This week in Calgary is Alberta Fashion Week. The weeks events launched last night with a media reception held at the Nat Christie Centre, home of the Alberta Ballet, and where the fashion shows will be held. KD and I arrived at the media launch together and were greeted with a Blueberry Cosmo poured through an ice sculpture. We were then invited to access a back room where a couple of the designers were preparing a sneak peek for later in the evening.
Media in attendance were granted an exclusive sneak preview of some of the designs by Apt. 22, D.W, Mealan Boutique, and Anne B. Accessories that will be presented later this week. As well, as I posted earlier in the month, Sophia Models along with Live Cosmo and Alberta Fashion Week launched a AFW runway search. The Winner of the search, Karolina S. was announced during the media reception. It was also announced that Karolina will be walking the runway during fashion week for Crabapple Clothing.
