Finding her second wind.
Myriam Laroche, founder of Vancouver’s Eco Fashion Week, gravitated towards the world of fashion from the very beginning of her career. It was when she moved to Vancouver that she found a way to do things differently in a saturated high-speed industry. This reorientation changed her vision of the industry and led her to have a fresh and clear outlook on herself. It gave her the possibility of changing things with complete authenticity.
Her philosophy: giving clothes a second life and inspiring people to do the same, without compromising on style.
Her ideal frames: Eco-friendly, just like our Sea2See glasses.
As a multidisciplinary artist, Yacari celebrates the art of living through the clothes she creates. Her vision of design is anchored in durability, and takes a step away from fast fashion.
She finds inspiration in nature, in fabrics, and in second-hand items, taking the time to design pieces that will stand the test of time.
Her philosophy: allowing people to define their own sense of well-being, while helping them to reduce their environmental footprint. Her ideal frames: Designs made with durability in mind.
