Winnipeg photographer creates picture-perfect clothing


WINNIPEG — Photographer Carla Dyck has found a unique way to showcase her pictures — wearable art.

Her new line of clothing puts the city in a beautiful light.

Dyck’s love of photography took off about five years ago. As her passion for snapping pictures grew, so did her focus on images of Winnipeg.

The photographer knows investing in artwork can be a tough sell in a city with a reputation for being frugal, but she has found a way to share her magical cityscapes in a brand new line of clothing.

Dyck launched her first two pieces — Winnipeg leggings, which feature a collage of city photos, and the Exchange in Blue skirt, featuring shots from the historic exchange district — about four weeks ago.

And now with winter around the corner, she’s added the warmth of the holidays to a second skirt called Christmas on Main Street.

Dyck creates the design here in Winnipeg with strategically placed images, then has the fabric and clothing made in Montreal. The process makes this a distinctly Canadian product.

On a recent trip to Toronto, Dyck was stopped several times on the street while wearing one of her skirts, she said. And questions are swirling about what she has coming up next — perhaps something for men?

During an interview on the Winnipeg Morning News, Dyck talked about her exciting new venture that some might say is “picture perfect.”
