OFW Day 1, Backstage Anticipation
It's Day 1 for this season's Ottawa Fashion Week, and there's a lot of excitement in the air. I am here assisting backstage, and everyone cannot wait for the crowds to arrive!
Live bands are setting up, interns are steaming garments, and there's rehearsals after rehearsals.
I cannot wait to see the transformations that these models will undergo. Like a chameleon, some popular models will even undergo multiple looks for multiple designers. That's a lot of hair teasing and makeup for one night!
As a backstage intern, I have the honor of assisting Celine Brideau with her label, "CBrido", who has travelled vicious weather and traffic to get to the Capital. Based out of New Brunswick, she displays cozy and warm, yet high fashion garments. Suitable for the Canadian business woman!
Stay tuned for more on Ottawa Fashion Week as I will keep you updated on all the backstage buzz.
