Jim Searle and Chris Tyrell of Hoax Couture travelled to Zambia, supported by the Stephen Lewis Foundation, to visit some of the projects run by the foundation and to search for fabrics. Well, they found 45 prints in an African market place, and 25 of Canada’s top designers used the fabric to create pieces for the closing show of this year’s LG Fashion Week.
The show which happened last friday, was a fundraiser for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, and tickets sales were donated to raise funds for various grassroots organizations that are supported by the Foundation. The seats were filled with Canadian talent, who came to support Canadian designers and a good cause. The clothes were amazing, and were highlighted by some celebrity models; Dina Pugliese from Breakfast Television, singer Keisha Chante, and Tara Spencer-Nairn from Corner Gas. Also in the show was fellow blogger Dejana from Shopsteruim.com.
