Some people say that Calgary doesn't have a culture and the sad part about this is that the people who say this are mostly the people who lived here all their lives. I have been in Calgary for exactly 1 year 17 days now and sure, there is still a lot for me to learn in terms of being a Calgarian but Calgary does have a culture.
Chantel Traub, an amazing young talented designer from Calgary knows so much about this. Her Spring/Summer 2012 collection is all about appreciation and commemoration of Calgary. "I try to picture myself as a traveler in Calgary, and find interesting architectural areas and experiences to draw from for inspiration. We live in a city that does have its own culture is alive with a motivating society," the 23-year old ACAD graduate passionately said about her inspiration. Definitely, Calgary's culture is not lost in the young and can even be fashionable with the times! This YYC City Jumble dress was amazing hand printed (from drawing stencils for printing to hand silk screen print the fabric then sewing the garment)--every single detail of it. Look closely, can you see the Calgary Tower Downtown???
