“A Canadian in Paris” Featuring Amanda Nimmo in Haute Couture Photographed by Benjamin Kanarek for the 35th Anniversary of Fashion Magazine Canada

There are times in ones career that can be considered land mark events, especially when one is paid hommage for their work by being chosen to represent a special landmark anniversary.

Fashion Magazine Canada are celebrating their 35th Anniversary November 2012, with Canadian Super Model Linda Evangelista on the cover, and it was for this event that Benjamin Kanarek was chosen to celebrate it by photographing the Haute Couture in Paris for them.

It was the first time in the history of Fashion Magazine that a full featured gamut of fashion designers, Haute Couture Editorial was shot in Paris and at the legendary Palace Hôtel de Crillon. This is a truly exciting exclusive.

Not only did Toronto born and bred Benjamin shoot the Haute Couture, but did so with Ottawa born Model Amanda Nimmo who donned the elegant garments with grace, poise and panache.

Amanda was adorned in Haute Couture dresses by designers the likes of Gaultier Paris, Elie Saab, the first Dior Couture Collection by Raf Simons, Givenchy by Ricardo Tisci, Chanel, Alexis Mabille, Giambattista Valli, Alexandre Vauthier, Maison Martin Margiela, Atelier Versace and Jantaminiau.
