Just when it seemed as if the posh and premium design aesthetic reigned supreme in Vancity, the good fellas over at Stee Supply and GO Clothing devised an entrepreneurial attack with an underground lineup. The Go Stee Day! event was a collaboration of up-and-coming local brands amongst an intimate gathering of attendees. Covered with artistic prowess and dope kicks, the Six Hundred Four sneaker boutique in Gastown was soon filled with excited faces.
Hosted by the fashion socialite Rich Abarquez [above] the night began with grace as he grabbed a mic and started the introduction. The crowd quieted itself as Rich explained how to win over $800 in giveaways as well as revealing the TwelveWest club location where the GSD after party would be held. Each designer was prepped, every model was dressed to the tee, and each audience member anxious to experience something fresh and new- the lights were soon dimmed and the show was underway.
Live Performance by Tyler Skyy
As the show hit intermission, recording artist Tyler Skyy came through to drop a couple of tracks for the GSD audience. A quick breath of fresh air turned into a network party on the corner of Cambie St. that night. A few familiar faces posed for Ryan’s camera, and the usual handshakes and hugs were gifted amongst the men and women in attendance. This was the prototype. This was the first underground show for Stee and GO Clothing, and halfway through, it continued to be quite the success. A few shouts from the doorway and everyone huddled back into the Six Hundred Four shop for the remainder of GO Stee Day!.
As the Stee Supply brand walked down the runway, the event had come to a close. The first chapter of GO Stee Day! was complete and had turned out to be one hell of a time. Big ups to Stee Supply, GO Clothing, Six Hundred Four, and all the designers, models, and attendees. Without y’all, each of us could not have been a part of such a great event Until next time Vancity…
