Eliza Faulkner: Local Designer

Victoria Fashion Blog

Yesterday the island secret had the opportunity to hang out with local designer, Eliza Faulkner, in her beautiful studio in our hometown of Duncan, BC. On the top floor a lovely old brick building, her studio was filled with pieces from past collections, rich fabrics for the upcoming Spring season and lovely design sketches.

Eliza had always dreamt about becoming a fashion designer and started creating and sewing clothing at a young age. She was accepted into the prestigious Central St. Martin’s College of Art and Design in London, England where she spent 5 years studying and gaining experience through working in various London studios. Her designs are sporty, chic and urban and she is inspired by her time living in London as well as the ease of dressing on the west coast of Canada. 

Eliza currently manages the Island Style column of the Cowichan News Leader where we are excited to be featured as January's style of the month! 











Keep your eyes out for Eliza Faulkner’s Spring 2013 collection in boutiques and shops scattered throughout Vancouver Island and Vancouver. We know we're excited!!

To check out Eliza's collections or to get in touch with her, visit www.elizafaulkner.com.

Love,
Carly and Stacie
