"Vancouver is a metropolitan city is like no other place in the world," says founder Jamal Abdourahman. "Here we have a unique community of sophisticated, intelligent and artistic people. They know and understand quality, and have an appetite and appreciation for international design. The first decade for VFW was spent building up international presence and exposure. After 10 years of growing global media coverage, we have over 50 world-wide media partnerships, and over 20 international designers exhibiting. We are living the dream that we envisioned years ago for VFW to be part of an international fashion destination!"
