Following a hot sweaty mess at Ottawa Comiccon, I went to downtown for a fashion show by Marcelle Benedicte. It’s been awhile that I attended a fashion show. The event caught my interest because I have been hearing about Marcelle Benedicte for awhile. It’s due in part to The Weather Network’s Arda Ocal. He was the Ottawa correspondent back in late 2013 before moving to Vancouver not too long ago. Marcelle Benedicte was featured a few times on The Weather Network when Ocal was in Ottawa.
The event was at St. Brigid’s Centre for the Arts and it was quite an interesting event as they had proceeds going to Solidaire Jeunesse. The designers on hand were Aria Frances, L’Hexagone, Babes & Gents and Marcelle Benedicte. All are locally based, which is good to see at a fashion show and to show the growing diversity from the fashion designers in Ottawa.
It was great to see a few people I know from the likes of Grace of 613 Style, Nick Bachusky of Lunch Out Loud Ottawa and a photographer at the event.
Overall, it was a hectic Saturday with a comic book convention and a fashion show all in one boot. 🙂
