“As I’m rebuilding [my business] in the past few years, the best moment was when I walked out on the runway at Ottawa Fashion Week, after I launched my collection of 32 looks. I felt so good,” said David McCaffrey, McCaffrey Haute Couture. “I had a glass of wine in my hand and I was so happy in that moment. I’ve never felt that good before.”
OFW has built a solid presence through national media coverage and strong artistic vision, providing excellent exposure for designers both up and coming and established. Designers are encouraged to submit as soon as possible to secure their place on the Ottawa Fashion Week S/S 2013 runway.
