BC Fashion Week – Spring/Summer 2010 – Generation Next 

Flora & Fauna designer Pauline Siu opted out of York University’s sociology program to study fashion design at Ryerson and hasn’t looked back since.

A career in mass garment production opened her eyes to the harsh realities of the business (i.e., off-shore factory conditions and child labour). So when it came to designing her own line she wanted to do things “the right way.”

By using sustainable fabrics and ethical, local production methods, Sui endeavours to give back to the environment as much as she takes.
