KnowShow SS12 lifestyle and fashion trade show at Vancouver Convention Centre West from August 17 to 18, 2011.

I browsed the KnowShow and really dug the Miami Vice themed displays and some of the custom artwork.

I don't think I've ever been to a trade show before so I tried to soak in things browsing all the vendors.

Many of the brands and distributors personally introduced and showed their upcoming product lines to vendors making orders.

I ran into the lovely Queenie Tang at the Premium Collective Showroom booth, decked out in some trendy gear.

I walked past the sessions, observing their serious faces, trying to decide what to order.

The show previewed the spring collection of clothing and wear for vendors and shop owners anticipating the new clothing lines.

There was a random fake pool and beach area where I enjoyed a drink and fell off my chair.

The convention centre, which I love, offered too much of a grey vibe and colour with all the concrete and roof amidst so many creative items on display.

I'm a little ignorant about a lot of clothing and consumer brands so I took it easy observing. The custom made booths really stood out.

I remarked to others I wished I could have gone shopping at the show with all my favourite brands in one place.

I think the shoes were the most eye catching, prominent goods on display. They were easily displayed with minimal set up and effort.

Most of the gear is only available at special surf, skate, alternative, and athletics shops. Seeing it all in once convenient location was a change of pace.

I loved the indie vibe and massive bookshelf of free independent magazines and publications outside in the lobby.

Sometimes I forget what a vibrant, passionate, design and consumer goods community there is in the city.
