Love Her ~ Calgary Gala

Love Her Calgary Gala at the Hotel Arts, hosted by philanthropist W. Brett Wilson and Canadian comedian Jessica Holmes was an evening of fashion, comedy, cocktails, music and fundraising in support of Ovarian Cancer Canada and it was a can't miss affair.

The evening started off with a cocktail and hors d'oreuvres and a silent auction which was promptly followed by the introduction of Holmes to get the evenings entertainment underway. Guests were delighted to be greeted with a hilarious two song set by Holmes doing her comedic representation of Celine Dion's singing style and perfect French accent. The guests were crying they were laughing so far. It was a total icebreaker and a fresh way to start the night!

Following Holmes introduction, the fashion show sponsored by Judith and Charles began. Three model groupings came down the runway featuring business wear, business casual and weekend wear. Main style points included; bright pops of reds and purples, thick bold black and white stripes and form fitting tailoring. It was right on trend and seasonality.

Post show, Wilson took the stage to host a live auction that was both fund-raising and funny!

The night proceeded to include a speech by Dr. Prafull Ghatage, a musical performance by violinist Sophie Serafina and a VIP reception at the Raw Bar.

Overall the night was a success with a sparkling mix of who's who in Calgary, fine foods, fabulous comedy and a crucial cause. Well done Love Her!

Classic patterns, modern suits ~ Men

Fall brought an enormous explosion of pattern on suits and sport coats for fall, a resurrection of very traditional menswear fabric like windowpane and plaid.  The cuts are slimmed down and more modern than these classic prints have been in the past.  Making them very wearable to the younger generation, merging the old and new and making it fresh.
