"This is the second year for Vancouver Alternative Fashion founded by Kat Ferneyhough and Kat Kozak, two talented women from Toronto, who recently moved to Vancouver.  They have figured out that in Vancouver, people go to fashion shows to be entertained or to be seen, unlike Montreal and Toronto, where the main audiences are buyers and media.  Their interesting mix of music, of alternative fashion and art struck the right note, this year...Overall a really enjoyable and entertaining show. Look forward to next year."

- Vivienne Taylor, VALT 2013 Review for Trend Fashion Marketing & Forecasting




"For us, VALT is a thrilling time for us to challenge our creative limits, experiment with different methods of presentation, and envision how Mitmunk can grow as a business. We really value this opportunity, as well as the friendships and connections we’ve made with other artists and professionals in Vancouver."
