Wu-ing us with style

Last week I had the privilege of attending the Signatures Show  to view Adrian Wu's holiday collection.  The venue was perfect-Ottawa's new Convention Centre-an architecturally stunning glass bee comb which overlooks the city.  Excitement was palpable as the trance-like music began and the models stepped out, wearing sky high shoes and futuristic foam headpieces.  The dresses and the styling were out of this world (pun intended) and would be a perfect addition to any fashionista's holiday wish list! My favourite outfit was the one-shoulder silver and white maxi dress (third from the right in the above photo) which I could envision wearing to a cocktail party or New Year's Eve soiree (except I'd probably substitute the braided foam for an elegant fascinator!)

 Local fashionista Petite Adventures (don't you love her star patterned dress?!) and myself.

  1. what an interesting fashion show, I love the collection, very futuristic and unconventional. I like the platforms and headpieces, really stunning designs. You look feminine and classy, I like your vintage style pleated skirt.


  2. Cool style. You look cute and your friends look nice.

  3. Great post! Love the colour of your skirt!

  4. Those platform shoes look killer but then so do the models

    and I have to agree with Petite Adventures your skirt colour is fabulous1

  5. lucky ducky! I totally love that dress too, but I like the grey-blue ones better (as in the last one on the right of the first pic is my fave!) :)
