Last Thursday evening I was invited to attend ‘White Night,’ a cocktail party and silent auction benefiting the Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters at Edmonton City Centre downtown. The event took place on a pedway inside the centre and included a fashion show highlighting ECC’s fine retail stores followed by 9 one-of-a-kind dresses created by Edmonton’s hottest designers. They had to use white fabric and incorporate a white ribbon in their dress as a symbol of the fight against domestic violence. If you liked a dress you could bid on it in a silent auction! Here are some photo's from the event:
Janis's super-fantastic ring from Oak + Fort
DJ's from Urban Metropolis spinning beats. Music makes everything better.
Beautiful white designs by the always-elegant Kelsey McIntyre (Serendipity), the innovative Nomin Gantumur (Handcuffs Required) and the unpredictable Cherie Howard who told me her unique creation was mummy-inspired.
This was my favorite dress of the evening, by designer Genette Salgado who dominated Western Canada Fashion Week with her Fall/Winter 2011 Evening Dress Collection last Spring. She didn't disappoint this time, either. The fabric, the cut and detailing of this garment was nothing short of stunning. Look at the back! I die.

I had to take a picture of Kristin in her dress. She got it at Value Village! (Value Village is a second-hand store here in Canada.) Doesn't she look cute? I love the nautical theme!
