Last night, Ottawa had a chance to celebrate a piece of New York Fashion Week with Club Monaco at CF Rideau Centre. Once again, Club Monaco nails it out of the park with elegant, feminine and classic designs for their Spring/Summer 2017 collection. The line was inspired by the French documentary Latcho Drom , which follows a family of travelers as they journey from Romania to India. Club Monaco remains true to their signature urban style, and manages to weave in the notable Gypsy details, like peasant tops, bells and frills, all inspired by the film.
Ottawa Fashion Stylist, Alyssa Beltempo, hosted the event that evening. She provided her expertise and dressed some of us gals throughout the night. Alyssa has a great sense of style and is in the forefront of slow fashion. Her messages focus on investing in classic, well-made, and preferably sustainable pieces; clothes that will last you a lifetime. It’s definitely a step towards living a minimalistic lifestyle and being more conscientious of where our clothing comes from. And if you’re looking for classic pieces to invest in, Club Monaco has you covered!

So what is ‘See now- Buy now’?
This new service is revolutionizing the way brands are going to market at fashion shows. For the first time, viewers have full access to the styles they see on the runway, and can buy the clothes they love. Hence the “see now, buy now”. Club Monaco’s flagship store in New York City had all the items of the Spring/Summer 2017 Collection available for purchase. Can you image?
