Calgary is a cosmopolitan city, full of affluent audiences, hungry for fashion. But, anyone who lives here knows prices have soared over the past few years. For some, it’s hard enough to justify a vanilla-bean latte, let alone those killer Betsey Johnson pumps. So, what better way to indulge CIFF audiences, than with a heaping spoonful of Canada’s most reasonably-priced fashion line, Joe Fresh Style.
