Emerging Atlantic Designers Shine at the Design and Artistry Showcase this Weekend

Welcome to world fashion month, where trendsetters rave about spring and summer fashion half a year before it becomes relevant in the consumers’ minds. The focus of this time of year is often on the big fashion houses and the one-off designers skilled/unique/lucky enough to make it to the runway with the big dogs. But there are thousands – scratch that – hundreds of thousands of designers across the world that are making chic, relevant, ready-to-wear pieces, and that’s what the Design and Artistry Showcase is all about.

One of the best things about Nova Scotia is the emphasis on living local. The Canadian East Coast is rich with food, culture and creativity, and there are often events to showcase all it has to offer, like this weekend’s Design and Artistry Showcase at Sunnyside Mall in Bedford, where emerging designers and artists have set up to reveal their fall collections and latest works. Here’s a first look at the showcase from their VIP launch party Thursday night!
