Ottawa Fashion Week F/W 2012 Unicef Celebrity Charity show

When I was approached by Ottawa Fashion week organizers to help put together the Celebrity charity show, which was so close to their fashion weekend I had my doubts. Being from Ottawa I knew their reputation about them being unorganized and not having the greatest reputation in the Canadian fashion industry from the past. I decided to do it anyway because it was for a great cause.  After I began I realized that my concerns were correct because of all the problems I had with their team; then the show ended up being amazing and they raised money for UNICEF so I was content!

I enjoyed bringing all my friends and it was great that some amazing designers and jewelry designers agreed to help me at the last minute, It was a relief that I had so much help.

I really want to thank all my friends that walked, Leesa Butler, Gabrielle Miller, Rosey Edeh, Casie Stewart, Gail McInnes, Tre Armstrong, Erica Wark, the new people I met Solange Tuyishime, Elisabeth Manley, Leanne Lang,TL Radar, and a big shout to me good friend Cory Lee for being so amazing for walking and singing for this great cause.

Also big thank you to a MM Crystal Michelle Merizzi for coming down doing the jewelry and always supporting me with everything I do since the beginning. I also can’t forget the designers that helped me out last minute Rachel Sin, DeMOYO, Turbine,Sukhoo Sukhoo Thank you Thank you. It was such a great experience to be on the other side helping put together such a big show which gave me such a great experience and I wish Ottawa Fashion week the best as I will no longer be supporting!
