Attended Ottawa Fashion Week 2011 and Radio Show – S06E29

If you think Ottawa does not have a fashion scene, think again! It does and this past weekend was no exception as Ottawa Fashion Week rolled on at The National Gallery of Canada. It is my second time to attend the event as I went for one night for the 2010 edition. This time, I brought along my co-host, Lauren to the event. Hopefully we will chat about the event for Wednesday’s radio show on CKCU-FM.
The showing from local designers were pretty good. Pretty stylish and unique. I do forget that the designers are based in Ottawa and some of their designs are very creative and engaging. I’m not considered a fashion expert, I’m trying to enjoy the events happening in Ottawa. Saturday’s event was the most important because there’s been a lot of talk about Rachel Sin, as she’s been doing pretty well in the Ottawa fashion scene.
Oh yes, it was nice to meet some bloggers at the event. Kudos to you. The bloggers I saw around were Pop Champagne, Dernier Cri, The Fashion Keeper, and Your Sweet Bippy.
The funny thing for Saturday’s event was grooving and head-bopping to certain songs. In a way, I got distracted with the music than watching the models on the runway.
Speaking of music, I got to see some of the usual Ottawa musicians perform before the start or during the fashion show. They were Scary Bear Soundtrack, Adam Saikaley (formerly onΒ CBC Radio’s Bandwidth) and May-Jun.
Here are some photos from Friday and Saturday. I don’t have the designer’s names by memory. Hopefully some of the fashion bloggers will know it. I apologize with the image quality because I haven’t used a D-SLR camera in awhile.

Wednesday’s Radio Show – March 23, 2011
I had the opportunity to talk about attending Ottawa Fashion Week in the second hour of WildWorks.Β It was good to have my co-host, Lauren, join me at the fashion show and experience events in Ottawa. I forgot to mention the name of the designers on the podcast edition. I did mention some of the Ottawa-based designers on the live show. As usual, I was joined Erica and Digory as they provided their small jokes about having to wear “nice” clothing.Β I gave a shoutout to the bloggers (entry above) whom I saw at OFW. That’s my thanks to you. I should not forget about the songs I played throughout the show, as I am still hooked on The Naked and Famous, Lykke Li and Radiohead.
Also on the radio show, I gave a shoutout to RTHK’s Ellie Davis as she will be interviewing MGMT for Saturday. The band will be performing in Hong Kong on March 30. I am slightly jealous that she will have an opportunity to see the band.

My Weekend Warm-Up – S05E05

Kyrie Krismanson at The Black Sheep Inn on Sept. 26, 2009
It was an exciting Saturday night at The Black Sheep Inn as it was Kyrie Kristmanson headlining with guests, Jill Zmud and Adam Saikaley. I was with a few friends and my brother. It’s nice to have good company and talk about funny stories. To the performances, it was a surprise to see CBC Radio One’s AlanAquamanNeal be the MC for the concert. Adam Saikaley, who’s still a producer with the CBC started off by playing with the piano. It was raw and very different from the previous music I’ve seen and heard. Certainly, a nice way to start off his set. The second performer, Jill Zmud, who is an up and comer to the Ottawa music scene. She’s originally from Saskatchewan and now living in Ottawa. She brought a softer tone to her set. Her songs were sultry and calming, which felt engaging to the audience. She had a funny story about her previous guitar being broken thanks to United Airlines and mentioned about Dave Carroll and the broken guitar song.
Onto Kyrie, before she got on stage to perform, Alan Neal was still on stage and I told my brother about him wearing the Aquaman shirt. Alan heard me as it was somewhat of a funny moment because whenever I see Alan, he usually wears a DC Comics… or Entertainment heroes shirt. As for Kyrie and her trademark white furry hat, she delivered an excellent set where she performed her usually songs and addition to some new material. I was surprised with a few French songs she played. As usual, she got the audience to join along with the songs. Overall, great crowd to keep the performers excited on a Saturday.
You can check out photos on this link.
Here’s a clip I took.

I have put some videos from the Chinese songs I played on the bottom of the post. I still cherish the early 1990s Cantopop songs.
