Ottawa Fashion Week Launch Party

Ottawa Fashion Week Communications Team (Fajir, Gina, me, Amoi and Kristy)

As some of you know, I am a Social Media and PR intern for Ottawa Fashion Week.  This basically means that I am responsible for tweeting @OFW_LIVE and blogging (I'm ^EB).  It has been an amazing but labour intensive process so far, putting in on average 10 hours/week leading up the event.  Last night was our launch party at the Lobby lounge and it was very successful with a couple hundred invited guests in attendance including fashion designers Adrian Wu, Yola Couture and Emilia Torabi & Jana Hanzel.  It was a fun night filled with fashion, laughter, and mingling and I can't wait for the shows to start tonight.  I will be working hard over the weekend so don't think that I have forgotten about y'all. As soon as the fashion madness is over I will be stopping by to say hello!

And because I can't leave you without some fashion shots, here are some great photos from The Fashion Keeper's blog:

Myself, Julie (Pop Champagne) and fashion photographer Lawrence Callender
