INTERVIEW WITH STEVIE CROWNE

As a designer, Stevie looks and acknowledges the current trends to create new twists at the warpaint studio.

"War Paint' is all about being free, accepting, and daring to go your own way. It was created based upon the metaphor 'wear your bravery stripes and be proud of who you are'."

Stevie is very careful not to look too closely at many fashion trends or analyze them heavily. His personal take on the trends include lots of coloured lace, matching embellishments, leather, appliqué, and patchwork - with a loud emphasis on pins, spray paint, and anything else he can wreck havoc with!

His borderline addiction creating customized pieces for clients led Stevie to work with a manager agent at Charles Stewart International Modelling. He thoroughly enjoys the customizing process and was most recently asked to create a dusty wind jacket with the crown logo with matching appliqués studs and biker leather.

Within every fashion event, Stevie promotes a 'War Paint attitude' for the models when walking the runway or during photo-shoots. He is proud to say that the War Paint collection will be showcased at SFW on May 8th during the second set of shows of the night.

Being his main goal to help people in general and show them healthy alternatives to live, Eco Fashion Week was a perfect fit for Stevie to showcase his designs in 2013. Describing his showcase at Eco fashion week as "a pure spiritual experience", Stevie confirmed the importance of his work benefiting the environment while also creating art and fashion. 

Stevie is also working on a new website 'BanditFresh' with good friend Sara Alexandre, who he met during his education at Blanche Macdonald in Vancouver. The lifestyle based collection Alexandre Crowne is still in the early productions and is expected to launch in 2015.

NOE BERNACELLI AT VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK FW14 - PHOTOGRAPHY BY LUCAS DAVID MORGAN

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Noe Bernacelli at both Vancouver Fashion Week SS14 and FW14 showcases. It was amazing getting to know Noe and his family, who embody nothing but kindness, love, and support for his creative work.

For FW14, Noe's haute couture collection 'La Forêt-Noire' expressed a more darker collection than his previous works - and was once again an absolute standout of the event!

IPEK TOHUMCU AT VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK FW14 - PHOTOGRAPHY BY LUCAS DAVID MORGAN

Ipek Tohumcu's infatuation for the arts was surely prevalent during her runway show. I admire her routine of using various features including painting, colour, and architecture to broaden her creative vision.

GABRIEL LAGE AT VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK - PHOTOGRAPHY BY LUCAS DAVID MORGAN

From Argentina to Vancouver, Gabriel Lage was overjoyed with compliments after his show; VFW describing his FW14 showcase as “a breath-taking, jaw-dropping collection”. It was great to see Gabriel and his manager Mariano Prato enjoying their time in Vancouver, and even having coffee in Gastown like locals! I recently received a nice note from Gabriel and Mariano expressing their gratitude and how they are very thankful to have met so many lovely people during fashion week. Can't wait to have them back in Vancouver; connecting new waves of fashion!
