CALGARY, ALBERTA – On Sunday, November 20th, 2011 Ecole Holt Couture
School of Couture Sewing and Design (EHC) will host its elegant fashion event to raise funds for Making

of local musicians such as Sarah Vann with Lisa Jacobs, and Los Morenos. Guests can sip on wonderful
wine and nibbles from the Calgary Winter Club and receive an attractive gift bag.
Guests also have the opportunity to mingle with other fashion aficionados, and have the opportunity to
win a two night stay at the stunning Hidden Springs Retreat Guest House or a two night stay at Rocky
Mountain Accommodations where they know a great vacation means leaving your worries behind, and
bid on great silent auction items from original artwork to one of a kind couture accessories and more!
Once seated guests will experience what Couture fashion is all about by witnessing chic couture
garments modeled on the runway created by the students of Ecole Holt Couture School. Each model will
be made over by the experts from Lava Hair Group and each outfit accompanied by Lia Sophia Jewelry.
Also see some vintage couture garments created by the Founder of EHC, Elfriedé Holtkamp and catch a
glimpse of the couture process from the start to finish in the form of an haute couture silver wedding
gown accompanied by a stunning bouquet from My Day Designs and escorted by a 120lb Bernese
Mountain dog in his couture bow tie and collar. Guests can choose one of two fashions shows starting at
1:00 and 4:00 p.m. and tickets are $40.

services. Display booths include Lia Sophia Jewelry, skin care products from Max International, and daily
deals from Smart Betty.
