Fashion on Display goes out on a stylish note

Michelina Teti (Twitter) is a fourth-year journalism and gender studies student at Carleton University. Originally from Brampton, Ont, she’s a huge fan of a great yin yoga class, horrible television and hanging out with a pile of magazines in the traditional print form. She’s also Starbucks and agenda obsessed.

The window displays on Dalhousie Street have been returned to their usual form.

It’s true, Fashion on Display is over in Ottawa. I first wrote about the collaboration between eco-friendly boutiques and local artists in my original post a few weeks ago.

In a nutshell, here’s what the two-week-long fashion tour was about:

The tour matches locally owned eco-fashion boutiques, vintage shops and thrift stores with a local artist who then creates a window display for the shop that spreads a message. The cause behind the event is to promote conscientious consumption. 

The event was a great success and ended Thursday night with the Wrap-Up Bash at Cube Gallery.

Here are a couple photos to remember the night!

A big Local Tourist Ottawa congratulations to Malorie Bertrand and Maureen Dickson for such a successful event! We’ll window shop under your guidance any time!

Did you get the chance to see the creative shop windows presented thanks to Fashion on Display? Think Ottawa needs more collaboration between businesses and artists? Let us know! Thanks for the pictures, Michelina.
