On November 3rd our team attended ‘Her Story in Focus’ at the Vancouver Art Gallery, in support of the Women’s Centre in the Downtown Eastside. There was a silent auction, a live auctioneer, and a fashion show, accompanied by canapés, wine and delicious desserts. The fashion show featured women from the Women’s Centre walking in the fashion show, wearing a garment that they designed from resources that were donated to the centre. Some of our favorite looks were the hand-beaded traditional dress outfits, which showcased beautiful workmanship. Mayor Gregor Robertson also attended the event, giving each woman who walked the runway a rose during the finale. We are very excited to hear that they exceeded their goal of $35,000 and raised $50,000 going towards safe space, basic needs, and empowering support for women of the Downtown Eastside!
