Chris Nicholls won the Image Maker award.

Early in February I was very lucky to fly to Toronto and attend the CAFA awards. I was also honoured to be part of the nominating committee of this incredible event. I’m dedicating a week of blog posts to this, as I think that Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards are an an important, exciting event in Canadian fashion and something we really need to nurture. It is Canadian Fashion Week here at Searching for Style (read part 1 and part 2) and for the final installation I am profiling the work of some of the winners of the CAFA awards.
