Last night my friend and I headed to the 2nd night of Western Canada Fashion week- the WEM showcase. Nazilla Couture, DraileD, Isabella Milan, Lisa Maire, and Aimy Corbeil. It was my first time at an event like this. Despite not initially knowing what was going on, and being herded into the room, with no guidance where to sit, we ended up with a good seat. West Edmonton Mall provided very nice little gift bags for all in attendance, with coupons, magazines, a notebook, and travel mug.
Very briefly, here are some of my thoughts about the show:
– All the girls who modelled for the WEM Showcase were very thin; some of them were sickly thin. While, I think all healthy bodies are beautiful and I don’t want to say anything bad about any one personally, but I am among those who think models should weight more than 80 pounds, and should more realistically portray the women of today. Besides that, the clothes were just alright.
– Thankfully, the other models in the the collections ranged in size, although still not a single one could be considered plus size, which I think was too bad.
-The bridal collection by Isabella Milan, was just lovely! Although, I am not one one for traditional dresses, these were very pretty.
– The styling in the other collections were not the best- this is my opinion. One model particularity was wearing shoes that were way too big- you could clearly see how large they were, as there was a large gap between the back of the shoe and her heel.
– DrailD was my favorite collection; it was a little rock n roll,was original, and a nice range of models.
Alright, so here is what I wore to my first fashion show.
