Ottawa Fashion Week is rolling out the red carpet this fall at the elegant Sala San Marco, in the heart of Ottawa’s Little Italy, October 11th–14th, 2012.
Ottawa Fashion Week strives to present a fashion extravaganza that celebrates diversity and multiculturalism, featuring local and national designers on its runway, and artists and musicians incorporated throughout the four day event.
Designers regularly featured include such well-know names as Simon Ekrelius, David McCaffrey, Birds of North America, !NU.I by Vickie, Sukhoo Sukhoo, Amanda Emmanuel, Turbine Fashion, Rachel Sin, Andrew Nyguen and Edit by Jeanne Beker. A complete line-up will be released as the event draws near.
\’\'This venue gives us the opportunity to showcase both fabulous designers and a fantastic Ottawa neighbourhood,” said Kimberly McCarthy-Kearney, OFW PR Coordinator. “Supporting local design, art, music and businesses has been the mandate of Ottawa Fashion Week from its inception, to put our best forth nationally and internationally.”
Beloved for its cuisine, this vibrant community is also home to an eclectic array of shops, yoga and fitness studios, cafés and comedy clubs. Nestled near scenic Dow’s Lake, Little Italy is mere minutes from the downtown core.
\”The Preston Street BIA, representing 156 businesses of Little Italy, is extremely pleased to host Ottawa Fashion Week for their Spring Summer 2013 Collections,\” said Joe Cotroneo, BIA Board member. \”We are proud of the creative European flair and Italian culture that our main street provides, and see fashion as being a perfect fit. Corsica Italia looks forward to welcoming the Ottawa’s well-heeled fashionistas this October.\”
Creative Director Bruno Racine will host media, designers and organizers and sponsors for a glamourous Cocktail Party launch on October 9th at Sala San Marco on Preston Street. OFW is the event of the year for the style conscious in Ottawa and beyond, not to be missed!
