Out of the Shadows Fashion Show
March 8, 2013 @ 8:00 pm$50
A first of its kind event in Canada, initiated with the intention to empower street-involved women by showcasing their life experience using art and creative expression. Hosted by International Supermodel, Yasmin Warsame, this premier event is an opportunity for those most marginalized in our community to create awareness regarding the reality of their lives on the streets of downtown Toronto. The women participating in the show are offering their intimate stories through fashion, photography and design to create a means for expanded resources and community awareness.
This is your opportunity to help us put a spotlight on the issues that impact some of our city’s most vulnerable citizens. No one deserves to be invisible.
Together we can bring them OUT OF THE SHADOWS
