On September 15, I attended the Malene Grotian Fashion Show as part of FMA Fashion Week in Vancouver. The show was eye catching, and moving with models showing off the latest designs, with moving visuals in the background and music to make this show spectacular.
Malene has been dressing some of Vancouver’s most notable talent. Inspired by timeless, unique, European style, all designs are sophisticated and created with femininity and elegance in mind. The collections offer a variety of evening wear, professional wear and custom designs. All pieces are designed with unexpected details to create a nouveau classic expression and are made locally in Vancouver B.C. Canada.
Born and raised in Denmark, Malene Grotrian graduated in 2004 from the Danish design school, Teko Center Denmark. After furthering her design and fine art studies in Italy, Malene re-located to Canada. For over four years, Malene worked with leading Canadian designers honing in on her skills and love for detailed tailored designs and couture fashion. It was during this time that she discovered her true passion for women’s evening wear and her signature bustier, these experiences inspired the inception of the Malene Grotrian label.
