PARKluxe 2015 Recap

It was another great season of PARKluxe, Calgary’s largest running fashion event that showcases both established and emerging Canadian fashion designers. Amidst the fashion week season, it was certainly a good time to embrace and celebrate the talents that we have locally. In addition to long time PARK favorites Caitlin Power, Paul Hardy, Malorie Urbanovitch and Laura Siegel, this season’s fashion show had introduced some newcomers to PARKluxe runway such as House of Nonie, Travis Taddeo, and Eliza Faulkner to the designer roster.
Presented by Bankers Hall, this year PARKluxe again took advantage of the Calgary’s latest hip location, East Village by Bow River, beside the historic Simmons Building. The usual long program didn’t seem to be a drag at all. In fact, with the interesting trunk show vendors including Malika, Paul Hardy, Travis Taddeo, Caitlin Power and Kate Hewko and well engaged VIP section where I got to mingle with some of my closest friends in this city, the evening was actually well entertained. My favorite collections of the evening were House of Nonie, Malorie Urbanovitch and Travis Taddeo. The easily distinguishable aesthetics stood out overall during the show.
It is evident that the PARK team has taken our past feedbacks into consideration, making this event only better than the last. Congratulations to them on the success of PARKluxe 2015, and the city is good to have a Canadian-design focus organization that continues to provide the platform for fashion talents to express their work in western Canada.
Do the things you love with passion; Learn from those you admire; Strive to become an expert at what you do xx
