Blogger Ania Boniecka, our Calgary localist-at-large, shares her weekly diary of the best shops, restaurants, events and style news from Cowtown

Anneke Forbes
This ultra-soft baby-blue motorcycle jacket one of the latest creations from Anneke Forbes, whose made-to-order womenswear is all handmade in Canada. Getting excited for these warmer days everyone has been talking about so I can take this baby for a ride.

Calgary’s next Parkshow is slated for May 23, when the Chinook Centre parkade will be transformed into a runway for the night, featuring the work of 10 rising-star designers from across the country. All of YYC’s fashion who’s who will be there! Get your tickets here, and come support local talent and be part of their story.


Curate is the brainchild of the popular Calgarian interior designer and television personality Alykhan Velji. The new retail space in Kiya Home features home goods, accessories and gifts by local artisans (you can also find Velji’s own collection at Kiya Home). In keeping with his eclectic taste, Curate is a treasure trove of gorgeous, unique pieces.
