Western Canada Fashion Week
Saturday February 13 , 2016
Edmonton born, Derek Jagodzinsky has a streamlined vision for comfort and innovation. Derek has created lines that exceed the expectations of most; they deliver clothing that is as jawdropping as it is usable. He creates a look that you didn't even know you wanted, but have to have.
Every now and then I come across a designer or event that I have to highlight, simply because of the unique qualities they bring. This time I so happened to have stumbled upon both in one. I'm talking about the Luxx Ready to Wear fashion show at Western Canada Fashion Week S/S 2016.
The excitement that buzzed from the people around me as I arrived at the ATB Financial Arts Barnes thrusted me into an intoxicating creative high. The olive in the martini glass was knowing that as soon as we walk into the lobby of WCFW we would be peering into the exclusive minds of some of the most unique designers in Western Canada.
Located in the heart of the Strathcona theater district, the area was suiting for arts and fashion. I entered and was welcomed by courteous fashion hungry staff. Everybody was as kind as ever. The wine was pouring, the heels seemed limitless and I was home! I stood next to a beautiful display for Luxx ready to wear and mingled while enjoying a small cup of white wine. I was eager to watch the show as this was my first time arriving as a guest, as opposed to walking in the show. This production is something I've wanted to enjoy for a while, and simply enjoying it would turn out to be an understatement. I found my chair in the beautifully dimmed room as the lights were lowering and the ruffling slowed down. This was it. It was about to begin.
The lineup of the night was Suka Clothing (if you have a second please check out their Menace Beach line...to die for), the environmentally ethical New Classic Studios, and finishing the night was Luxx ready to wear.
To explain how flawless and captivating the shows were, my date was my fashion-phobic husband and even he couldn't deny the incredible assembly of art before us. He loved it and would go again!
Western Canada Fashion Week is more than a show, it is an imaginative environment for the the fashion savvy public and creators alike. Check them out Thursday March 24 - Thursday March 31 2016.
