Tuesday Night WCFW

Last night I attended Day 6 of Western Canada Fashion Week and while creating this post I strongly felt I needed to give credit where credit is due right from the start, which is why I'm highlighting Malorie Urbanovitch's Spring/Summer 2012 collection first. I was lucky enough to view this Edmonton-based designer's stunning line from the front row and it was flawless.

I mean, look at these clothes! The high-quality fabric, the dynamic colors mixed with neutrals, the structured design and streamlined aesthetic literally took my breath away.

Did I mention this designer is only 24??

Congratulations to Malorie for executing such a strikingly chic (and wearable) collection!

Another young designer who impressed me last night was 23 year-old Janessa Ott with her Obsidian line. She featured vintage-inspired coats and dresses that reminded me of elegant and luxurious fashion from the '30's and '40's. Janessa chose a theme and ran with it, which resulted in beautifully-crafted, classic clothing.

I also thoroughly enjoyed Playa Bonita's adorable beachwear line, as did all the men in the audience whose jaws dropped as gorgeous women of all shapes and sizes paraded down the runway in fun and flirty swimwear.

Fashion Magazine's Caroline Gault, me (with a new hair style courtesy of Justine at Flaunt salon) and Janis from Dress Me Dearly. We just all happened to be wearing red nail polish that night!

A very stylish Edmontonian I had to take a picture of. Loved her studded boots!

Two of the most talented photographers in town: Harvey Miedreich and Aaron Pederson who must have called each other before the show to plan out their outfits ; ). Actually it was a total coincidence. Or so they say...

Alexandra said...

Absolutely crazy about everything in Malorie Urbanovitch's line...seriously, the colours, the cuts, the materials. Perfection, and like you said, so wearable.

Loooove the new haircut Marie! You look stunning in that pic. You're so lucky you have the bone structure to pull off a bold but timeless cut like that, it would fall flat on me hahaha (literally and figuratively). I've so been loving all of these fashion week posts, thank you for being so regular about them!
