Everyone’s favourite lifestyle fashion trade show returns for its 8th year
Toques, snowboards and badass kicks? Yup. Mad plaid and distressed denim? Check. Nope, it’s not the après-ski crowd at the most happening fireside lounge at Whistler, but rather the industry go-to for Canadian lifestyle, fashion, and sporting goods retailers: KNOWSHOW. With exhibitors spanning from the likes of global lifestyle heavyweights Burton, Roxy, and Vans to local fashion gems Gentle Fawn, Birds of a Feather and Lifetime Collective, KNOWSHOW has been a destination trade show for the skate-ski-snowboard lifestyle crowd since 2006. This season’s show (which ran from January 15 – 17th at the Vancouver Convention Centre) also had the added bonus of streetwear and graphics artist Don Pendleton, who added his own mark to the venue via an original mosaic-style artwork that he created live throughout the course of the show.
Missed KNOWSHOW this time around? Get in on the action July 29 – 31st 2014, when the trade show returns to the Vancouver Convention Centre. For more information on how to participate in the show—be it as an exhibitor or attendee—check out knowshow.ca.
