do you dare?
Fashion week here in Toronto has officially begun.
Although I am excited to attend a few shows (and of course share some pictures with all of you), I am most excited for the Dare to Wear Love event, which is the closing show of the week.
Yes there are more than 20 designers coming together to showcase designs made with fabrics sourced in Africa...but what makes it extremely special...is that it is a show dedicated to raise awareness and funds to the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
The Stephen Lewis Foundation was founded to get funds directly into the hands of tremendously effective community-based projects working determinedly to turn the tide of AIDS in Africa.
Above are sketches sketches from designers (top to bottom) Pat McDonagh, Comrags and Hoax Couture. I can't wait to see the sketches come to live on Friday and of course be part of a great cause.
If you would like to donate to an amazing cause go to Dare to Wear Love.
