We are too often inclined to just go to the closest mall and buy clothing in any ordinary retail store… and we buy clothing that half of the population owns.. What we really need to realize is their is a large amount of VERY talented clothing designers in our city, who also offer affordable prices and badass/unique designs, and for some, even custom made! Now what more could you ask for?

STRIPES & PINS charity Fashion Show!
May 10th at 7h30pm
Saint-Brigid’s Center for the Arts
I had the pleasure, with my assistant Brianne Lacasse, to work with some great local talents at the Marcelle Benedict Stripes and Pins Runway Show. I worked along side 4 other Makeup Artists from the region of which included Rosalind Chen and Krista Gregory. We were focused on re-creating a 1920’s vibe, bringing the prohibition era back through the makeup the models would strut that runway in. Im seriously in love with my line of work. Check out the backstage photo coverage here.
The local rising stars Andréanne Jobin and Sterowashout offered live music for the evening and the guests were treated with a dance performance by Extravadanse and free snacks from Wontonmama. The event was also equiped with a fun photobooth brought to you by Shutterbug!
The designers present were; Boutique L’Hexagone, Aria Frances and of course Marcelle Benedicte as headliner. Also presenting his graphic clothing designs was Babes & Gents. See their work on the runway by checking out Moose Photography‘s event coverage here!
We all had such a great time, the stress levels were kept at a minimum, the people involved were very pleasant to work with. It was seriously such an amazing event, very well organized. Big high five to the organizing team!
