Last week, I had the honour of attending the 6th annual Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards. This was my 5th year attending the awards and I knew I had to bring it this year. Before we get into that, can I just say…. Dayum! I feel old! I have been doing blogging for 5 years now. What a journey!
The Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards is single handedly my favourite event in the social calendar. I refer to this event as The Met Gala of Canada. Everyone rocks Canadian garments and celebrates the success of our industry! This year, considering the fact that I’ve basically done it all on the red carpet at this event. I decided to do something custom. My custom look was created by Aleks Suzak who is the creative director of Balessa. This is not only the first time she’s ever dressed a guy. But this was also my first time wearing something custom made. The entire piece was crafted from silk crêpe de chine and hand painted by the designer herself. You can shop her collection here! https://balessaofficial.com. My hand bag was also a bespoke piece by Canadian handbag designer Anavi Designs. Custom Created to match the look perfectly, made from genuine snakeskin! All the diamonds are from Canadian Jewelry designer Mark Lash and The shoes are Maison Margiela.
I also wanted to give a shout out to my glam sponsors Amelia Ricci Salon and Beauty Bar Laser clinic!
Until Next year CAFA!
