This post has been a long time in the planning and though I have been distracted by the usual on-goings of life I really wanted to do this post. It’s important to show everyone how much effort is going into these shows and how Canadian designers have stepped up their game in terms of who they are casting: and how this brings more international attention to their shows. In past seasons we have seen major names in the modelling world strut their stuff down the runway for our Canadian designers. For example last season when Andrej Pejic opened and closed the Pink Tartan show or when Yasmine Warsame opened the Attitude by Jay Manuel show followed by a string of America’s Next Top Model alumni. Please keep in mind that this is a regular occurence at fashion weeks around the world and Canadian designers are now realizing just how much a famous face in your designs can add to your international business. If you don’t know who some of these models are just google them and you’ll see!
