We are so happy to be one of the first to announce an event that combines two of our favourite things: charity and fashion! The Tabitha Foundation Canada will be hosting their second silk fair at the Canadian Museum of Nature, June 24th from 5-9pm. This Ottawa-based charity has been raising money to rebuild the poorest of communities in Cambodia since 1994. Like the last event there will be several items made from fair-trade Cambodian silk including bedding, purses, bags and many, many, scarves (you’ll definitely see R browsing these). A new addition this year, Pearls For Girls, will be showing off their handmade pearl jewellery which raises funds for camps and education for girls in Lesotho South Africa.
Being that this is a fashion blog, we are also extremely excited to announce that there will be a mini runway show! Jana Hanzel Fashion Design, Emilia Torabi and Farah Studio will all collaborate to create runway piece made from Tabitha Silk. You will be able to purchase silk by the meter on-site and with hundreds of colours to chose from, you’re sure to be browsing for hours!
We’ve had the privilege of seeing some of the accessories, pearls, silk and designs first hand and it’s sure not to disappoint! MaisonStyle will be there all night long enjoying the runway, designers and browsing the hand-made goods. The brightly coloured purses are an inexpensive way to stay on-trend for summer (make sure to check out the flower embroidered clutches – M‘s favourite).
Details as follows:
Hope to see you there!
Your Fashion Fairies,
