Edmonton, AB

It's that time of year again.  A showcase of big hair, big heels and bigger personalities as models of all shapes and sizes strut their stuff down the runway for Western Canada Fashion Week (WCFW)at the ATB Financial Arts Barn.

Monday Night's Line Up

Fantasy Night gave us edgy elegance with Lisa-Marie Couture's collection of rockin' dresses, eerie wonder with a collection of haunting characters from Sanctuary Curio Shoppe ft. Lewis Mayhem and Vexy Heart and the corseted beauties from Sweet Carousel Corsetry left us with the sultry taste of the forbidden which, let's face it, we all wish we had more of in our lives.

Behind the Scenes with Cherie Howard

Top Left: MUA: Courtney Duncan, Model: Kazper Harley; Bottom Left: Hair Stylist and Model: Yanna Lorence; Right: Model: Sam Marcellin, Hair: Yanna LorenceCherie Howard is a renaissance woman with talents such as doll and puppet making, photography, clothing design, fiction writing, film making and much more.

Backstage there is a flurry of activity as models move from hair to makeup to wardrobe and back to hair for a quick boost before they walk.

While dressing models, doing hair and giving the okay on the makeup, Cherie was able to tell us a bit about the inspiration for this collection.

She said: "I was working on some crowns for another project and once I start with Model Magic, I can’t seem to stop.  I just decided to have some fun with it.

"The clothes are modeled after clothing for dolls, but with a slightly goth and avant-garde feel to them."

Final Round Up: Designer Cherie Howard, Photo: LA MorleyOMD4 Makeup & FX's Olivia Morley was backstage working with fellow makeup artist, Courtney Duncan, getting Cherie's models ready for the runway at the WCFW Fantasy Night event. 

Hair stylist, Yanna Lorence has worked with Cheri on many occasions.  Though in the early stages of her career, Yanna doesn't seem to let the pressure get to her.

She said: "It’s not everyday you can make people happy doing what you love, so I’ll keep doing it and see where it goes.  Hair and fashion is always changing, so I’ll need to change with it.  Being younger helps, I think, because I’m am open to having some fun with hair.  It's an accessory you never take off."
