This past weekend, the Cory Christopher design team had the pleasure of attending and participating in PARKSHOW Edmonton and ShowRoom Market. The three day event located at the Epcor Tower, began with their fabulous ShowRoom Market packed with talented Canadian entrepreneurs showcasing one of a kind apparel, accessories, art and apothecary brands.
The team used their creative juices by making and hanging over 100 Kokodema’s for the runway! Not only did it add an earthy feel to the URBAN JUNGLE theme of the event but it also added a unique Cory Christopher flare to the show!
For the VIP BOOTH sponsored by Londonderry, we incorporated moss walls around the venue adding some colour to the industrial feel of the building and providing a perfect photo backdrop!
Our Cory Christopher pop up shop was a curated collection featuring our beautiful vases, Kitras Art Glass, florals and succulents which were all avaibale for purchase. The design team had so much fun making mini terrariums with guests and sharing knowledge to those around us about what we do!
Of course, we couldn’t help but wander and make friends with other talented vendors and designers exhibiting their handcrafted pieces. Everyone had so many beautiful items, we couldn’t resist doing a little shopping ourselves!
Berg + Betts, a Canadian business crafting sustainable watches out of surplus leather off cuts had us adoring their beautiful masterpieces. It’s a thoughtful gift idea any recipient would love!
Next we fell in love with Smithstine, a local Edmonton jeweller, who creates intricate copper pieces by using a mini saw. The perfect accessory to any outfit!
The night ended with a unforgettable fashion show featuring the talents of Workhall, Okakie, Camp Brand Goods, Lennard Taylor, Suka Clothing, Gypsy Soul, Mada the Label, Duval and Berg + Betts . We can’t wait to see what the PARKSHOW team dreams up next and look forward to being a part of it! We were truly inspired by all the creative talent from each artist across Canada and enjoyed being a part of such an energetic fashion experience!
