Western Canada Fashion Week is the longest running fashion week in Alberta, now the third-largest in Canada. Our primary mission is to create a community, not only a community of designers, but a community that unites all those who are involved in the fashion and beauty industries. This community further encompasses the media and production staff. We firmly believe that our emphasis on community makes for a one-of-a-kind event. We are unique among fashion weeks around the world, because we are not only a platform for established designers, we are also an in-house incubator for supporting new talent. For this reason, we have created contests like our emerging designer contest, and we are always evolving new methods of discovering and supporting talent. Our emerging designer night is very important, as it offers the opportunity for an amazing launch for the careers of young designers, providing them with the chance to produce and put together their own shows and work alongside established, internationally acclaimed designers. Our emerging designer contest has been highly successful, discovering and supporting the careers of many young designers from design colleges all over western Canada. However, our focus is not only on new talent. We offer all our designers, including those well-established, an extremely low cost to participate that nevertheless provides them with a sophisticated stage and set-up; world-class production; excellent local, Canada-wide, and international media coverage, and a talented photography team capturing their shows. Western Canada Fashion Week is local but with a global vision, enabling our designers to work locally but reach larger markets.
