The EVAN DUCHARME team produces a selection of high-concept separates, tailoring, and eveningwear for the customer who demands authenticity in every aspect of their life.
In 2012, DUCHARME's graduate collection, CREPUSCULE, garnered attention and praise from press and public through his winning of the "Fashion's Night Out Vancouver" Design Competition.
He followed up this win by presenting his debut F|W 2013 collection, BELLADONNA, at Eco Fashion Week Vancouver to stellar reviews.
For the S|S 2014 season, DUCHARME participated in The 68 Pound Challenge, in which a designer takes 68 pounds of discarded textiles from Value Village to create a high-end collection. 68 pounds was the amount of textile waste per person in North America annually, which has increased to 81 pounds since Ducharme's participation in the challenge.
F|W 2014 brought about the designer's first solo presentation. "ICONOCLAST" was presented at East Van Studios to a select group of fashion press, public, & clients. Pieces from ICONOCLAST were custom-made for Actress LANA PARRILLA, which were worn to the TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL and the Season 4 premiere of ABC's "ONCE UPON A TIME".
For S|S 2015, DUCHARME returned to the Eco Fashion Week runway with the presentation of SAUDADE. The collection stood out in the minds of influencers such as Fashion Magazine editor Joy Pecknold, who featured the brand in the May 2015 issue. Looks from this collection were worn at the CANNES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL by Actress MOMONA KOMOGATA.
In April 2016, the EVAN DUCHARME™ team mounted their second solo presentation at Vancouver's SPACE Gallery. The designer's most personal offering to date, ORIGIN explores the history and culture of the Metis People in Canada through the lense of the designer's personal experience as an Indigenous person in modern Canadian society. Ducharme later created a custom look from ORIGIN for Actress ROSEANNE SUPERNAULT for the CANNES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL.
The designer was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada; and raised in the lakeside Metis community of St. Ambroise. Many of his inspirations and philosophy in design derive from its naturally diverse surroundings and his Metis ancestry.
