You can always count on PARK to throw a notable fashion affair.
Bringing together a stylish crowd and a runway full of top Canadian talent, each installment takes place in some of the most unusual event spaces this city has to offer. From golf domes to opera tents, the organizers continue to up the ante by transforming a wide variety of spaces into the setting for an unforgettable and well-styled evening.
And the PARKSHOW taking place on May 23rd will be no exception.
If you’re wondering where you’ll be heading for this year’s event, then your wait is over. Drum roll, please….
http://notable.ca/smugmug/Newgallery/fashion_chi-M.jpgAt a sneak peak event last week, it was confirmed that Chinook Centre’s North P2 Parkade will be this year’s event location – an innovative and imaginative concept that’s never been attempted with a Calgary fashion show before.
Using the upscale mall’s underground parking as their blank canvas, the PARK team will be wowing attendees with two runway shows full of spring/summer collections and giving everyone the chance to pick up designer goods at the featured pop-up shops that will be open throughout the evening.
This year’s line-up will showcase the hottest new seasonal looks from aspiring young Canadian designers like Eliza Faulkner, Bano eeMee, Coutu Kitsch, Vivian Lee, 6 Streets, Suka, Forge Apparel, LUXX RTW, SP Badu and Lennard Taylor.
And it wouldn’t be a PARKSHOW without some form of avant-garde art performance or installation. Always pushing the boundaries of expression in the best way possible, the May event will include artwork by Jennie Vallis, a Calgary-based artist who will be displaying a stunning installation series inspired by the ocean.
Tickets are now on sale with several different options for seating available, and don’t forget that tickets include entrance into the after party at Double Zero – just a quick ride up the escalator.
Not only will you be attending a signature city event, you’ll also be supporting an organization that continues to drive culture in Calgary.
Doesn’t that make you feel fabulous?
