Western Canada Fashion Week is now in full swing and this is what I wore Saturday night to take in one of the shows. I'm really embracing the colored denim trend for spring! I have to admit I used to shy away from bright and bold colors but not anymore! ; )

So for this post I thought I'd put together some highlights of my favorite designs I've seen so far at WCFW. Here they are in no particular order:

Stanley Carroll usually shows his women and men's collection at the same time but he separated the two this season. Thursday night this talented designer presented his women's collection and I was impressed once again. His garments are always so beautifully constructed, chic and completely wearable. I'm looking forward to viewing his men's collection this Thursday night!

Ravi Gill of DrailD made his debut at WCFW and his collection was very well-received by the audience. His Lady Gaga-esque designs were bold, unique and unexpected. I think this young lad has a very bright future ahead of him!

I adored Lisa Marie Scrioli's romantic and elegant designs.

Isabela Milan's bridal dresses left me speechless. I was in awe of her gorgeous, gorgeous gowns.

I mean, GORGEOUS!

Bloggers! Jared, WCFW's Rowena + Andrew and Vickie, moi, Kastles + Jenna. 
I love how I get to see their lovely mugs every evening.

There are still four more nights left for this season at WCFW. If you're thinking of going I highly recommend getting tickets soon before they sell out! And they usually do, especially the last three nights. For ticket info click here.

And congratulations to Collifornia who won a $100 gift voucher to Asos through my giveaway! I have already contacted you! Thank you to everyone who entered. I have another giveaway coming up soon so sit tight and stay tuned for that ; ).

Nice review! And congrats to the winner...although I'm totally bummed it's not me. And I love these colored jeans on you - it's a trend I'm really excited about as well.

Your colored denim is fabulous, I'm still looking for a decent fitting pair!

The Gaga esque designs are really cool, I wonder what he made the spiky piece out of?

Beautiful wedding gowns too, I always love looking at them because of all the details that go into such a master piece!
