The week now ending has been an important one in the world of Canadian fashion. Designers release their newest collections for the season six months ahead at Fashion Week, and Ottawa is the first Canadian city to hold its fashion week, giving us a taste of what is to come from our local talent.
This season, I walked for Canadian designer KLATT on the Thursday night of fashion week. It is difficult to describe the positive energy of preparing for these shows and being a part of this event.
Klatt’s styles are knitwear: comfortable, imaginative and yet very wearable. I enjoyed working with this talented new designer.

Wine and refreshments were served to guests who came dressed to kill or not dressed up at all and a gala dinner was available for those inclined to further celebration. My time available for this event was brief but I was inspired by the designers, hairstylists, makeup artists and all the creative talent that went into it. “Fashion Week” sounds intimidating to lots of people I think, but what a great night out. I really recommend getting out to one of these if you haven’t been!
Have you been to fashion week in your city? Would you wear this hair?
