A must-see fashion show
Attending this fashion show event was amazing, there was such a buzz of positivity in the air and though the show began significantly later than expected, no one seemed bothered, they were having too much fun.
This show took place at the beautiful Audi Ottawa, the space cleared of it’s high-end vehicles for the evening and glamorously decorated for the holidays; it was the perfect space to host this event.

Brand designer Stacy gave an amazing inspirational speech to open the fashion show, it detailed her journey as a dancer on Broadway to start-up fashion designer in Toronto, to super successful designer for New York Fashion Week and beyond.
This show was a roundup of all her previous collections, including her collection from New York Fashion Week 2017, leading into the 20/20 Vision which Stacy describes as being inspired by, “finding your belief in yourself and being able to have the courage to live the Entrepreneur Life”.
This event was an amazing fashion show that was not to be missed, all of Ottawa’s fashion & style community was present and accounted for and I count myself as fortunate to have been included in this crowd. I met some amazing new faces, found so much style inspiration and worked on honing my photography skills.
