Late last month, the Fairmont Pacific Rim hosted "A Fashion Statement," where some of Canada’s top designers came together for a runway show in the recently renovated lobby lounge. Presented in partnership with CAFA , it was the sixth fashion-focused event for the the hotel since opening in 2010. As they mingled, guests were treated to sips of Moët, canapés and live music on the new elevated stage, before taking their seats for the show.

First to grace the catwalk was Vancouver-based Christine Designs, featuring elegant lingerie looks in silk and lace. Famous for being worn by the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, and Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, Calgary’s Nonie charmed with minimalist looks and Di Carlo Couture of Montreal had us swooning with stunning bridal wear. Formerly of Toronto, Big Apple-based Victoria Hayes’ brilliantly-bright hand-painted fashions were a hit with the crowd and the collaborative work of UNTTLD’s José St-Jacques and Simon Bélanger closed out with an array of gorgeous pieces featuring custom prints and delicious fabrics.

Having scoped out their faves, guests were then invited to attend a trunk show on the third floor, featuring collections by all five designers. Canadian fashion at its finest, indeed! —Rachel Johnston
