Red Carpet to YYC: Oscar Fashion for Local Events

Red Carpet to YYC: Oscar Fashion for Local Events

It’s well known that red carpet events, like the Oscars, serve as inspiration for the succeeding year’s runway trends, and particularly event-fashion – especially weddings! This is just one of many reasons the Boom team have always been avid students of the Academy’s style; the pieces that make their way up and down that much-lauded scarlet rug will undoubtedly shape the look and feel of what people want to wear to events, and- by proxy- the feel and fashion of the events themselves.

To give you a local angle, we spent an afternoon with Boom friend and muse, Lauren Barrie of The Nobles Model Management, trying on some Oscar-worthy attire at Holt Renfrew to see what sort of looks will translate well from the red carpet to YYC events!
