Behind the Scenes

Getting ready for the Red Dress and Tie Gala and Total Woman Fashion Shows was so much fun that I wish every woman could experience it! We were treated like a lady!

Capri Salon and Spa pampered us and did wonderful makeovers, transforming us from Cinderella scrubbing the floor to the princess in the ballroom. I loved my updo, made me feel so elegant and a little bit taller.

Fred Astaire Dance Studio made sure we danced with our Prince Charmings! Jeff, Rory and Thom made us feel like we were dancing with the stars!

La Creme and Taya Fashions adorned us with apparel that suited each one of us and fitted us to make sure we looked flattering for our figures and fabulous for the fashion shows!

La Femme Privee showed us off in public with what we would only wear in the bedroom–luxurious lingerie. However, owner Liz, made sure it was tasteful–a little skin but a lot of style! What I wear under my clothes (even though no one sees) makes me feel feminine.

Fab put the cherry on top with their fashionable jewellery and accessories! Wow! What a beautiful collection of bling! We each received a dazzling Kameleon Pendant to treasure, a beautiful keepsake of this fabulous event!

Special thanks to Audrey and her dedicated team from Gemini Models. Audrey is the perfect Host for this event. She is not only stunning, but also a very loving person who treated us like real models. They made us feel fabulous and gave us an opportunity to walk the Catwalk in style and grace!

Ema Suvajac Photography captured the moments so our memories will last a lifetime! All pictures in this post are taken with my camera–professional photos by Ema will be featured soon.

With a myriad of people who make this event possible, I want to thank everyone with all my heart. Simon Dowrick does an excellent job as manager of the Grand River Shows and Events (a division of the Waterloo Region Record).

I treasure our new friendships more than diamonds!! I wish each one of my fellow fabulous friends happiness, health, success and wonderful surprises ahead!

    Beautiful post. You are spectacular. I think you should feel very happy that day. I love your hairstyle and your outfits in red, black and blue. The blue look is spectacular. That brave parading La Femme apparel, is a very elegant look, attractive and very discreet. Congratulations on your success.
