She resumes comfortable yet structured silhouettes from her previous FW 2018 collection, and moves towards a clean, white and grey monochromatic colour palette. Inspired by an era, Lyndsey remixes wardrobe staples from her 20s with new materials.

Raised in a creative family, Lyndsey has always had a keen interest in music, fashion, and art. She has also always had an inherent practicality, and obtained a Bachelor of Business in Vancouver, but after six months living and studying in Berlin her interest in the arts resurfaced.
The Vancouver-based designer graduated in the study of fashion design at John Casablancas Institute in September 2017, and has since been creating and promoting her line through her Instagram page and events, like Vancouver Fashion Week.
Lyndsey believes that fashion is a form of expression that is easily accessible to any individual. It is also an art that requires both logic and practicality.
PHASED. by LJ aims to provide adventurous women with new perspectives and a raw, unassuming sense of beauty. At the end of the day, it is the design of a garment that helps you express your personality and charm.
