What is couture and haute couture all about really? We love addressing this question, and try to share as much insight as we have time for during the couture runway show at Ecole Holt Couture’s annual fashion event.
Now in the middle of preparing for its annual fashion event fundraiser for Making Changes Association Calgary, according to the event website, there is one month and 10 days left to Sunday, November 16th show time.
We began planning this next event the day following the last one, and set this date last November to secure the venue for 2014. Right after, we debriefed to identify the successes and malfunctions while everything was fresh in our minds, which then determined the changes in structure for this year.
Our themed photo shoot for the posters and banners took place three months ago. The EHC fashion event website is active, and tickets available for sale. As we sat around the table with our students, we noted some brilliant ideas for next year’s event while we brainstormed ideas to promote this show.
You might say that it would be a bit of challenge to keep track of last year, our current year and next year’s plans, while we are so focused on the present school term, and you would be entirely correct. This is entirely an extra-curricular activity. We depend on our community partners and volunteers to pull this event off every year, hoping that everyone had a positive experience and offers to help out again.
If it were not for the countless individuals who are incredibly supportive, and the great number of volunteer hours, we would not be able to continue the event each year. As a matter of principle, we do compensate professional services we receive, and appreciate that those services might perhaps be at a special rate for this cause.
All the proceeds from the event are passed on to Making Changes Association.
To say thank you to everyone is only a fraction of the gratitude we feel for your support, so we find it very easy to be appreciative to all of you, and thank you once more!
If you would like to become involved with the fundraising event, or sponsor the event please have a look . We do promote our event sponsors through social media (Facebook and Twitter) and recognize special donations.
