Ottawa Fashion Week March 2010
Ottawa Fashion Week - filling a void within the Ottawa fashion scene - a designer's point of view
With a great pleasure I accepted an invitation to be a guest designer for Ottawa Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2010, which took
place at Arts Court, 2 Daly Ave on March 24-27, 2010.
As a fashion designer I started my collaboration with the fashion week committee two years ago, in 2008. That time, as a
designer starting my business here in Ottawa, I've gained a lot of experience, exposure and also, customers! It's been a lot of work but it all payed off!
go to all volunteers there who helped me to set up the place and relieved all the stress raised from the little technicalities
which are the necessary part of the process. It left my hands free for other very important tasks and allowed me to think
approached me with all the questions and without his creative vision it wouldn't be easy to put together such a show.
All my line was gracefully presented by models from Angie's Models, MIM and Barrett-Palmer agencies.
The entire event has been a great contribution in terms of bringing fashion to Ottawa residents - the event was not only for
fashion professionals, buyers and press, but also for all fashion conscious men and women seeking for something different
and special. BRAVO and well done!!
Touted as a success by all, Ottawa Fashion Week wrapped up at the newly opened Exchange Pub-Restaurant at Rideau
Street and Sussex Drive Monday, March 29th, 2010. Oh, my, what a night!
Thank you, photographers, Eric Mercier and Marc Lavoie for taking pictures of my line on the runway!
