Alberta Fashion Week- Night 4

Last night at Alberta Fashion Week was great. What an amazing group of shows! The first show of the night was Anji.K. From black lace tops to one long dangling earring, this show was really edgy of cool. That's one of the motifs I've seen from ABFW is the edgy style of fashion we have here in Alberta. I also enjoyed the variety of volumes in the show, with both fitted and billowy pieces.







































The second show of the night, Defy Gravity, was super playful. The designer described the collection as "fun, freedom, movement, colour" and these were perfect adjectives! Lots of volume mixed with bandeua tops and amazing hair pieces!











































The third show of the night, by NRT, was inspired by the Lady Gaga no pants trend. Lots of leg-less body suits and jackets with crazy long sleeves. Definitely high on the cool/innovation chart!

















































Pout, the fourth show of the night, was also very cool and edgy. The designer described her collection as "rock n roll" with black and pink making up the majority of the clothing. I love the jacket with short ruffle sleeves. More exposed midriffs in this show as well.
























































The final show of the night, Madame Wolf, was amazing. I loved the feathered headdress and fringe-y, Canadiana styles. The fur was a cool addition, though I'm not sure if it's real or fake. What an amazing finale to a great night of shows!

Wow..those were some sleeves with that gaga collection. Very unique shows. I have to admit, I like that cap in the last collection. I think I could make one out of something I want to recyle. Of course, I'd love a closer look. My caps have been hit and miss as of late that I've done out of old sweaters. Its terrible when you are trying to work and all you can think about is how to put the pieces together to sew and wear..yet, its fun too.
