AFW | Anne B. & NRT

posted on: Saturday, May 28, 2011

Friday was day two of Alberta Fashion Week. KD and I were lucky enough to be invited by the Smashbox and Bourjois makeup artists to get our makeup done with the models! I'm saving my makeup photos for a separate post, so you will get to see those shots another day. 
As with the previous night, the doors opened early giving fashion week attendees the chance to mingle and network. KD and I bumped into Sarah from Pagoda Magazine, Shino of Shino's Journal, Miranda of Twenty Something Blog Online, Rupi of The Diva Lounge,  the girls of PARK, and several Calgary Fashion members, just to name a few.

Showing their designs on the second night were Anne B. Accessories and NRT. As I descibed in this post, Anne B's accessories are made from natural materials including bone, wood, shell, and horn resin. All the designs for the second runways show, NRT were hand-made by the designer, Nicole Rita Tomney. For me, her collection brought up images of Beatle Juice, Lady Gaga, and vampires. Everything was in shades of  black and white and grey. This was the second time I had the chance to see NRT. The first was at PARKSHOW in March.
