Out in Schools: Gardé Entertainment Fashion Show

It's that time of year again, when the sun starts to go down earlier, it starts to get just a tad cooler out, and the fashion shows are plentiful. That's September for you! I was lucky enough to be invited this past weekend to Gardé Entertainment's fashion event at the Imperial, supporting Out in Schools, a charity supporting LBGTQ teens dealing with bullying and homophobia.

The team at Gardé put together a fantastic show, featuring the designs of Eva Chen, Monika Georgieva, and Sandro, and short films from Out in Schools video contest. The venue was teeming with elegance: its seductive black and red decor was the perfect backdrop to a stunning lineup of couture and ready-to-wear designs. In favour of such a classy evening, I went for very some gatsby-inspired attire. I have never been one for headbands, seeing as how they always seem to have a boho vibe to them, but this beaded one felt much more glamorous.

One of my favourite designers, Eva Chen, showcased an awe-inspiring collection of gowns, some of which I've seen at VFW in the past. Her designs are spectacular, glamorous, and oh-so-feminine. While equally feminine, but with a lot less fabric, Monika Georgieva's lingerie collection had everyone 'ooing and awing' over her sexy little numbers. On the other side of the spectrum, Sandro's ultra modern designs for men and women were a real treat: the structured and minimalist silhouettes dominated the runway, but some spicier pieces, including some leopard print, snuck in there too. A delightful evening with a superb show and a great cause: who could ask for more?
