The OMD4 team was at the ATB Financial Alberta Arts Barn for night three of the fall showing of Western Canada Fashion Week. Global Collections night never fails to amaze with luxurious fabrics, a myriad of colour and plenty of patterns.

I'm not the type to rave about everything I see.  If I don't like it, I'll say so.  My personal opinion of the evening? 

Beyond beautiful.  

My eyes were glued to every layer, every detail and every step as I found myself wondering how much it might be to own every piece I loved, but realized it would probably mean selling my car. 

The evening began with a spoken word showcase by Quebec-based artist Lady Vanessa Caicedo Cardona who gave an impassioned performance that answered the question: "Where do you come form?"  Her answer ... "I come from love." 

Maria Valencia Alvarez of the Pique Dance Centre in Edmonton performed next leaping and spinning her way down the runway in an elegant showing of her talents.

Kilele Creations

The first collection was from designer Dan Muthui Kilele who, though based in Edmonton, is originally from Nairobi, Kenya.  He showed us both men's and women's trend-setting style with an African flare.  Long dresses with fun geometric patterns joyfully contrasting light and dark featured heavily in this line.  

Designerz Den

Can someone be elegant and demur while being sexy at the same time?  The girls sporting Designerz Den fashions proved it was possible.  Through the layers of modest sari material and sheers shawls shone a confident beauty.

Africstyle Fashion

Fabrics, prints and colours infused with inspirations of Africa tickled the senses.  From the drummer who lead the line to the to the bright colours and large-print patterns to the breezy fabrics you could feel without the need to touch. 

Aman Couture

Extravagance ruled the runway when Aman Couture closed the evening.  Every colour of the rainbow paraded down the catwalk and each outfit was embellished with gold trim, inlay and stitching.  I felt richer just watching the layers of flowing fabrics walk by.

Some issues are really left to be undone. Although, I don't quite understand what's going around with the post, I just red it. And nothing came into my mind. Sorry. But anyway, since everybody is saying it's a nice post, I would also say great post mate.
