Kimberley Jev, Director of Calgary Fashion Media and leading fashion website CalgaryFashion.ca announce the launch of the Calgary Fashion Industry Awards. We kick off the first installment of the Calgary Fashion Industry Awards for 2011 with the Calgary Fashion Industry (Honorary) Awards.
As ambassadors of the industry, Calgary Fashion would like to honor and reward Calgary’s foundation of fashion professionals who have stood through the test of time with hard work and a steady dedication to their craft. We will also be hosting a unique online event that spans over the remaining days of December where our readers will get the chance to vote and reward Calgary’s up and coming members of the fashion industry today.
Up close and personal with a steady hand in the scene, Calgary Fashion has interacted for 4 solid years with the industries top boutiques, designers, bloggers, journalists and stylists as well as covered some of the hottest fashion events to date in the city. The Calgary Fashion Industry Awards aims to celebrate the cities finest.
“Calgary is on the verge of exploding as a top city in Canada,” says Jev, ”if we do not recognize the individuals who have put in the leg work for the up and coming, it will always seem as though we have had no real fashion in the city. The first installment of the awards, the Calgary Fashion Industry “Honorary” Awards is about recognizing the people who have maintained fashion careers in the city, honed their craft in the city and worked diligently and professionally with others locally and internationally. It’s time for us to celebrate the professionals who have given us a reason to exist as a fashion publication in Calgary.”
