Petra Collins, Stylist Karla Welch Nominated For 2018 CAFA Awards

The CAFA Awards (the Oscars of Canadian fashion) nominees are out, and as usual, it includes a potent mix of Canadian fashion talent, including those who have both made it at home and on the global stage. Along with greats including Lucian Matis, Greta Constantine and Marie Saint Pierre, notable nominees this year include renowned celebrity stylist Karla Welch (whose clients include Tracee Ellis Ross, Elisabeth Moss, Lorde & Ruth Negga) and image maker/artist and curator Petra Collins, who has directed videos for Selena Gomez and photographed campaigns for Gucci (and starred in one herself).

Now in its fifth year, CAFA has also introduced the The Suzanne Rogers Designer Grant for International Development, to be presented to an outstanding Canadian designer or brand that is poised for international expansion. The winning designer, to be chosen by a panel of three judges consisting of Suzanne Rogers, international designer Erdem Moralioglu, and Canadian fashion icon Wayne Clark, will receive a grant worth $20,000 to expand their business.

CAFA will also honour Nadja Swarovski with the Global Fashion Business Leader Award to acknowledge her significant contributions to the fashion industry, championship of new and emerging designers and Swarovski’s sponsorship of international fashion awards including CAFA.

Meanwhile, Canadian fashion success story The Aldo Group, founded by Canadian businessman, Aldo Bensadoun, will receive the 2018 Outstanding Achievement Award.
