Winners of the Womenswear Designer of the Year award Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong of Greta Constantine.

It’s hard to believe that the Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards are only three years old. The night of celebration of Canadian talent brought together designers, style icons, legendary models and legends-in-the-making. “The awards have grown exponentially in terms of momentum and support,” says CAFA president Vicky Milner, “we launched four new categories this year. The student category engages the academic community across the country and the fashion innovation award is a great showcase of the technology side of fashion,” she adds. We can’t wait to see what the CAFAs have in store for next year.
