Over the past months, I’ve been involved with the Dare to Wear Love fundraiser, which celebrates the work of Canada’s fashion community while raising money for the Stephen Lewis Foundation. The DARE TO WEAR LOVE GALA caps off Toronto Fashion Week with a fashion runway event like no other, and it’s happening at the Ritz-Carlton this Friday – March 22nd!
Event founders Chris Tyrell and Jim Searle of Toronto-based Hoax Couture have invited 25 top Canadian fashion designers to participate. Get to know more about the designers and whom they will dress! The line-up of models includes: legendary guitarist Liona Boyd, CBC News anchor Dwight Drummond, eTalk anchor Tanya Kim, and many others!
As much as I’m looking forward to the fashion show, I’m also super excited about the SILENT AUCTION. All the money from ticket sales and proceeds of the auction will be used for grassroots organizations in Africa to fight the AIDS pandemic through the Stephen Lewis Foundation. There will be amazing items up for grabs including a luxury trip for two to Australia!
Come prepared to bid!
Trends may come and go, but generosity never goes out of fashion.
With Chris’ and Jim’s vision to make the world a better place, they’ve created an incredible event where we can ALL make a difference.
GRAB YOUR GALA TICKETS if you haven’t already, and I look forward to seeing you Friday!
