AFW - Boutique Night

posted on: Saturday, May 21, 2011

Thursday kicked off day one of Alberta Fashion Week with boutique night. Three local retailers, Apt. 22, Mealan, and Bellissima showed fashion week attendees what Calgarians could find in stores this spring and summer. 

Apt. 22 started off the night with bohemian inspired styles including lose flowing fabrics and screen printed t-shirts. Mealan was next up, filling the room with a collection of colourful garments perfect for spring. Finally Bellissima wowed the crowd with their edgy rocker pieces styled by the incredibly talented Jennifer Lyle who writes for the blog Mode Jelly
