Our first first-hand experience with Ottawa Fashion Week has sadly come to an end, how quickly it went by! Nothing like being right in the thick of things to be reminded of just how much you love something. Surrounded in the backstage mayhem by models, hair and make-up, and of course brilliant designers we couldn’t soak it up enough. There wasn’t anything we didn’t love about the experience but there was one designer in particular that we absolutely fell in love with: Elise Bourque aka Eliz Bourk.
Eliz Bourk, a native of New Brunswick and a graduate of the Richard Robinson Academy of Design, is a budding fashion designer who is influenced by fashion and street blogs, presented an irresistable collection of brightly-coloured, feminine and completely wearable pieces.
The only down-side? Her pieces are not available yet (except by contacting the lovely Eliz) but mark our words, once they are we’ll filling our closets with them.
Enamoured with Eliz,
