Finally after months of hard work I unveiled my debut line at Alberta Fashion Week. This was the first annual event for AFW and it is here to stay!!! Alberta Fashion will put on events throughout the year showcasing local and non-local Canadian designers. The two major events will occur October and March of every year. This is really exciting for Calgarians, Albertans and Canadian designers- finally the local fashion community is coming togethor and putting down some roots! I hope you enjoy my new line.

Look Of The Day

Often when we think fashion, we think designer labels and big bucks. I'm here to tell you (as an avid thrift store shopper) that this is nonsense! Although style and fashion are two very things, you can have it all with confidence and creativity. The young woman here is wearing a recycled eighties look- aimed to the hipster but still looking good in non-label garb. My best hint is to check out Divine Fashion on 17th Avenue SW in Calgary, AB- some of the best vintage in this city for the cheapest price!
