Ottawa Fashion Week Wrap-up

Posts have been delayed for the reason above = Ottawa Fashion Week!!! Again, a million apologies to readers. With that being said, here’s my review and pictures.
The media and buyers were in full force to see a) the success or b) the demise of Ottawa’s first fashion week. What they witnessed was the former. Ottawa Fashion Week was all over the place, and for a first time production, it went smoothly with sold out crowds of 300 people filling the theatre for 29 shows! Models were multicultural representing almost all visible minorities (ugh I hate that term) in Canada.
Alongside the variety of models, there were various styles displayed from business casual, street wear, lingerie, evening wear to fantasy. The media room was also in full effect, however, people didn’t really understand how it functioned too well. Regardless, the event was an overwhelming success and I want to personally thank everyone who attended. Feedback would be much appreciated in order for CIMA to better coordinate the next fashion week.
I also want to thank all media, buyers, participants and volunteers who made the 1st annual fashion week great!

P.S. The event was also at the same time as Race Weekend and still got great exposure, YAY! I can sleep now!

  1. HI! I was one of the models at the jana hanzel show at fashion week on saturday,march 27th – I loved this article, I was really amazed at Jana’s couture fashions – there were unique and inspired – without being to over the top. I feel that her line is aimed for the professional women who is confident, and wants to make a bold fashion statement- while still wearing pieces that can take her from daytime to evening. A nice blend of fashion and practicality. I absolutely loved her hats.
    That being said – i was wandering if you anyone knows where I could possibly find any other pictures from jana’s fashion show – I was hoping to find one of myself, I was the model with the short blond hair. I would love to find a picture – this was my first fashion show. Thank you, kara.
