OFW Review...

This morning I woke up to a truly terrible sight...white snow EVERYWHERE!!!  ...Breathe....Breathe...okay, well I guess we are making up for the gorgeous weather we had this weekend when the sun shone and the temperatures were in the positives...but alas, I digress from the real reason for this post, and that is to review a bit of Ottawa Fashion Week which occurred this past (sunny and warm) weekend...
Rachel Sin had these T-shirts made for her models (and one for me!) which literally made my month...I could not stop smiling every time I saw one...


...my husband and Rachel's boyfriend (Bogdan) wore them all night!

I was only able to catch one day of the action due to some other random things I had to do, but I am glad I at least got to see the Rachel Sin and !Nu.i show both of which were really great...Here are snapshots of the evening, including some behind the scenes photos by Elliot Mak, and candid shots by Ming Wu, both of which are amazing!

ElizBourk
I haven't seen this designer before...but I was impressed with the simplicity of the designs...this was a nice surprise for me, to see something utterly wearable but also unique and interesting on the runway, that translates into the cold winter months we have here in the city...

Very simple designs and cuts...uber lady-like with flowy skirts and subdued colours...I loved the skirt with the embodied owl...just sayin'...

Per usual, Rachel did not disappoint...edgy, yet sophisticated...classy but not understated (wow that actually rhymes)....I am pretty much in love with most pieces particularly the black leather jacket, the backless dress with huge pockets and the gold blazer...this little blogger is saving up...



Just saw a !Nu.i show in Montreal and it really enjoyed it...this one was just as good, but with a little more metallic flair!



Hanging out...
Kyle and Friend...
Myself and Jusytna (of chicshop)
Hugh, Rachel Sin and Bogdan (her other half)

So that's that...a fun filled day full of fashion and friends...what better way to spend a Saturday? Without snow!!!

OMG. I was so p.o'ed this morning when I woke up to the snow. It's just not fair, this white stuff was supposed to be melting away for good.

The Saturday show looked amazing. It's hard to pick out favorites. I adore the lines and shapes to Rachel Sin's outfits. It's the perfect mix of runway & street fashion. ElizBourk is a nice line, I too like that everything is something that could be worn any day. I adore the hood scarf... too cool (you know you’re Canadian when you admire outer wear). !Nu.i is one of my newest favorites, the gold dress is super pretty. And, is that a tutu skirt?! I have to get my butt in gear and try to sew one of my own... it’s a must do for the near future.

Kat - looks fabulous! I especially loved the black dress with the keyhole in front (not sure if that's the correct way to describe it). And kudos on the Katarina t-shirts! : )
