PARKSHOW 2014 at National Golf Academy Golf dome is sure to be one of the largest PARK has ever held. The fact that PARK is able to up-scale the venue each year sure proves the potential of Calgary's fashion industry. This year, PARKSHOW 2014 is presented by Chinook Centre and has featured a total of nine Canadian designers: Coutu Kitsch, Rebecca King, Hunt Amor, Camp Brand Goods, EG Forge, Bano eeMee, KAZZ, LUXX and MALIKA. The event set up was similar to what PARK has done to their past shows, but the large venue provided extra space for each designer to host their own pop-up shop. PARK stands for "Promoting Artists, Redefining Kulture", so it was quite nice to see designers being able to interact with potential clients locally. Those of you who follow us on facebook might notice, I have been modeling for MALIKA since her first campaign. More exciting projects are on the way, so stay tuned. In about a year Malika Rajani has demonstrated her talent, versatility and insight on the current fashion industry. She is known for catching the trend before it hits and maximizing the use of all kind of differnt fabrics to its very best capability. Be sure to check her collections here. With another successful year of PARKSHOW, rumour has it that PARK will be expanding into other cities in Canada. I guess we will have to wait till Parkluxe 2014 to find out.
