Winnipeg Fashion in the Spotlight: Shopology Project Conference #spcWPG17

Winnipeg’s fashion scene has grown exponentially over the years. Vintage fashion, street fashion and the latest in modern trends by talented local designers, are just a taste of what Winnipeg has to offer. If Winnipeg wasn’t on your fashion mecca radar, it should be!

Frequent independent fashion shows have become the norm here in the ‘Peg. Pop ups appear to be a monthly occurrence.

The most amazing fashion bloggers, designers and stylists I admire are from my hometown!  I honestly cannot list them all because I bet there are some I don’t even know yet! (p.s. let me know who to add, I’d love a complete list)

These folks I know or have met personally – I’m so grateful for what they do and the light they shine on Winnipeg (I’ve tagged their Instagram accounts). Make sure you check them out:

Now, picture this: all of these fine fashion folks, in addition to local retailers, photographers, marketing gurus etc all in one location, educating each other about their various roles in the fashion biz.

It’s happening!

    1. Incredible boutique shops in the best neighbourhoods
    2. Creative fashion that meets extreme temperatures
    3. Community! The local fashion industry seems to support one another, rather than see each other as competition
