What is VANCOUVER ALTERNATIVE ARTS & FASHION WEEK (VALT)?

VALT is run by SEAMS – the Style, Entertainment, Art & Media Society of Vancouver. This not-for-profit organization focuses on developing local arts programming that assists emerging and fringe artists of every medium and media in the province of BC, while fostering a community of culture appreciation.

VALT’s mission is to provide an alternative to the commercial fashion and gallery experience, to celebrate and promote the creativity of local unrecognized artists and designers, and to nurture and promote the arts and fashion culture of Vancouver itself. Our core market for VALT is the individual who appreciates the arts and fashion in particular, and is interested in a more immersive, cultural experience than the typical commercial offerings in the fashion and arts experiences.
 

2015 themes and designers

There were 3 themes in 2015.

1.TERRESTRIA
Lush forests, arid deserts, tropical flora, vast tundras, epic mountains, spacious valleys, tectonic plates and volcanic eruptions. Terrestria is slow to change, but complex and deeply interconnected. It is bound by gravity but has created creatures that are not. It is harsh one moment, loving the next, but in the end, Terrestria is home.
2.CELESTIA
Clear blue skies, star sprinkled nights, storms, thunder, lighting, wind, rain, the vacuum of space, nebulae, suns and black holes. Celestia is the unknown heights to which we ever aspire. It is a perpetual mystery, but without Celestia, we would have no dreams for more.
3.AQUATICA
Cerulean waters, glass-still lakes, ponds full of lotus flowers, oceans as far as the eye can see, violent tsunamis and impossibly dark depths. It is the magical and the terrifying. Aquatica is the unfathomable adventure that lurks just a little too close for comfort.

The spectacular designers are here the below.

I am a vegetable expert. I have a certification of Vegetable Sommelier. I am looking for vegetables and fruit which I do not know. That is why I am in Vancouver now. If you have any questions about produce, please contact me.

Love to hear from you!
