This past weekend, we were invited to attend the Richard Robinson Grande Premiere 2013, showcasing the collections designed by Mr. Robinson himself and his talented students of his Fashion Design Academy. The highly anticipated event took place at the Hilton Lac Leamy in Gatineau.
Going in with no expectations, we were totally blown away by most of the designs that came down the runway. Some designers took the show up a notch with theatrics, adding to the overall spectacle. One had her models strut down the runway in ghoulish masks (take that, Adrian Wu!), while another designer had a model tumbling and pirouetting to open up her collection.
While hindered a bit by our lack of longer zoom lens, we were able to grab some shots of the designs. Again, we want to thank the Academy for graciously inviting us. If this show was any indication, Ottawa has got some serious fashion talent in the ranks.
