ARTwear 2012 is back for its tenth year and has yet another exciting line-up of local designers and boutiques ready to razzle and dazzle everyone at the Hotel Arts (Calgary)! As usual the show will kick off with the ACAD Wearable Art Showcase and then follow with the ARTwear 2012.
Paul Hardy who has returned from shopping in Paris for fall fabric (oh my!) will be showing his latest collection and Architect turned Fashion Designer, Lara Presber, will also have her innovative designs strut down the runway. Local popular boutiques Coco & Violet, Henry Singer, Leo Boutique and Mealan are on the list as well providing a well-rounded menu of delectable fashion for all to feast.
A Fashion Trunk Show Auction will also be held for fashion and art supporters to bid on one-of-a-kind styles from local businesses so be sure to bring your wallet and dash of altruism!
And just to make things even more fabulous (as if they weren’t fabulous enough already) ARTwear will have a theme for the night: Vintage Hollywood! Watch a little Mad Men and then head over to Cat’s Eye Vintage to pick up a fun frock for the evening and help raise money for a great cause in retro-glam style! To purchase your ticket, go HERE, the facebook page is HERE.
Blog post to come afterwards! Stay tuned. Hope to see you guys there! Here is the blog POST from the last ARTwear that we attended!
