Fashion for a Cause

One of my favourite times of year is Spring.  It’s full of renewal and the end of cold dark days.  To kick off Spring, The Urban Rack, had their annual Spring Awakening Fashion Show and Charity Event.  As the GM and Assistant Buyer of the stores,  this is my creative baby each year and always love the whole feel of the event.

This year our charity of choice was Alexa’s Bus, who’s objective is to: Make BC safer as we reduce impaired driving related deaths and injuries 35% by 2013.  To read more about this wonderful organization click here.

The fashion show is always the highlight of the evening.  The show embodies the stores slogan by featuring “Real, Powerful, Beautiful, Women” in the show.  This year the model roster included fashion bloggers, designers, customers, and staff….which was me!  We ranged in age, body type, and height.  Yup, we’re real and beautiful!








Me with fellow bloggers Elim, Melissa, and Chloe.

The Urban Rack event was a night of fun, fashion, and friends.  If you wish to be invited to future events at The Urban Rack, email the store at
