Ottawa is enjoying a major make-over. High-end shopping and eye-catching fashion are now staples on busy street corners and evening galas. Katrina Turnbull takes you to exclusive events and talks to some of the most head-turning trend setters in the city.


Episode 1: Alexandra Gunn

No one has their finger on the pulse of the local fashion scene more closely than Alexandra Gunn. As the Fashion editor of Ottawa Life Magazine and a former television anchor for Sun News, she knows all the hot spots in the city and has a few backstage stories to share.

Episode 2: Tami Varma

If you’ve been to a wild, elegant, over-the-top, barn-burner in Ottawa, chances are the party was planned by Tami Varma. She’s the creative mind behind some of the city’s most sexy and swanky affairs – which is also perfect way to describe her personal fashion style.

Episode 3: Dominique Baker

Few people dominate the Ottawa fashion scene like Dominique Baker. Sporting a popular fashion blog and YouTube channel, not to mention an impressive roster of clients, it’s no wonder beauty brands and major retailers are clamouring to know what she’ll do – and wear – next.

Episode 4: Stefan Keyes

You won’t find a man in Ottawa who treads through as many threads as Stefan Keyes. As an actor, singer, radio host, news anchor and morning show host, he keeps his wardrobe stocked with versatile and trendy choices to keep up with his public-facing professions.

Episode 5: Helena-Alexis Seymour

As an actress who has appeared in everything from an Oscar-winning films (Birdman), blockbusters (XxX: The Return of Xander Cage) and several TV series, Helena-Alexis Seymour dishes on how to best dress for auditions, red carpets, and everyday life in Ottawa.

Episode 6: Alexandra Badzak

The Ottawa Art Gallery is getting massive $100M makeover, and it’s all coming together under the watchful eye of executive director Alexandra Badzak. Alternating between swanky fundraisers and sweaty construction sites, she proves you never have to compromise fashion – or safety – when dressing for the job.
