We look forward to future collaborations with fellow designers and artists offering unique individual perspectives.
THE ART OF COLLABORATION
FRIDA X CAM PATEY
Inspired by illusions; creating colours that diffuse without a beginning nor end.
Recycled jasper pendant accented by multi shades of purple, pink and grey pearls. A titanium-knitted wire allows for a high fluted collar encasing the neck in a delicate web of metal.

REFLECTIONS OF POWERFUL WOMEN
For Cam, master hair stylist, this image references Mary, Queen of Scots. Formidable white hair is eerily striking. Rich in texture and drama, the image captures both the tragedy and romance of her reign.

This amazing inaugural event brought together MacPhee Centre for Creative Learning with co-creators Carrie Lamb, owner and designer of FRIDA; Nancy Smithers, owner of Nova Scotia Organics; and Vlad Snytkin, prominent local fashion designer and performer, for a unique fundraiser celebrating and shining light on Nova Scotia’s incredibly talented artists and designers.

FRIDA X MARIE WEBB
For an interesting 'EDGE' on a typical runway show, Carrie Lamb styled Marie Webb’s (Lemonade Stand Designs) textile designs with pieces from Carrie’s own eclectic wardrobe and fabulous FRIDA jewels! Marie's generous spirit and contagious cheerful outlook express a unique vision of love, joyfulness and unconditional positivity, through an eccentric use of vibrant colour.
Clothing and jewellery are our tools of communication to embrace style and individuality.
FRIDA X VLAD SNYTKIN
Vlad Snytkin designed a stellar fashion collection, inspired by the interplay of silver and gold used in the FRIDA signature collection, SHIELD™. Metallic Warriors, accessorized with FRIDA neck sculptures filled with a profusion of vintage crystals, pearls and semi-precious stones, were stunning on the runway. A perfect combination of structural elements!
