The LuvLi Ladies’ Show
WHERE FASHION MEETS HEALTHCARE
Sunday July 24th, 2011
Bringing together Black females to support breast cancer awareness through the love of fashion and health promotion!
Toronto - This summer a unique event dedicated to empowering, educating and inspiring Black women hits Toronto. The LuvLi Ladies’ Show will take place on Sunday, July 24th at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto. With a fun '50s-inspired theme, the event combines health, wellness and fashion in one space, all for a good cause. Partial proceeds go to The Olive Branch of Hope, a support network focused on supporting Black Torontonian women diagnosed with breast cancer and also towards a bursary to an upcoming fashion professional.
The LuvLi Ladies’ Show will consist of two identical shows (11am and 3pm) including an exciting '50s-inspired fashion show featuring high-end apparel from La Chance Boutique, one of Toronto’s longest Black-owned fashion outlets; Mina Danielle Designs, African inspired designs by Dorothy Attakora and wedding gowns from Charlene’s Closet. Also, ladies will have the opportunity to purchase unique fashions, beauty products and specialty items from various exhibitors. Experts in health and wellness will educate ladies on ways to improve their overall wellbeing.
Distinguished, professional and motivational women will be featured as guest speakers including Pauline Christian, president of the Black Business and Professional Association; Karlyn Percil, the chair of The Harry Jerome Awards and founder of Bellemoun; Gwyn Chapman, TV show producer and founder of The Canadian Black Caucus; and Leila Springer, president of The Olive Branch of Hope. Also, fashion icon Stacey McKenzie, seen on America’s and Canada’s Next Top Model and founder of Walk This Way Workshops, will share her inspirational journey into the fashion world and encourage women to channel their “inner super star”!
The LuvLi Ladies’ Show is the creative concept of Lisa Sterling, a magazine professional, motivational speaker and community leader. Lisa wanted to fill a void by creating an event where women could unite to combine somewhat different yet complementary worlds. “I have a passion for fashion, health and wellbeing. I decided to create The LuvLi Ladies’ Show in order to merge these interests. The show provides women with a unique and colourful way to give back to the community, while promoting love and life!”
At The LuvLi Ladies’ Show, Lisa will launch LuvLi Ladies Magazine: an inspirational print publication that blends women’s fashion and health. LuvLi Again Boutique: a consignment store with high-end fashions for less will also launch this day.
