There are many ways to bring out your patriotic side in your evening attire. You can go the route of incorporating plaid, leathers, furs – or even a fashion forward toque if you wish. Or, you may prefer to rely on the expertise of Canada’s finest fashion designers. After all, isn’t that what we love about living in a diverse country like Canada? 

We suggest supporting one of Canada’s Top 10 Designers…

We encourage guests to have fun incorporating the theme into their attire for the evening.  Those who embody the Canadiana theme might even have a chance at taking something special home at the end of the night to accentuate their next outfit!
