Happy International Woman’s Day

Happy International Women's Day

International Women’s Day is an important day to celebrate women’s social, economic, cultural & political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

Yet let’s also be aware progress has slowed in many places across the world, so urgent action is needed to accelerate gender parity.

Will you help challenge conscious and unconscious bias? Imagine a world where women and girls can thrive. This International Women’s Day, what will you do to drive gender parity? How can you help women and girls achieve their ambitions? The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won’t close entirely until 2133. That’s way too long to wait. Help ensure women and men’s contributions are equally valued.

Will you take action to help create an equal future where everyone’s strengths and differences are truly valued?

This event will take place in Westport Ontario at the 8 of March. Try to Promote Breastfeeding and SUPPORT women to rich there goal to breastfeed there babeis!

This annual competition recognizes up-and-coming talent and challenges designers to a series of tasks to determine one winner that is announced the night of the main runway show.

Contestants will be asked to submit an application and sketches of their work, once chosen to compete in the Emerging Designer Competition, showcase three of their designs to an elite panel of judges followed with a Project Runway inspired challenge. Five semi-finalists will be announced at the Emerging Designer Fashion Show, then they will have to feature their Project Runway inspired challenge at the main runway show on October 17th. The winner will receive a month’s worth of showcasing in a PAFW boutique accompanied by a trunk show and professional photographs of their looks featured on the runway.
