Long time no talk! I am currently in the midst of end of term deadlines hence the absence on this space. Currently writing about the economic benefits and impact on society, and revising for a fundraising final. In the mean time, here are some photos of the event I helped organize! I have newly joined the Latitude 53 special events committee, just in time to help plan the gallery's biggest fundraisers of the year - The Fine Art of Schmoozy. All of our planning paid off as the event went off without a hitch! It was absolute madness but all-in-all a stellar evening! Sadly I was too busy to take any photos, but here are a few from the event taken from the gallery Facebook page. Everyone dressed to the nines. Colour me impressed!
My outfit, a dress with watercolour nudes in Klein blue by Spanish designer Heinui. I LOVE it. Sadly didn't get any photos in it - more to come when I have time.
Some of the art up for auction. This light was my favourite piece!
My classmate Sheridan who volunteered at the event. SO much love for my classmates who came out to support us!
My friend Chaka engrossed in conversation. He had a painting at the event! It was nice running into so many people I rarely get to see.
My awesome pal Nicole and her man Brad! Nicole is on this blog a whole lot, because she's the bomb. I loved her dress she made! Nicole is a mod maven and I love it. She's currently designing her own 60s inspired line plans to show this spring!
Photos by Karen Hamel and lifted with love from the Latitude 53 Facebook Page.
And these by Jack Bawden, also from from the L53 Facebook page.
Me taking a break for all of two minutes to chat with Sarah and Elizabeth.
The lady on the right is my pal Morgan, who also had a piece in the silent auction.
And lastly, our dreamy mayor and his wife.
Great night! Can't wait to get planning for Parka Patio in January.
