Most of you may never have heard of Alice Alishka…
I would consider her one of Ottawa’s best kept secrets, but now the secret is out! Alice is partnering with Workshop to offer you an amazing Alice Alishka Pop Up Shop/Trunk Show on Nov 14th from 6-8pm as part of Apartment 613‘s Support Local Month!
Check out this piece…how cute is it??
Here are the official goodies on Alice:
Alice graduated from the material art and design program at OCAD University in 2011. During the last year of her studies she started the company AliceAlishka. She has since designed and created five collections of women’s clothing. AliceAlishka strives to combine modern digital design and production technologies with traditional crafting ideologies to create practical everyday fashion. Each garment is designed to be comfortable and wearable by women of all ages, in a wide range of activities, from casual to semi-formal. Each season a series of textiles are designed using AliceAlishka’s hand made software. The software uses generative art techniques which are hand controlled in order to craft a unique image for each and every garment. The images are digitally printed, using eco-friendly inks, onto natural fibers. The textiles are carefully hand constructed, in AliceAlishka’s Ottawa studio, into comfortable everyday garments.
But what you probably want to know is what you are going to find at the Pop Up Shop, right? Well…Alice will be selling previous seasons’ collections at 30-80% off like amazing dress:
and this one:
and these beauties:
She has over 175 items in all (my heart is racing)!
Additionally, she will be selling samples and one-off items as well as a bunch of items that never made it into production or were just made to use in her photo shoots! She will also be making a few new pieces that use some of the previous season textiles including pencil skirts, a few cute simple dresses and loads of scarves in her own unique fabrics. (-:
And just in case that isn’t enough…she will be selling fabric packs (note: she makes her OWN fabric! How great is that??)!
So…grab your girlfriends and come down to Workshop for a night like no other…we can’t wait to get our hands on Alice’s collection and we bet you can’t either! (-;
