Ottawa Fashion Week: Spring/Summer 2013
This past weekend marked the eighth season of Ottawa Fashion Week here in the capital city.  This year, the event took place in Little Italy's Sala San Marco centre - a much more intimate setting than the Convention Centre.  Saturday evening was probably the most lively and exciting of the bunch, mainly because it featured some oiled up man-bodies covered in glittery gold dust (thank you Andrew Nguyen of Y!D.N.A. !).  Homegrown model extrodinaire, Herieth Paul, also made some appearances on the runway.  We even made some new fashion friends - hooray!  Plus, we started a delicious tradition of eating pastries between breaks, because even fashion people need to eat.  AND, we managed to get ourselves into both the front row and the VIP Lounge on day three - basically we rule!  I'd say it was a weekend well spent for us Capital Oh girls; we made friends, started traditions and even had our photos taken.  We saw some great (and not-so-great) shows, but the overall atmosphere of the weekend was really fun.  So until next season, stay classy friends! - J
