PARKShow 2015 Reveals An Ambitious Runway At Chinook Centre

PARKSHOW 2015 Reveals An Ambitious Runway At Chinook Centre
Calgary-based emerging fashion and art talents organization Promoting Artists Redefining Kulture (PARK) is ready to set off another year of PARKSHOW, a fashion showcase of young promises of tomorrow in the Canadian fashion industry. 

The 8th installment of PARKSHOW will be held on May 23rd 2015. It is perhaps one of the organization's most interesting and ambitious project where the fashion show will occur at the underground parking facility of one of Calgary's largest retail shopping mall, the Chinook Centre

As the city is located in the inland of the prairies, the PARK team is determined to bring an oceanic experience to their audience. The North P2 Parkade will be transformed into an interactive space inspired by the natural beauty of the coast, and accompanied by ocean-theme art installation by local artist Jennie Vallis.

"Each year our talent, production and guest experience improves and we are grateful for the interest PARK continues to receive at a local, Western Canadian and now national level." said Kara Chomistek, the president of PARK. "We are especially thankful to our returning title sponsor, Chinook Centre, for allowing us to flex our creativity in the amazing blank canvas that is their underground parkade. We cannot wait to show you what we are creating!"

This year's PARKSHOW will showcase the current work by ten Canadian designers mostly from Alberta, which include: Bano eeMee (Calgary), SP Badu (Calgary), Vivian Lee (Toronto/Calgary), LUXX RTW (Edmonton), Suka (Edmonton), Coutu Kitsch (Calgary), Eliza Faulkner (Vancouver), Lennard Taylor (Winnipeg), Forge Apparel (Calgary), and 6 Streets (Calgary). In addition, two participating retailers will also reveal their latest collections on the runway.

Proceeds from ticket, bar sales and sponsorship will enable PARK to continue hosting future events that can bring exposure and entrepreneurship opportunities to aspiring artists.
