Comme Des Garcons...Another Blogger Adventure!

Yesterday morning I woke up bright and early to wait in line for the release of the Comme Des Garcons and H & M collaboration. I met with Miranda of StyleByFire and we took turns waiting in line. While we were waiting, we chatted with Judy Ho (VCC Coordinator of Design) and VCC design instructor Lisa Gellert. We discussed the fashion scene in Vancouver and the beauty of H & M Designer Collaborations. It's great to have access to high fashion at affordable prices.

Overall, I was rather disappointed with the collection. I was glad that I tried everything on, because the cut of all of the clothes made me look really boxy. I understand that her design aesthetic is very androgynous but the cuts are not very frame flattering. Nevertheless, people were buying pieces left right and centre! In the end, I didn't end up buying anything but I had a great time chatting with everyone in line and seeing everyone go crazy! I have posted the pictures in the order they were taken. You can see how dark it is with the first photo, 6:45 to be exact! What did you think of the collection? Did you buy anything?
