With Milan, London and New York now in our rear view, and Paris currently underway (our fashion director Tiyana Grulovic is there now!), fashion month is nearly over. But, amid the flurry of sheer and pastels, the Selenas and Minajs, Canadian fashion weeks presented their wears in Montreal, Vancouver and Ottawa. On our radar today, Canada’s capital.
Being from Ottawa I have had the pleasure of watching OFW grow from the early days with a square runway (Arts Court!) to the National Art Gallery of Canada, one of the most prestigious venues in the city. Though, I never expected it to hop across the river to the province of Quebec—I mean, would NYFW show in Jersey? Trading in location for space (size does matter), Ottawa Fashion Week showcased collections from across Canada over three days at the Hilton Lac Leamy in Gatineau.
