Hailing from the city of Sydney Australia, I am constantly impressed with the level of quality & excellence the PARK team display at each of their shows. They vision, they plan, they execute.
PARK is an art & fashion exhibition with a focus on emerging talent. Over the past 7 years, it has created a platform that is attainable to new the faces of design. It has become a leader in executing some of Western Canada’s finest events in arts & fashion. These events have given Calgary and the surrounding areas a taste for high fashion and spectacular art.
Fashion, beauty & style are not always just about vanity. I see creativity, dedication & craftsmanship. Many in our society are quick to scrutinize and fault “fashion” but behind each piece of clothing is a person who has dared to be creative.
At this year’s PARKSHOW, ten emerging designers were featured among some of today’s top brands.
BANO EEMEE, 6STREETS, SUKA CLOTHING, VIVIANLEE, S.P. BADU, LUXX READY-TO-WEAR, LENNARD TAYLOR, FORGE APPAREL, COUTU KITSCH & ELIZA FAULKNER were the all-stars of this year’s show presented by Chinook Centre.
The North Parkade in Chinook Centre was transformed into an ocean-swept paradise (I felt right at home!) with an incredible art installation by Jennie Vallis.
Not only were guests treated to viewing the latest collections from these designers, pop-up stores were right there on sight. Among some of the featured designers were even more emerging talents … CAITLIN POWER, KATE HEWKO, HOUSE OF NONIE & my creatively fun friend,ANNEKE FORBES.
I took too many pictures that Saturday evening but I have managed to narrow them down to a few of my favourites.
Thank you PARK for creating yet another unforgettable event!
