Taking inspiration from the philosophy that all things carry spirit and stories, Cassie Dee created aniimiism, a fashion focused expression of that idea.
For Fall Winter 2016 the aniimiism collection pushes into new territory with the most eye-catching collection yet. Spotlight worthy fabrications include a shimmer and shine 80s inspired chiffon with a hint of transparency, a punk inspired multi colored boucle and an accordion pleated pleather. Exaggerated and covered up, the long line silhouettes are designed to have a grunge-y, covert seductiveness.
Cassie started designing under her own name after graduating from the Helen Lefeaux School of Fashion in Vancouver Canada. She grew up in Calgary, Alberta and moved to Vancouver full time after fashion school. She was selected in the inaugural year of the Mercedes Benz StartUp competition to present at Toronto Fashion Week (WMCFW). Cassie’s designs have appeared in many publications including Vogue and she was on one season of Amercia’s Next Top Model as a designer to the competing models. This will be aniimiism’s 3rd season presenting at Vancouver Fashion Week!
