The Glamour Fashion Show by Marcelle Benedicte – S10E25

Glamour Main

Marcelle Benedicte presented a glamourous fashion show which was conveniently called Glamour. The theme for the event was inspired by the old days of Hollywood. The fashion show was held at Saint Brigid’s Centre for the Arts. Marcelle Benedicte has now presented five fashion shows in Ottawa.

There were designers that participated in the event were Sidow Designs, Peach Berserk (from Toronto), L’Hexagone Menswear, Aria Frances and lastly, Marcelle Benedicte. Each ranged from the elegance (Sidow Designs, Aria Frances and Marcelle Benedicte) to the contemporary (L’Hexagone) to the pop culture look (Peach Berserk).

It was an excellent night to enjoy the fashion show and chat with a few people. Kudos to Émilie Parisé, the founder of Marcelle Benedicte to keeping the Ottawa fashion scene going.
