Western Canada Fashion Week started on Thursday and here are some of the highlights from the past two days:
The adorable Janis from Dress Me Dearly in a charming little outfit from Divine Decadence
One to watch: Arlee Stewart, an up-and-coming designer and recent grad of Marvel College who designed this gorgeous tweed dress.
D.J.'s extraordinaire from Girls Club spinning beats backstage
Whyte Avenue Showcase
My faves from Mars and Venus and Oak + Fort
A beautiful, vibrant fall dress from one of my fabulous sponsors, Bamboo Ballroom : )
Lance Chung and Brittanee Tomkow, last season's Emerging Stylist Contest winners showed off their sophisticated creations. They could only use pieces they found at Goodwill, a thrift store. Every thing you see styled is second-hand.
Cutie patooties Lance and Brittanee. They did a remarkable job!
Last season's Emerging Designer Competition winner Andrea De Ocampo presented the audience with her very first collection. I was impressed with her clothing, to say the least! This was my favorite design of hers. I'm a sucker for faux fur and clean lines.
Oh, and did I mention Andrea is only SEVENTEEN?? Not bad for a high schooler! When I was 17 I sewed through my finger in Home Economics class and had to go to the medi-clinic to get a tetanus shot! Her fashion designing future certainly seems brighter than mine did at her age! FYI: That was the same year I sewed seams vertically through the middle of a shirt, front and back instead of the sides.
One of my favorite parts of Fashion Week? Getting to hang out with these peeps for 8 days! Bloggers! L-R Kassandra, Andrew, Andrea, Vickie, Jenna, Mark + Mathew, Janis and me!
I hope you're all enjoying your weekend!
