Richard Robinson Grande Premiere 2011


Last month was the Montreal graduates at LaSalle Signature and this month it's Ottawa's turn. The Richard Robinson Grande Premiere 2011 was held over the weekend at Hilton Lac Leamy. While the show consisted new designers graduating from the fashion design academy this year, the graduates demonstrated high quality of work and innovative designs while showing off their own style on the runway. Below are some of my favourites.

Even though the show was a lot of fun, I did notice that there wasn't one Asian model AND they used a Hispanic for the Kimono and a blonde for the Chinese attire in History of Costume. There are more than 1 billion Chinese and they can't find one Asian girl? Not even half? A Hawaiian? An ethnically ambiguous girl to make Asian? If Snooki can pull off looking like a waitress at a Chinese Buffet I'm sure they could've came up with something.

History of Costume

Here are some pictures of some of my favourite people who attended, including Helena in her hot Bebe dress and Angie from Angie's Models, Renee from Models International, designers Jana Hanzel, Emilia Torabi, Amber Watkins, and Stacey from Kania Couture, and Marcia B Creative. As well, who can forget the cute kids who walked Mr.Richard Robinson's runway show?!
