It’s been two weeks overdue, but here is the outfit I wore to opening night of Atlantic Fashion Week (AFW) on Oct 2nd. AFW has now finished their 8th season with the mission to support local upcoming and well-known fashion designers in the Atlantic Canada region such as Veronica MacIsaac, Orphanage, Zafira Apparel, just to name a few. I didn’t attend closing night, but for the opening night my favorites included:
Donn Sabean: Gorgeous one-of-a-kind, hand-dyed, and hand-printed dresses/silky pants floated down the runway as if I was heading on vacation to an exotic location. She pulls some of her inspirations from ethnic dress and the iconic 70s flower child.
MJM (Maggie J. MacCormick): Adorable and whimsical pieces that I need in my closet, and reminds me of fun tennis wear with a nautical touch!
Clutch Culture: Effortlessly cool models walk the runway, showcasing a collection of clutches and men’s bags with a mixture of prints, textiles, and colors.
What I’m Wearing: Phaedra Bootie – Michael Kors // Colorblocked Pant – Wilfred (Aritzia) // Black Knit Tank – Aritzia // Gold Choker – Michael Kors // Gold Cuffs – Etsy // Black Leather Jacket – Michael Kors // Tan & Black Clutch – Marciano
