Do Me A Solid: Dare To Wear Love

You may remember from last year that we have a special spot in our hearts for the Dare To Wear Love show that closes every other fashion week. We’re excited that we get to work on the show again on Friday, March 16, and it promises to be just as inspirational as always. 

Amid all of the hustle and bustle during fashion week that focuses on style, clothing and make up, it’s nice to take a step back and think about how all this fashionable effort can be channeled into helping those living with HIV/AIDS in African countries.


The talented duo behind Hoax Couture have teamed up the Fashion Design Council of Canada, a number of amazing Canadian designers and some fun personalities to create a one-of-a-kind fashion show in support of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

There are still some unique bits of the show to be announced, but so far we’ve got some pretty exciting elements: 

Show attendees can participate in a live auction in support of SLF, with pretty spectacular prizes – including a trip for two to Kenya, (provided by the Canadian Kenya Tourist Board and VoX International) featuring a wildlife safari!

There will also be live entertainment during the show, and of course, the bright and colourful designs from various designers that include Brian Bailey, David Dixon, Adrian Wu, Paul Hardy, Linda Lundström and many other talented Canucks.

You’ll be sure to spot familiar faces strutting down the runway including TV hosts Dina Pugliese and Tracy Moore, one of Canada’s leading gospel singers Kathy Grant, and Donisha Prendergrast, granddaughter of the great Bob Marley. 



The show is always a sell out, so we’d recommend buying now. You can purchase tix here for $75 (or a VIP ticket for $300, which includes a front or second row seat and two (!) cocktail parties)
