Lisa Jayne Dann, a designer from Leeds, UK, wowed the crowd with her edgy, yet sophisticated clothing designs at Vancouver Fashion Week this past Sunday evening.

Accompanied by a mysterious, tribal trance mix, Dann’s designs were showcased with a raw, jungle feel contrasted with a softer, more feminine side. Bright peacock prints were featured on flowy pantsuits and dresses. Almost all of the animal prints were matched with hippie leather bags and satchels. A sheer pink, lace halter one piece with an animal print underlay brought out the young and flirty nature in a girl.

Other pieces, such as the red bandage playsuit, bared some skin with the tasteful yet sexy side cut-outs. The playful girl graduated into a more mature, and independent woman.

A couple of her faux leather pieces made a grand appearance near the end of the show. By incorporating femininity with edge, the black leather baby-doll dress was definitely a creative twist. Staying true to the show's title, the vibrance and variety of the pieces did indeed keep the audience’s “Eyes Wide Open.”
