Time flies when you're having fun! It's hard to beleive we have been enjoying our annual Movement Global Fashion Show in Bowen Island for a decade! We would love for you to join us on Saturday November 5th for refreshments and fun at Artisan Square on Bowen Island. This has been a favourite event filled with local talent every year since it began!
Not going to make it to Bowen? Come visit us in Kits for a Styling Party instead!
This year, we are trying something new for our clients that can't make it to Bowen Island. Come to our store on 4th, where our staff will be available to help style any of your existing Movement wardrobe, or take the time to help find exact colours or styles for any of our new items.
If you just aren't sure how many ways a piece can be worn, or were curious if you could extend your wardrobe by adding a single other skirt, dress or top in a different colour, we will have extra staff on that day to take as much time as you want to really style yourself a new look!
Light refreshments and loads of fun!
Our September winner is Amy Ku! Zen pharmacist, yoga teacher, and all around lovely person Amy loves Movement Global because the simple modular styles make it easy to get dressed in the morning. She also loves that we are hundred mile fashion, locally designed and sewn right in Vancouver BC.
She had this to say on Twitter:
Amy looks amazing above in our chocolate Simple Tights, and navy Margarita Wrap. And equally comfortable and stylish in our Sierra Side Pocket and Vivian Cardigan in palest pink, and New Skinny in charcoal below.
Thanks Amy Ku! It's customer's like you that keep us trying our best to create sustainable clothes that allow you to buy less, keep it longer, and wear it more ways.
We hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend. Thank you so much for your ongoing support!
There is still time to enter October's contest. Click here for instructions and regulations now.
Last month's Give Away winner is the gorgeous Stephanie van Willigenberg. Stephanie is a math professor at UBC, who loves the versatility and endless combinations of our modular bamboo clothes, and especially loves them for travelling! ( a frequent theme with our clothing)
Stephanie gave us 5 stars in her Google Plus review saying:
Movement Global is perfect. I love the comfy bamboo that is also super chic, and always reversible...either the colours or the style - 2 pieces for one! When I gave a high profile presentation at a conference in April I got many compliments on my dress, which came out my bag uncrushed and good to go. Who knew you could do week-long business trips with hand luggage...thanks to the clothing's versatility. Also the shop assistants are very solicitous (but never pushy) and Sigrun in particular is awesome with honest advice!
Thank you Stephanie! Our loyal customers are the reason why we have enjoyed our business so much these past 11 years!
Get in on the action!

Come join us this Thursday September 15, from 5-9pm for a Fashion on Fourth celebration.
We will be breaking out the wine and cheese and fashion, and showing off our huge new store re-do! We had a complete store makeover done by Jessica Elliot in early September to energize our Vancouver shop, and make it easier to showcase all of our modular styles.
We have had so many positive comments about our new look, and all of our staff love it too!
If you have ever tried to run a store with all jersey/soft clothing then you know it's so easy to get stuck in a world of stacked folded piles! Jessica did an amazing job getting our clothes out of piles, and onto hangers and displayed so that our customers can really see and find our clothes.
Come out and celebrate with us, and check out our new look!
It's hard to believe! It's been 2 years since we opened our doors in one of our favourite neighbourhoods in Kitsilano Vancouver.
Come celebrate with us!
We are having a party at our store on 4th avenue, this Saturday August 20th from 1-7 pm, and we want you to come join us :)
Wine and cheese: what's a party without a little refreshment? We will be hosting with a glass of vino, and some of our favourite cheeses. Non alcoholic beverages will also be available.
Amazing raffles and prizes: there will be hundreds of dollars in in-store credits to go towards a purchase of your choice.

We hope to see you there!
