Runway Monthly kicked off their monthly series with a fantastic lineup of fashion talent and runway worthy outfits. Displayed against the beautiful backdrop of The Bank, Runway Monthly exhibited works from N.R.T. Fashions, Crystal Mckenzie, and Pout Clothing.
Kyle Nylund hosted the evening in a stunning cocktail dress that literally lit up the room with little LED lights. A wondrous cityscape draped, petalled, ruffled, rolled, and wrapped Kyle in a creative art that elevated him to fashion stardom.
The Bank overflowed with fashion patrons, who cheered on their favorite designers. Runway Monthly proved Calgary has a hunger for fashion and that Calgary also has the talent to sate fashion addicts’ cravings through beautiful collections and professional organization. Many fans are looking forward to the next show on May 15th, 2012.
Nicole Rita Tomney proves that she is more than just a high fashion designer. In this collection, Tomney uncovers her talent in ready-to-wear clothing. Her womenswear featured desaturated colors matched with lace and fur to create a very romantic and edgy look.
I also love the pronounced necklines of the menswear. The collections felt very commercially targeted but still retained that signature N.R.T. flair.
Crystal Mckenzie styled the runway models with loose fits and flowing fabrics. The sheer dress paired with print leggings caught my eye with its edgy black trimmings against a feminine, white fabric. The other outfit shown here screams Diana Ross, style icon!
Kirsten Summersgill showcased a clean cut and tailored collection for Runway Monthly. I love the interesting shapes Summersgill used to color block – undefined geometrics that flowed with the shape of the body. Also, the gold details against the black canvas created a very classy look – great for daytime to nightlife wear.
