September is an exhausting fashion month. Between wrapping up an overloaded trip to NYC, then participating in our second Edmonton Fashion Blogger Wardrobe Sale a few days after my arrival home; now it’s on to Western Canada Fashion Week. Just when I think rest MUST be in store, it’s time to pack up for a trip south to our friends in Calgary for the PARK LUXE fashion event on October 5.
In between the September fashion madness, there has been a specific show I was anticipating. A fellow fashion blogger pal | vintage connoisseur | local designer Susanna Pearcey debuted her SS’14 collection at WCFW on Friday night.
We saw 10 consistent looks in total and each model oozed professionalism. The collection stemmed of loose fit dresses which fell below the knee, designed with structured lines and hems and a tasteful mixture of texture and prints throughout. I applaud Susanna’s consistency.
I was intrigued by the makeup and the soft curls in the hair was very on-point with the Great Gatsby. The dark lipstick added a shrill of boldness to the elegance of the sheer numbers that I loved so much.
It’s also always refreshing to see pieces that are actually wearable on the catwalk. Great job Suzie! Don’t forget me when you’re famous.
