Although Calgary’s malls boast hundreds of well-known chain stores and are destinations in their own rights, the city also has a thriving boutique scene. In trendy neighborhoods like 17th Avenue, Kensington and Marda Loop, find independent shops carrying wears by local designers as well as international labels.
We enlisted the help of fashion and commercial stylist Leah Van Loon for her favourite boutiques to shop at for this season’s trends. In addition to knowing Calgary’s fashion scene inside and out, she has done styling for fashion magazines and international ad campaigns. She also provides image consulting, and personal shopping services. For more information email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
