OFW Day 4: In the Audience

That evening, on Sunday, February day of Fall/Winter Ottawa Fashion Week, I had the opportunity to enjoy what the front of the house has to offer.

First up was cocktail hour held in a small lounge on the main level of the Museum of History. Here you got to mingle with all kinds of fashion lovers.

Then down in the main hall came a beautiful performance of vocals and traditional throat singing, working in perfect harmony with string instruments.
After that opening performance, my friends and I took time to be our silly selves at the photo booth... one of the major attractions that evening.

The lights then dimmed and we all sat down in anticipation to see what we all came for - a final look at DUY's collection.

If you are confused, let me catch you up to speed. Top fashion designer Mr. Duy Nguyen is retiring his label, but the designer himself will continue on in the world of fashion elsewhere. It was bittersweet to see the beautiful pieces of art walking down the runway, knowing that it will be the last. But as the saying goes, "When one door closes, another opens." I have high hopes to see what awaits for Mr. Nguyen!

The crowd was then whisked away into serenity by a grand piano performance for the finale. What a dazzling way to end this season's Ottawa Fashion Week.

Good work to all the OFW staff, designers, and assistants. We pulled off a hell of a show! I look forward to helping out next season!
