A Successful Event

Yesterday I had the pleasure of having my jewelry designs featured in an eco fashion show in Toronto, Ontario! Since working in my new studio in Ontario, I've been looking for opportunities to connect with local, like-minded people. Luckily, I am a member of Fashion Takes Action and I received an invitation to participate in Fashion The United Way.

After contacting one of the organizers, Judy, I got connected with Francesca Miles - designer of beautiful handbags and clutches. It was decided we would do an accessories show - the models would wear all black and would carry Francesca's bags and wear ecocessories jewelry.

On Monday night I got a chance to meet all of the fantastic models that would be walking the runway wearing ecocessories designs! We decided who would wear what pieces, and partnered the necklace, bracelet and earring collections with Francesca's bags. We were both so impressed at how well everything coordinated! Francesca has an eye for choosing, bold and unique fabrics, and her high quality craftsmanship shows in every design.

Tuesday the models hit the runway for a great show. Behind the scenes, everyone had a lot of fun, and although there was a bit of pressure between outfit changes, everything went great! Thank you to the wonderful models who wore ecocessories jewelry, to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment for hosting this great event, and to Francesca for partnering with me in our runway show!
