ARTwear 2012

The Art Gallery of Calgary - ARTwear 2012
The Art Gallery of Calgary's annual fashion fundraiser event ARTwear 2012 happened past Thursday at Hotel Arts. With the continue support of local CalgariansARTwear has reached its 10 year anniversary, certainly something to celebrate about. The money raised from this event will go towards funding young and future aspiring artists.

Prior to the fashion show, several local fashion designers including Aleem Arif, Michelle Baynes, and Marsina King displayed their designs inspiring guests with their talents. 
Unlike previous ARTwear, the part of the evening where Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD) students showcase their wearable art was no longer just a VIP experience. General ticket guests were able to enjoy the innovative work by the ACAD students, which opened the night's runway show. The following were showcases by various local designers and boutiques including: Paul HardyHenry SingerLara Presber Archtecture+Design StudioMealan Women's FineryCoco+Violet and Leo Boutique
Like other years, there was silent auction donated by the event's sponsors. Added was a 50's style jazz band performance, amplifying this year's vintage hollywood glam theme. My favourite part of the evening was ACAD students' wearable art designs. Though I did found there were less student participants than last year's ARTwear. I do wish to see more student's creative work, and hopefully they can be the spotlight of what ART-wear is all about.
