmade and feature real imprints of leaves. Super pretty!
