Hello to you all!!! I know. I know. It’s been ages since my last post, but I’ve been busy!!! A good busy, where I was up to my ears with fashion projects. But trust me, dear readers it was worth it and will be worth the read! My fashion career in Wpg is slowly rising. I’m meeting a ton of great talented people devoted to their craft and contributing their creativity to the community. It’s an amazing thing, actually to be in the midst of creative people, committed to one project and making it all happen. Truly inspiring! and Let me give you a recap of what’s been going on since my last post.
A couple of weeks ago, I’ve had the opportunity to be involoved in a wonderful cause here in Winnipeg called, “Rock the Ribbon” fashion show which was a fundraiser event for breast cancer. But what made this event truly special was the models who rocked Nygard fashions were breast cancer survivors. Amazing, inspiring women who overcame adversity. The show, which took place at the Plug In Gallery in the Exchage District, was brilliantly organized by Meryl Kaye De Leon and Shayne Wiwierski, 2 college students who asked me to simply teach the gals to learn how to work the catwalk and strut their stuff.
When I started to get to know the ladies, I had the task of memorizing all their names which I was determined to know all of them. It was difficult at first, but in about an hour, as I got to know all the ladies, their personalities started to shine and was easily able to place a name to each one of them. From the ladies, I learned that in spite of what they went through, as women we all have beauty to share. Whether its inner beauty or outer beauty. Although this was a fashion show, the real beauty was within the ladies showing their strength, sense of humour, determination, perseverence and fierceness. Bravo ladies and thank you for being an inspiration to all of us women!
