Day Five of Western Canada Fashion Week in Edmonton was Fantasy Night.  It was a night of creativity, costume and audacious whimsy.

As a true artistic showcase, the folks at Western Canada Fashion Week gave us more than just wearable art.  The evening started with an almost hypnotic performance by Michael Oritz aka "The Flowbot".
