The setting for Ka-He’s SS18/19 collection launch was absolutely perfect, located in Small Talk event space, a converted warehouse off the bustling Johnston street in Abbotsford. Kacy Heywood, the designer at the helm of Ka-He, showcased her label’s exciting new offerings from ‘Comfortable Possession’.
Drinks were aplenty with complimentary beverages by McPherson Wines, Sailor Jerry, and Bodriggy Brewing Co. Patrons enjoyed the craft beverages while designer Kacy and the models added final touches to outfits and make-up backstage.
Red gladiator sandals & knee high socks dominated the runway, as well as bold emerald green silk and a dreamy floral pattern that captivated patrons. Were it not for the music, one would have been able to hear a pin drop - with the exception of regular gasps of admiration. The energy was excited and as always it was nice to see locals turning out to support one of their own.
While waiting for the models to walk I swapped stories with one patron about our love of Kacy’s work. She told an extraordinarily entertaining story of a crisp white Ka-He dress that she managed to spill butter chicken curry all down the front of. Miraculously the stain came out - she credits this to the exceptionally high-quality fabric that all Ka-He garments are crafted from. Hearing of this and seeing the new designs made me incredibly eager to get my hands on my very own piece of ‘comfortable possession’, something I’m sure to treasure & tell tales about.
