Little Black Dress Gala Vancouver

No comments:
This was the first Little Black Dress Gala, a fundraiser for At Risk Youth. Held on the main floor of the Vancouver Art Gallery, it featured a fashion show, live music, refreshments, a video and guest speakers.  I enjoyed the opportunity to find my own little black dress and accessories, all from My Sister's Closet, and the chance to meet other like minds, who found lots of creative ways to make their own signature looks and accessories.  The most important thing though was raising funds to support those who are homeless, just out of foster care, single parents, and the many who need support and direction in their young lives.Co-founders of Help Change My City Alliance, Alpha B. Kirabira and Christine Michelle, spoke eloquently about the work they are doing.

There were a lot of firsts at this event!  This was the first intricate design I saw, styled from curtains, it is a jacket by Sal-vij by Gisele Forget.

Marina Marchesi ( is a handbag designer who 
accessorized many of the fashion show looks).
