Earlier this week, we were excited to attend the 3rd annual Passion For Fashion Awards at The Toronto Fashion Incubator. The Passion for Fashion program is a merger of Youth Employment Services and Toronto Fashion Incubator, inspiring young fashion designers and entrepreneurs to explore the world of entrepreneurship in the fashion industry. The program is offered FREE and funded by the Ministry of Ontario’s Youth Entrepreneurship Program. Guests celebrated the twelve finalists who competed in the Fashionista’s Den Competition! Presenters for the evening included veteran Canadian fashion designer, David Dixon who presented the Eveleen Dollery Award in tribute to Dollery, the well-known Toronto socialite & long time Chatelaine fashion & beauty editor, who supported up-and-coming fashion designers, and Magnet Creative‘s founder Gail McInnes, who presented the Passion for Fashion Award.
Candice Faust, Kallvis Gents, Violetta Holl, Andy Jones, Natalia Kelenc, Sin-Young Gloria Kim, Sage Paul, Pranavi Suthagar, and Nadine Woods.
