This runway could have easily outfitted a James Bond movie. No matter that he’s not a Canuck.
As you’d expect from our neighbors to the North, models at the 2nd annual “Fashion Soiree” at the Canadian Embassy last Friday night strutted winter and sporty looks — fur-trimmed down coats and ski jackets from Pajar (the apparent “Rolls Royce” of Canadian winter wear) and active wear from Vancouver-based Lululemon.
But glam also got its major moment in the show emceed by Fresh FM’s Kelly Collis, with designer Christine Morton seducing with a showcased line of lingerie and Michael Kaye Couture dazzling with a set of evening gowns. B&C went Bond (read: black velvet jacketed sharp men’s suits).
All this not just to prove the fashionable North — natch. Instead, the Embassy proudly participates in the annual Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC), raising funds to support various charitable organizations in Canada. Friday’s Fashion Soiree served the United Way — and DC style — as several pieces from the show were available by silent auction.
