VFW Opening Gala at Birks

I was recently invited to photograph R&U Styles' launch at Vancouver Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2009 Collection. Check out their website at:

A little bit about the company…It was inaugurated in 2006 by brothers Reuben and Levi Uwi, with Umberto Sadaka. The company's line currently has a primary focus of printed or embroidered T's and hoodies. For more info, take a boo at their website.

This post will be part of a series of 3 (well 4, if you count the sneak peek…) posts from the gala, backstage and actual company launch that happened a few weeks back.

First up was the gala opening at Birks, which is a super posh jewelery store. Essentially it was a schmooze fest for the all the designers and models. What else can I say about that?

Really interesting experience to get my feet wet in fashion photography…hopefully the photos will speak for themselves. Enjoy!

Okay…everyone knows the spiel about copyright, but I do have to mention it here. Please do not copy or reproduce any of these images without written permission from myself and RnU Styles. Anyhow, stealing is bad…'nuff said.

The masterminds behind the operation from left to right…Levi Uwi, Umberto Sadaka, (their friend) and Reuben Uwi.

This was my favourite photo from the entire night. Was waiting for the man to stand still long enough to take this. It was a longish wait…but well worth it to capture the lettering on the back.
