We Are Canadians, Too! Cultural Fabrics

Cultural Fabrics

Co-Presented by Vancouver Fashion Week

Fashion is synonymous to culture, and both are always growing and evolving. Few industries other than fashion are as closely tied to the fast paced developments of contemporary culture, including the newest and hottest trend: Fusion.

From the Indigenous and First Peoples of Canada to first generation immigrants and everyone in between, all of us have a story to tell. What story could be more intimate than a designer’s own heritage, as told through their fashion? Better look sharp, Canada – it’s time to showcase your roots like never before!

The first time in a new place is always a fresh and unique experience – all the more so when faced with a new land to call “home”. Whether you’ve lived in Canada all your life or you’re a recent immigrant, there’s no shortage of beautiful sights to be inspired by.

Re-discover Canada through the camera lens of first-generation Canadian Todd Ye – fall in love all over again with the beauty of Canada!

Photographer, Journalist, and Writer Todd Yi Tao Ye moved to Canada from China in 2001. Twelve select photographs from Ye’s portfolio share his unforgettable journey of becoming Canadian. “My Canadian Living” depicts those moments that words can’t describe but emotions can easily relate. Each of the twelve moments shows the profound love for his new homeland – Canada.
