Photo Diary: Last 2 Days of WCFW

Caroline and I

Here are some of my favorites from Day 7 & 8 of Western Canada Fashion Week:

Lovely LUXX by Derek Jagodzinsky. Read my interview with the designer here.

Not only did I adore the clothing but the model's hair, done by Ponytails + Horseshoes and the makeup, by Nickol Walkemeyer fit perfectly with Salgado's late '40's-inspired collection titled 'Not Fade Away.'

Suka by Alisha Schick. Fun, feminine and wearable.

Sofiss by Joanna Wala's sleek and modern dresses. I'd wear them all!

    Serendipity by Kelsey McIntyre. The dress on the right gave me shivers when I first saw it.

Stanley Carroll did not disappoint with his warm color palette, unique use of different textures and fabrics and a full collection that could have been reserved for a night on his own at WCFW.

Beverly Gan. Her S/S 2012 was one of my favorite collections (next to Malorie Urbanovitch), with her origami-inspired designs, clean lines and unique pleating. (I had to use WCFW's photo's because the models were walking so fast it was hard to catch a well-focused photo with my camera!)

Edmonton-raised Beverly Gan currently resides in London but we want her back in Canada!

 Janis and Harvey

 Model Hayley Tomich and photographer Sam Moukhaiber

Me and Andrew closing night.

Another exciting and successful season of Western Canada Fashion Week has come to a close. It was an extremely busy week but I loved every minute of it, especially getting to hang out with my crazy and fabulous blogger friends every day. But now my life can get back to normal and I can catch up on some sleep. And your blogs! : ) Actually Friday night I slept almost 13 hours!! I was utterly exhausted. But it was so worth it and I'm already anticipating next season when I can do this alllllll over again ; ).
