Fashion Jam for charity

FASHION JAM 2010

This was the second annual Fashion Jam for charity and this year I had the wonderful chance to attend and help out with the event.  It showcased an array of local designers who are extremely talented, most of them are recent college graduates.  I met a lot of wonderful people and took a lot of great photos so without wasting any more time I will share them with you!  I took over 200 so here are a few of my favourites.  There will be more photos uploaded on the Facebook group if you wanted to check it out:

 Model showing off for Media!  It was hard to get some of these pictures because lots of photographers were in my way.
Gorgeous models posing backstage!!!  Every single girl (and guy) was so sweet and great to work with!
 Model down time, more cuties playing with props!  This was where the hair and make up was done too.
 In these last two photos, we are going to play Where's Waldo except the Fashion version which is of course called Find the Fashion Faux-Pas.  FIND THE OUT OF PLACE PEOPLE IN THIS PHOTOGRAPH WHO ARE STANDING WHERE THEY ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO.
This girl was one of my favourite models for sure and it was really making me angry that these annoying girls were standing where there weren't supposed to be people.
These girls positioned themselves awkwardly and here are a few more photographs they ruined. If anyone recognizes these girls be sure to yell at them for me, I almost did!
A little over-exposed, but I loved this model too.  She was amazing!  Photo once again ruined by annoying girls standing at the bar.
 Model coming close to poking the girls in the face.  I would have stepped another foot to the right and "accidentally" got them!

And some details:
Sheer pants!  Lots of shine and shimmer on this runway.
Clothes on the rack backstage ready to be worn!
What do you think of this daring ensemble?  The headpieces in this line were wild!
The host, Deirdre Mallehe, and special guest Justin Rego from the Bachelorette!

My outfit:
Me with Justin Rego's girlfriend!
They are a gorgeous couple, I don't watch the Bachelorette but for any haters out there, he is definitely happy!
I am wearing:
Club Monaco dress (gift from my new work!)
Jessica Simpson heels
Juicy Couture necklace worn as anklet
Necklace custom made by Helena Haughey

All photos taken by me!  (Except the ones I am in)
