ARTwear - The Art of Fashion in Calgary!!!

...On November 6th,2009 in calgary had place an amazing event, The ARTwear -the Calgary's Fall Fashion Show hosted by the Art Gallery of Calgary. This high - energy fundraising event featured a runway show highlighting the season's must-have fashions for women&men from some of the hottest boutiques in Calgary.
The first part took place at The Art Gallery of Calgary, where everyone had chance to see a Wearable Art Fashion Show by Dee Fontans. The second part of the evening included both runway fashion show as well as Show & Silent Auctions.
I was there with one of my client and his friends, which gives me not only chance to see new fashion trends but also an opportunity to meet awesome people. We had great conversation with Jill Belland, on location host of BT Calgary as well as I met great photographers: Sabrina May and Tara Whittaker whose some of their work you can see on my blog.


...I started my journey with polish magazine at the beginning of this year...Having chance to share the knowledge and passion with readers gives me huge satisfaction. The article below is one of few which had already been published before...I wish I could translate it to English :-)...


...Working with Sally wasn't work for me at all. Not only she is such beautiful woman, both inside and out, but also she was so easy going on her Big Day that being part of their Wedding Day was true pleasure for me...Thank you Sally and Mayonk!!!


...I met Liya and Thomas on their friends wedding in Red Deer, year before their own wedding..I had chance to do makeup for Liya for their engagement pictures so it was much easier and faster to provide my services on her wedding day - also because I was responsible for makeup for 5 of her bridesmaids..Unexpected - I also helped the Groom to look beautiful that day - and he really looked great - even without the makeup :-) Thank you both for being part of your Big Day!!!...


...This wedding was not "type: work" for me - it was rather having fun as Melissa was not only so calm on her Big Day, but also she was one of the nicest people I have ever met...


...My first wedding makeup services, here in Calgary...The Bride was so nice and it was a pleasure to do the makeup not only for her but also for her Mom and all bridesmaids...That was great wedding!!!


...I met Nishga right after I came to Canada 2 years ago. She was the winner of dance competition in Calgary and Rafal, from RWPhoto was one of the sponsors,giving away professional photoshoot for the winner...
Not only is she talented dancer but also she is beautiful and very easy going person, which made my job as a makeup artist so easy. Those pictures below are just samples of those taken by Rafal, where she look gorgeous...

BEAUTIFUL KELLY ROBBINS - Mrs. Canada International 2008

...Kelly is such beautiful woman that I didn't have much work with her makeup! Not only is she stunning but she is one of the nicest people I have ever met.. I think her inner beauty shines in these images. At that time - she was getting ready for Mrs. Universe contest and asked me and my husband from RWPhoto for few shoots for her portfolio..Thank you, Kelly - it was a pleasure working with you!!


...I had the pleasure of working with Ania as I prepared for a very important photo shoot. I found her make up skills to be amazing. I have had the opportunity to work with many make up artists and I found her to be fast efficient and precise. She was wonderful working with my features and made the whole experience wonderful. As a person I found her engaging and very fun to be with as well as friendly polite and courteous. I would recommend her for any company wanting to improve there employee reputation.

Warm regards,

Kelly Robbins

Mrs. Canada International 2008

...Having Ania as a makeup artist was a really wonderful experience. Saying she is a professional is an understatement! Her attention to detail, and her desire to meet your requests made for a great final product. My photos turned out better than ever and I still use them, as a professional dancer, three years later.

…I have enjoyed meeting Ania so much. I used her services for my engagement photos and wedding day (both very important days) and I could not have been happier. I felt beautiful and loved my make up! The quality of both her work and the make up line itself was outstanding. The make up is gorgeous and Ania worked hard to make sure I was happy and looked fabulous. Overall, my experience has been excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend her or use her again myself. Outstanding Service!
