With the closing of Toronto Fashion Week’s doors, PARK (Promoting Artists | Redefining Kulture) is an even more important platform to showcase top-notch Canadian designers.
PARKLUXE, presented by Bankers Hall on Oct. 1, features a lineup that includes: Atelier By Ensemble Style (menswear), House of Nonie ( who recently presented her Spring/Summer 2017 Collection to Vogue in NYC), Lauren Bagliore, Malorie Urbanovitch, Marie St. Pierre, Okakie, Paul Hardy and Year of the Ram (classy lingerie).
The event takes place at Studio Bell, Home of the National Music Centre in Calgary’s East Village. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase their favourite designs straight from the runway as each designer will have their own pop-up shop. A nice touch to the runway show will be live musical performances.
We got to catch up with Paul Hardy, and Nicole Campre of Okakie. Here is a designer spotlight on them:
