Ottawa Fashion Week Spring/Summer Collections 2014


Ottawa Fashion Week is a platform for National and international designers to showcase their work and talent. OFW has become an avenue of expression, creativity, and innovation and it is also a means of uniting the community in their appreciation of the latest trends in design and art. Showcasing an array of unique designers, their spring/summer creations will be displayed through individual runway shows with about 7 designers per night.

The city of Ottawa is filled with style conscious individuals who continually seek innovative ways to experience fashion. Each season, designers taking part in OFW meet this demand by presenting designs that combine sophistication with creativity. In between shows, the front stage lounge is the place to be! This complimentary area, which is open to the public, includes everything from live entertainment, to local jewelry and clothing designers, to beauty touch-ups, and a number of photo booths.

Find tickets to shows for your favorite designers on Ottawa Festivals website and keep up with all the upcoming activities on Ottawa Fashion Week.

Harvest Noir

Looking for something to do this weekend? Check out Harvest Noir Ottawa's secret pop-up picnic + vintage fashion + dj dance party.


It's the ultimate end-of-summer party and start-of-harvest ball. With a “chic” picnic, fashion show, DJ dance party which features TIMEKODE, and several flashmobs, Harvest Noir is a harvest feast for all the senses.

Groups of friends of all ages dress in black, celebrate local food and fine wine at the picnic, and then dance the night away in one of Ottawa's finest venues. HN2012 was Canada's 2nd-largest chic picnic, with 1,500 guests picnicking at City Hall and dancing at the National Arts Centre.

At the last minute, the location is revealed to the guest list. Elegantly-dressed diners head to the secret destination toting picnic baskets stuffed with locally-harvested food they've prepared, set up a feast at their assigned tables, and celebrate the end of summer and start of the harvest with friends old and new.
