Edmonton Fashion News

Edmonton designer Malorie Urbanovitch wins a spot on the runways of Toronton Fashion Week after winning the Western Canada semi-final in the Mercedes-Benz Start Up competition.  (Read more great coverage of the event by Marie.)

Last week, Theresa (the talent behind the popular blog of McMurray Musings) toured some Edmonton boutiques. Her raving words remind us to love our city and support our local shops. 

A great re-cap (with photos!) of two fashion events that raised funds for very good causes: Feathers, Fedoras and Friday Night Blues and Spirit of Spring Fashion Show.

Show your purse-sonality. Until April 29, Londonderry Mall is collecting purses for Suit Yourself  - an amazing organization dedicated to helping women re-enter the workforce. Drop off your gently used purse at Guest Services and you could win a purse a month for a year ($1,200 in Londonderry Mall Gift Cards)
