Ah events. So hectic, yet such a fabulous opportunity for social interaction. As I write this, I am preparing for Ottawa Fashion Week in the capital. In my research, I have discovered some designers with amazing social presence and such interesting content.
The event runs from Thursday, September 29th – Saturday, Oct 1st and is going to be an absolute blast. As many of you know, I work for Corel and we have set up a wonderful experience for Ottawa Fashion Week. I think this event in particular provides us with the opportunity to do some fantastic things that the people and attendees of Fashion Week will be thrilled to see.
For those of you that are going, look for the Corel Photo booth when you arrive at the Convention Center. We will be taking your photos and giving you a keepsake printed copy that you can take home and show the rest of your family and friends. This is by far one of my favorite parts of the event – because rarely do you get printed photos anymore. If you still want a digital copy, we will tweet them to you!
On the social media side, there is so much going on. You can follow @OFW_Live for all of the official updates from the event. It may also be beneficial to follow the #OFWlive hashtag on Twitter for real-time updates from designers, bloggers, and attendees (you wouldn’t want to miss anything now, would you?). On our side (both @corelsoftware and the rest of my team) will be providing exclusive, live-coverage of the event – so you can catch all the backstage goodies!
Finally, and I must say my favorite part — we will be live streaming some of the designers shows straight to our Facebook page, so even if you’re not going, you won’t miss a thing.
It’s going to be a great show, and from the whispers that I’ve heard there will also be some celebrities at the event! @nicolemtv, @drumuzic, and @CoreyNiles will all be there, as well as many of the popular fashion, food and lifestyle bloggers from around the city.
I will do a wrap-up post after the event complete with highlights and social media buzz, so stay tuned & stay fashionable!
