                                     Inspired by the fashion markets of East London, Portobello West
                                     occurs the last Sunday of every month and is nearing its first
                                     anniversary. Director Carlie Smith keeps the market fresh by ro-

                                     jewellers are permitted) and introducing new designers each

                                     Smith is instituting: she’s also hired performers to entertain
                                     outside when weather permits, and organized a shuttle from
                                     the nearby SkyTrain station for easy transport. And watch out

                                     with the Graduate Award, an initiative to help young designers
                                     develop and launch their inaugural line. The four finalists this
                                     year include Ora Designs (Helen Lefeaux), Shaina Webb Designs
                                     (Art Institute), Bad Apple Fashions and Freja Designs (both from
                                     Kwantlen). The winner will be announced at the market on Aug.
                                     26, the same day that marks the one-year birthday of Vancou-
                                     ver’s favourite local shopping destination.

HELEN LEFEAUX SCHOOL
It’s always interesting to see designers come out
with conceptual clothing designs that are compel-
ling and innovative on the runway, but at the end
of the show it always comes down to one point for
me: What is actually wearable?

The 25 students graduating from Helen Lefeaux
School of Fashion Design had to demonstrate
their abilities with collections containing only
three pieces. I was most impressed with Figtree by
Alison Chernesky, in which she toyed with earth
tones, high-waisted pants and a leather cowl
thrown in for good measure. Tia Oliver’s collection
was inspired by rich Victorian fabrics, and I was
glad to see she retained those refined elements
in her designs. And one dress I would have worn
                                                                                                          CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT:

Other notables include the ’50s-inspired line by

With alumni like Chloe Angus, Glencora Twigg and

ing these new designers emerge on the Vancouver
scene. Best of luck to the 2007 graduates!

                                                       house at the Sheraton Ballroom on July 12.

                                                       Featuring designs from Obakki, Hunt & Gather, Urbanity, Lark, American Apparel and
                                                       Zara, among others, the class of 15 formed OneOneSeven Productions and the Inter-
                                                       twine show was their debut production.

                                                       The primary theme of the show was the fusion between nature and machine, with
                                                       stark metallics initially dominating the runway merging into soft organic whites, fol-
                                                       lowed by a burst of colour and energy.

                                                       With net proceeds benefiting the World Wildlife Fund, the show focused fashion’s eye
                                                       on the state of our environment by focusing vision on the past, present and future of
                                                       the world.

                                                       A silent auction with plenty of goodies and GCs to bid on was a great distraction
                                                       before the show commenced.

  It’s nice to see an accessories store cater to both
  men and women, with lines like Toodlebunny
  Designs, Frug, Dotted Loop, Matt and Nat, Brave
  Leather, Goorin Brothers Hats, and Hanky Panky
  Panties adorning both sexes.

         tunning 19-year-old Barbados R&B beauty Rihanna



S        has already sold 5.4 million albums, released five No. 1
         singles, worked with megastars (Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake,
         Timbaland) and insured her legs for $1 million US. She’s
also developed a new bad-girl demeanor, which comes complete
with scandalous, fetishy outfits, sexy videos and diva behaviour.

Rihanna’s fittingly-titled new third record, Good Girl Gone Bad,
has been dominating the charts with the prowess of its catchy first
single “Umbrella,” which features a guest spot by Jay-Z, who dis-
covered the singer and put her out on his Def Jam label. The record
has also ushered in a naughtier image for the fresh-faced singer,
who was first introduced to us as a soft island beauty with songs
such as last summer’s inescapable dancehall smash “S.O.S.” and
club classic “Pon De Replay.”

Now Rihanna has traded in her ballads and tropical dresses for
barely-there latex booty shorts, fishnet stockings and, sometimes,
nothing but body paint, such as in the new video for “Umbrella.”

“This record [Good Girl Gone Bad], I basically took the attitude
of the bad girl and I really got rebellious and just did everything
the way I wanted to do it,” she explains. “I didn’t want to listen to   artist and a very talented person,” she says. “Jay-Z, he is such a    to the irritation of her neighbours, who complained about her loud
