Has anyone seen any clothing design that's a little more experimental / unusual ? In either fabric or the way it's cut

I visited the FashionHigh website on Vancouver designers
A lot of the work is like ordinary clothes... not saying it's bad though

Even high-end brands like Burberry can create some pretty innovative pieces...

If possible, I'm curious about local furniture / industrial design too...

Anything that's MADE IN VANCOUVER at least

There were some things at the open studios on the East Side Culture Crawl, esp furniture. Judson Beaumont is always interesting at 1000 Parker, lots of other good studios there too. Web site has links to lots of artisans/artists.

Portobello Market one Sunday a month might have something. There were some T-shirts with very subtle Canadian images like an outline of Canada in green plaid. The shirts were at the ShopCocoon coop on Main too.

Thanks Chalice

I missed the Culture Crawl this year due to so much schoolwork
I went last year --I don't remember any furniture in the Parker St. area though
I guess it's growing more

I've been seeing some really cool industrial design from Emily Carr Arts Institute through blogs lately. Tables, shoes, etc. Really interesting ideas. I hope a few will stay in Van to work

Check the web site for the crawl, in the furniture section. There's a lot more there than I managed to get to, so I was surprised too.

about molo

molo, based in Vancouver, Canada, is a design studio dedicated to materials research and an exploration of space making. As a design and manufacturing company, molo creates and distributes unique and innovative products to clients around the world. The design of molo products grows from Forsythe + MacAllen’s architectural explorations, inspired by the idea that smaller tactile objects and elements can have a real potency in the physical experience of a space. molo’s float tea lantern and paper softwall exemplify ideas of intimate, temporal space making and the original thinking behind all molo products. float glassware and the soft line of products in particular have received numerous international awards, and molo’s softwall has been acquired into the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, in New York.

I visited Roden Gray yesterday and the staff is super friendly. Nice that somebody is carrying CDG fragrance again. I was informed that the shop is owned by the previous buyer from Richard Kidd. Also they will be getting in Helmut Lang suits in the fall. No women's, but many small mens styles that women could wear. I'll definitely be checkin in on them again.
