Every year, my school holds a fashion show, “On the Catwalk“, raising funds for a worthy cause in the GTA. Area retailers contribute beautiful clothes to support the cause and showcase what they have in the pre-Christmas shopping season. Past causes have included such things as medical research and organizations providing support for troubled youth.
This year’s event was held on November 29 in the school’s Performing Arts Centre and raised funds to support the upcoming service trip of a group of students traveling from the school to Kenya with Free the Children, to participate in building a school in that country. This is part of an initiative intended to give “a hand up, not a hand out” to the people of that developing nation. This trip is through Me to We.
The Performing Arts Centre was packed from top to bottom with fashion-conscious, charitable-minded show-goers.
Thank you to participating area retailers, Grafic, Injoy, Lemonberry, Girls and Pearls, Want Boutique, Crossings, Trend, Flipside, Tinge Boutique, The One and Only Clothing Store, Old Navy, Tuxedo Royale and Over the Rainbow.
If you are shopping in the GTA, I recommend checking out these global-minded stores, which are definitely a cut above in the style department. Happy Christmas shopping and good luck with your holiday preparations!
