Hope everyone (here in Canada anyway) had a really good Thanksgiving celebration! Our friends in the UK have already celebrated ‘Harvest Festival’, and our friends in the US will celebrate Thanksgiving at the end of November. Whenever, you celebrate it – it’s a good thing to be thankful and openly grateful for all the good things in your life. Like a smile it is contagious, and one thing to be thankful for generally leads to another, and another….
Here at the School we are thankful for the increasing number of sponsors supporting our upcoming 2011 Couture Fashion Event “Eleganza”. EHC’s Fashion Event features our very talented students work and is put on by Ecole Holt Couture as a fundraiser for Making Changes Association of Calgary, an organization close to our hearts with a mission to empower women in transition by providing relevant programs, services and resources such as ‘Walk in Closet’ which provides consultations on professional business attire to women facing financial barriers to join the workforce and offering gently used clothing and accessories, at no cost, to help make them feel and look their best.
This mission is closely linked to one objective we have here at the school, that Couture Design and Bespoke Tailoring is not only about quality of design and construction, but ‘you’ the client. Couture garments and their design should clearly be appropriate to the occassion, absolutely fit you well, suit your personal style, and make you feel and look your best!
So in aid of looking your best, Lia Sophia Jewelry – a Canadian company also dedicated to empowering women, is just one of our gracious sponsors.

Beverly Parkin will be at the fashion event presenting Lia Sophia jewelry for sale to our guests, which a portion of the proceeds from sales will be donated to Making Changes Association of Calgary, as well as being featured on the runway accessorizing the students looks!
