Part 2 of Western Canada Fashion Week was a TONNE of fun and showcased many great designers!
From my vantage point (… in front row 😉 ) I got to see details that no camera can snap, no video can capture, and only can be described as… the notes below each picture. As each look walked down the runway my iPad got the pummeling of its life! I now present: WCFW Part 2 and my commentary.
