VALT2016 – 5 Year Anniversary! Exclusive interview with Kat Kozak and Kat Ferneyhough

Miroir: What inspired VALT?

Kat Ferneyhough: There are several alternative fashion events occurring around the globe, and upon deciding to move to the west coast, we found it surprising that a city as creative and unique as Vancouver didn’t already have one.

Rachel Kerby couture photoshoot with Nina Pak

It’s always a pleasure to shoot with Nina because it’s a very inspiring process, and I can see myself grow as an artist. I still remember the first few times we shot together, I would stay up all night to plan looks in my head and look at different photos online to get ideas. I know I have grown because in the more recent shoots with Nina I can plan as I go and get inspired while at the shoot.— Rachel Kerby
