Lauren Clark and Lyndsey Chow
Lauren Clark and Lyndsey Chow are the founders of Hey Jude, a design-inspired vintage clothing shop that specializes in visually contemporary pieces that have been hand-picked and curated into seasonal collections. With a high emphasis on natural fibers, clean cuts and cohesiveness, each collection is curated by Lauren and Lyndsey from their travels. The boutique's goal is to present a thoughtful, well-edited collection of upcycled clothing that inspires the wearer to make sustainable choices in how they shop.
Chloe Popove is the owner and founder of My Modern Closet, an online consignment store working to create a longer life for women's clothes. She believes it's possibly to love your wardrobe and still be the eco-friendly, patriarchy-smashing, stylish women that you are.
Elim Chu is a freelance Fashion Stylist based in Vancouver, BC. When she isn't obsessing about the details on a photo set or defining brand style for local companies, she is helping women in choosing clothing they feel their best in.
Before starting her own business, she was lululemon's first ever in-house Stylist. It was there that she observed the power and effect clothing had on people. After a friend asked for wardrobe help, Elim discovered her niche in offering styling services that tuned in on how someone wanted to feel and tuned out on trends.
