GHOST GiRL GOODS: Then and Now - a fashion show timeline! [Part 1]

This long blog post is full of photos and fun info! I hope you will enjoy the whole journey through this timeline.

This is part 1 of a multi part series. Part 1 includes my first fashion shows up until the end of 2017, the year GHOST GiRL GOODS was launched!

GHOST GiRL GOODS was officially launched in 2017, but actually was born September 2014! From 2014 to 2017, I was coming up with my brand's concepts, styles, and overall designs. Some people may think these things take just a day, month or week. But it takes years to really put things together.

For me, I have really come a long way. Along my journey, I had many, MANY different ideas of what I wanted to make and what sort of brand I wanted. In 2014, after finishing my first college program, going to Japan for the first time, and starting a full time job as a pattern drafter, I then sparked my idea for GHOST GiRL GOODS.

Let's begin our journey! (*Please note: I tried to include credits to anyone who I still have the information for. But all credits go to the respective photographers, make up artists, and models who were included in this to help make it possible!)


Two fashion shows I did before GHOST GiRL was born!! These were during my Fashion Techniques and Design (my first college program) days! These are a lot more costume like and "for fun". BUT Definitely a great part of the process! Before GHOST GiRL GOODS, I thought I would go under the name Locobu, which was essentially just a shortened version of a username I used everywhere (lolacolabunny).

Youth Day Fashion Show - July 21st 2013


WOW! Haha~! I got an email from my school about this and then sent in my application and got in. It was held in Dundas Square (for those who don't know, that's like the Time Square of Toronto.)

Runway For Research: Candyland Fashion Show - November 13th 2013

A fundraiser fashion show, where I created a candy themed collection!! Some garments use real candy on it (coated with a seal of course). It was a lot of fun making the garments~! There is licorice, chocolate caramel, gummy bears, colourful lollipop, and bon bon candy!

There was a "challenge" for this event, which was whoever sells the most tickets wins a location photo shoot. Well, guess who that winner was!! (Me and one other person who did not show up for the photo shoot LOL) It was a really fun photo shoot at a beautiful winery!
