Caitlin Power is a talented womenswear designer from Calgary. I mean, check out this dress. Love.
Chris and I were thrilled to attend the preview of Caitlin’s fall 2012 collection last Thursday. The show took place at Calgary’s pop-up furniture and accessories store, Sit. Interiors, which is open at 820 – 11 Ave. SW until October. Have a peek at the, um, interior (and check it out soon!):
Caitlin’s fall collection was striking — dark, sleek and sexy. Here’s one model making her rounds:
We were not as dark, sleek and sexy, but we did have an excellent time chatting with a bunch of our media and fashion friends. Like, for example, the girls in the pic below. From left to right: Chris, my lovely co-Toque; Alex Kingcott, Anstice Communications guru; me; and Malwina Gudowska, our great friend/writer/blogger.
We weren’t the only ones taking photos. People were shooting everything from the clothes to the crowd. I knew Linda Sui Lem from Calgary Fashion had taken this photo of Katy Bond (the fab woman behind Notable‘s Calgary edition) and me, but I didn’t know where it would pop up. Friday morning, a guy at work said he’d just seen the photo on Instagram. Love the land of social media. (Unfortunately, I don’t have access to all of it, as I’m one of those rare BlackBerry users.)
We had a great time on Thursday and can’t wait to see your fall designs out on Calgary streets, Caitlin.
