Ottawa Fashion Week kicks off in style...

It's finally fall in the city...not that I don't miss the summer, because I do! But in a city like Ottawa, the fall is much anticipated, why? Perhaps it is because the leaves turn gorgeous colours, the weather is perfect for high boots, full skirts and blazers, but most importantly because the fall marks the return of Ottawa Fashion Week...recently the city has taken a beating when it comes to style and fashion, being voted the #8 worst dressed city in the world doesn't really lend itself as a confidence builder, to say the least...but I won't rant and rave and try to defend Ottawa with claims that we are in fact better-dressed than a scathing article would suggest, but I will say this: every city has its style-makers and breakers, individuals who strive to make their urban surroundings more chic and those who just don't care...clumping all individuals under a particular category (such as "worst-dressed city") isn't necessarily fair, I agree, but at the same time it should act as an incentive to go out there, get gussied up and show those 'haters' that the few don't represent everybody...that being said, OFW, this year did truly start off in style at the Arc Hotel...I for one think that the people who gathered for the occasion negated the article's claim and here are some pictures to prove it...perhaps with more events like this, we can shake that nasty rumour about lacking a fashion sense, for good...a special thanks to Ming Wu for generously allowing me to use his amazing photos, Thanks Ming!
PS: I only have two sets of photos from OFW: Day 1, but more are on their way, stay tuned...
 Angie (DEMU Label), two guests and Julie (Popchampagne)
 Myself and Erica Wark
 Mingling Crowd
 Marc Lavoie, Justyna and Julie being silly...

OFW, the shows: Day 1...
Today the fashion festivities continue with day two of OFW...I for one can't wait to get dolled up and hit the town with my ladies in tow...in the mean time, hope you are all having a very stylish Friday...
Love K
