THELOOK09 - Vancouver Fashion Show

THELOOK09 - Vancouver Fashion Show

THELOOK09 Youth Fashion Show (web site, map) is a fashion show hosted by the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver on Tuesday, May 12 2009 (the same night as the BC Provincial Election).

After you vote, consider heading down to the JCCGV at 7:30pm (which is open to all, regardless of faith) and enjoy a lively evening of style and entertainment hosted by Citytv’s Lunch Television personalities Kyle Donaldson and Michel McDermott.

The fashions presented at THELOOK09 are by local designers and fashion boutiques Jules & Eve and FAB Clothing, and the hair and makeup artistry is by Blanche MacDonald.

This fashion show is a fundraising event for the JCC Teen Lounge, making it a great way to show your support for youth in our community:

The JCC teen lounge provides a place for teens to learn skills through sports, leadership programs, afterschool care, fitness and community partnering programs.  Most importantly, it is a safe place with responsible young adults that get to know each teen by name and act as a sounding board without judgment.  It works as a gathering place for fun and mentoring.  Building teens holistic health is what the youth department does best.

Food for the volunteers and models is provided by local grocery stores Choices Markets, Capers Whole Foods Market, and Canada Safeway LimitedOakridge Centre.

Tickets are only $10 and you can reserve your ticket in advance by calling 604-257-5114 or by sending an email to thelook2009@gmail.com.

Fall in Vancouver (Photos)

A little break from the usual restaurant updates… here are a few photos I took in downtown Vancouver, BC, Canada last weekend.

I am using a Canon Digital Rebel XT which I purchased at Future Shop, an electronics and computer games store in downtown Vancouver. Future Shop (web site, map, 798 Granville St, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, phone: (604) 683-2502) is located at Granville and Robson, which is quite close to the Granville Skytrain station.

The pictures were taken near the Miro Building (web site) at 1001 Richards Street in downtown Vancouver. The Miro, built in 2004, is a concrete condominium tower on the edge of Yaletown containing upscale condos with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. There are currently 8 units for sale in the Miro Building, ranging from $312,000 for a 517 square foot one bedroom, to $719,800 for a 926 square foot Penthouse unit. (Browse the Mls listings).
