The downtown fashion week is an event that began in 2006 and promptly took over Calgary's streets. It was four days filled with fashion shows and many great fashion events that was topped by the Designer Gala, attended by over 350 people. Included in the Gala was the local up and coming designer Janet Lapuz, who went on to represent Calgary at the L'Oreal Fashion week.
The 2007 event will be a fashion forward thinking event and features a robust sense of Urban Chic, which is a large ingredient in the vitality of Downtown Calgary. Events such as Bollywood Night featuring UK star Raghav, Frolik a event with Project Runway and a Designer Gala featuring the 12 Designers to Watch as well as a Boardroom Betty, which will involve hosting different business seminars, these various events will celebrate Calgary’s Diverse fashion scene. Downtown Fashion Week 2007 is planning to increase customer traffic and awareness to the great designers we have here.
In 2007 fashion week is September 4th through the 8th. More information on where to purchase tickets will be posted soon.
