TOM* WK-Christopher Bates Runway Show-Fri.,Feb.27th,2015@The Carlu

By Bill Kwan

Menswear designer Christopher Bates showcased his latest creation during TOM* Week at The Carlu.
Once you see the lipstick kissed collar on the runway, you know you’re watching a Christopher Bates collection.
Vancouver-born, men’s fashion designer deals in details. Whether it’s denim, expert stitching, or strategically placed colours, Bates doesn’t create seasonal trends. He designs well-made garments for the urban male.
Very urban, modern, contemporary, tailored collection and detailed, Bate’s models walked out wearing traditional menswear, tuxedo, jeans, dress pants and dress shirts. Bates will be featuring his runway show during The Master Card Fashion Week March 2015 and I’m sure he’ll be back in town for year 3 of TOM*.
