LAST NIGHT 🌟Canada’s most fashionable descended on Toronto to the @fairmontroyalyork for the 6th Annual Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards. Over the last year as the world has changed and advanced at a more rapid pace Canada has continued to grow and lead on the world stage. A common theme of the night among those who had the opportunity to grace the stage - whether they were our inimitable host @jessicruikshank, our presenters, our Honourees or our Award Winners - was that there is strength in numbers. This fashion family we have here in Canada, as CAFA President @vickymilner6 so eloquently put it in her opening address, is a powerful tight knit group that can only succeed if we all work together to support and uplift our industry as a whole. CAFA is pleased to present this evening and to be here promoting and championing all your hard work. Thank you everyone for coming!
