Emerging local and international designers will be showcased in a one-day Calgary fashion extravaganza, held March 26, 2011 at the Big Four Building in Calgary, Alberta.
Online PR News – 15-February-2011 – – CALGARY, AB -- Over 275 exhibitors will be featured at the region's largest fashion and beauty expose, held at Calgary's Big Four Building on March 26th, 2011. Fashion Has No Borders is sponsoring the event, which will showcase hundreds of brands, boutiques, and discounted designer labels. Consumers and retailers alike will have access to industry experts giving tips and insider information on the newest trends in Calgary Fashion.
Ticket holders will be able to walk through seven zones of fashion and beauty booths, participating in live makeovers by expert stylists, transformations completed by industry celebrities, and professional advice on every beauty topic imaginable. Over 10,000 people are expected to attend this Calgary shopping and fashion event.
One of the main highlights of the event is "The Fashion Theatre." A breathtaking performance featuring singers, dancers and models, this 35 minute spectacular showcases winners of the "Metro News Wearable Art Competition" as well as the top entry of the "Design A Prom Dress Competition." Plan ahead to ensure a great spot to watch this must see event!
"Fashion Has No Borders's Fashion and Accessory Expose fills the style void left between mainstream and high fashion for fashion-savvy men and women tired of current offerings at the mall," says Jeanne Beker, of Fashion Television and host of the event.
Each ticket purchased also serves a philanthropic purpose, as $2 from each ticket sold will be donated to ONEXONE, raising funds for their First Nation Breakfast Program. This program helps ensure children all start each day with a healthy breakfast, so that they are ready to learn and succeed, because education is essential to stepping out of poverty.
Purchasing tickets in advance has its advantages, since tickets purchased before February 28, 2011 will not only be $8.50 instead of $10 each, but will also be entered to win a $1000 shopping spree, as well as an all-inclusive trip for two, with 7 nights at the Breezes Resort and Spa in Jamaica. Tickets purchased at the door will not be entered into these giveaways.
"As a small business owner and designer who participated in the FHNB Expose, I am thrilled with the results not only at my booth during the expose, but the emails, phone calls, and visits to my store following the event. Any designer or business wanting to profile their company should definitely consider participating in future shows," said Holly Allen, owner of ChiChi Couture.
Even emerging talent from Alberta colleges will be showcased, giving retailers and consumers access to the very newest of Calgary fashion designers. High school field trips to the Expose will receive presentations by fashion industry gurus, and learn more about colleges offering fashion and marketing specialty majors.
