Named after Lucky Lady II, a plane that gained international recognition during the World War, LuckyLadyIV (LLIV) certainly is an iconic celebration that lives up to its name. Historically a signature yacht event for the postsecondary community to kick off summer and graduation, LLIV has now been scaled to be even bigger and better, combining music, fashion and art into an annual urban festival.
“My vision is to strengthen Vancouver’s image as a young vibrant city,” says Creative Director Kayode Fatoba. “We achieve this when we showcase urban culture and address the needs of university students, graduates, and young professionals. These needs include networking professionally, discovering Vancouver and its artists, as well as celebrating with the Vancouver community. Lucky Lady IV addresses all of those needs.”
With a number of renowned investors including Golden Brush Art, Millionaire Lifestyle, City of Vancouver and much more, the momentum for the event has grown into a great festivity for the city, with an expectance of 4,000 attendees. From fashion shows to great artists, find out more below on why this year’s LLIV has been gaining a magnitude of attraction and why you need to be there:
