Capital Fashion Week

The evening of CFW was full of socializing, picture taking, and had the perfect ambience for a runway show. The event took place at the government conference center which was tasteful and the execution of the event went swimmingly. The whole evening was very well organized allowing for two recesses between the 4 runway shows on Friday night. This event which set the tone for future Ottawa Fashion Week's even garnered the international attention of Stacey McKenzie who sat front row and applauded as Canadian talent came down the runway. Stacey has been a guest judge on America's Next Top Model.
The event was not very publicized, but was open to the public. There was a healthy balance of socialites as well as studets and business persons. I manned the Capital Style booth during intermissions and watched the runway shows from the photographers booth (great seats!)
The first designer was Dace Brand by Dace Moore: very laid back and casual clothing but with detail that gave it a stylish edge.
