A taste of local talent

Hello blogger world.
Meet the newest addition to the swfds! My name is Katherine and I love fashion. Every week you can expect to be immersed into the swfds's world of DIY. Enjoy a variety of projects, local talent, and fashion opinions. This week I've been learning about local designers - quite a few have caught my interest. We have a lot of talent in Vancouver... here's a taste!
