It’s going to be a beautiful autumn. Especially for Obakki.
The Vancouver-based luxury line debuted its fall/winter 2011 collection in spectacular fashion at St. Andrew’s-Wesley Church the other night. It felt a little like going to a wedding, actually – all the guests were lined up in pews, eagerly anticipating the dresses.
This was the first show Obakki opened to the public with ticket sales supporting the Obakki Foundation. And as creative director Treana Peake explained, it was orchestrated by a team comprised entirely of Vancouver talent. (Holler!)
And oh what talent it was! With neutral earth-toned palettes, lots of knits and a few lace accents, the silhouettes were ladylike, the effect polished. And they were each finished with a pop of bright red lipstick.
The whole thing managed to achieve the impossible: distract my beach brain for a moment and actually get me excited for holiday parties.
P.S. Follow The Anthology on Twitter and it’ll be a beautiful summer too.
The show was pretty amazing, wasn’t it?
It was nice running into you. :)
So good to bump into you that day. Love the hair and your outfit! Sorry I was a sweaty mess from the gym when I hugged you :-s
That was a great show last week! It was styled beautifully. The hair. The lips. For more show pictures check out the Obakki FB page: http://tinyurl.com/3eklfkt
