Ladies in red showcase Hope designer’s work

Fashion show at Seabird Island helps raise awareness and funds

Red was the colour of choice at a special fashion show and celebration at Seabird Island on Saturday, Nov. 16.

Hope fashion designer Linda Kay Peters was featured in Red Road, Red Carpet, Red Dress, at the Seabird Island Band gymnasium, along with Coast Salish artist Ovi Mailhot.

Models were stunning in their red dresses and other creations, and the evening included a fundraiser for the Seabird Island Christmas Hamper program. Guests were invited to also wear red in honour of missing and murdered indigenous women.

Gerald Charlie and the Black Owl Blues performed music and donations of long grain rice and spaghetti sauce were accepted.
