BC Fashion Week Cancelled: Crime Scene and Credit Card Fraud
BC Fashion Week has been cancelled and rumor has it that credit card fraud may be involved. Although no major media outlets have picked up the story, Vancouver's Twitter scene is abuzz with chatter surrounding the #BCFW incident. Tweets started to pop up around 4 p.m. PST about police being on the scene of BC Fashion Week and local designers being ripped off.
Former NowPublic style editor and Vancouver fashion blogger Terri Potratz retweeted some information on exactly what was going on saying,
Twitter users are still trying to get some legitimate information but thus far all that there is to go off of is straight from the community.
Police shut down #BCFW "ppl in tears" no runway, stage is bare, everyone milling around not knowing what to do
BC Fashion week started tweeting again with no mention of the apparent credit card fraud as some shows are still scheduled to run. But the organization can't play the whole ignorance is bliss game as within four minutes of sending out their latest tweet the community responded, and they wanted answers.
@BCFashionWeek noticed u guys r actively tweeting as of 4 mins ago but seem to be pretending this isnt happening. pls provide a statement!
Models from local agencies have pulled their models from the remainder of the shows and designers have already reported that they have been scammed out of $600.
