Western Canada Fashion Week
September 23, 2015
Wednesday's Line Up
Here I am again back at the ATB Financial Arts Barn in Edmonton, AB for Western Canada Fashion Week Fall 2015.
This time around I focused on blogging instead of makeup. I didn't take any makeup work this season. I have to say I truly enjoyed seating there watching rehearsals and everyone running around to get things ready.
Mister Cosmetics owner Molly Alanna came with me to watch the show.
We started off with a short video from Janelle Brown, winner of Spring 2015 Emerging Designer, about what inspires her and how she got into fashion.

Comfy Chic with New Classic Studio
The first to take to the catwalk was New Classic Studio with their line of very comfy loose-fitting dresses and high-waisted pants. Some outfits had an air of private school about them with the collared shirts and lunchbag hand bags. Others made me think of a big comfy chair, a good book and hot chocolate.
My favorite thing about this line was the light blue and black oversized coats. I would wear one for sure. The makeup look for this one was a natural look with copper highlight on the cheeks, which was the perfect touch.
New York Underground with Suka
Next up was Suka and I truly loved this line with its high fashion NY Underground feel: boyfriend jeans, cropped tops and leather skits. Each outfit had style and excitement.
The makeup was pale purple lips with rosey cheeks and clean eyes. The touch of grey steaks really brought it all together.

LUXX Ready to Wear strutted the catwalk with a smoky eye and a nude lip paired with hair braided around the head.
The collection used clean lines with a few simple patterns and the Aboriginal-inspired music selection partnered nicely with the super sleek looks.
While it was not my favourite collection, I did love the clutch handbags with arrowheads and teepees.
It was a short show, but the energy was high. I look forward to see what
these designers have come up in the near future.
