Masquerade fundraiser brings together artists, musicians, and fashion designers for Midsummer’s Night Dream in heritage mansion, 7 pm – 2 am June 28, 2013.
Bringing together an eclectic line-up of boundary pushing fashion designers, musicians, and a unique art installation, join celebrity TV host from “Say Yes to the Dress” Monte Durham, Mrs. BC 2012 Ami Muranetz, and the Miss BC contestants for an unforgettable night in a heritage Shaughnessy mansion.
The Midsummer’s Night Dream masquerade seamlessly blends art and fashion. The evening first unfolds with an outdoor art installation “Memories of Resonance” by Casey Koyczan, which sets the stage for Vancouver designers Evan Clayton, Okalani, Nenuphar Flower, and Poultice Jewellery. A Blanche Macdonald graduate, Evan Clayton’s bold designs have graced the catwalks of many shows including Vancouver’s recent Fashion Week and Eco Fashion week.
Live music will set the mood for this enchanted event. Acclaimed street artist David Morin will later be laying down his own distinctive style of guitar beats layered with looped lyrics, and expect to hear songs from his soon to be released album No Play. Rapper and reggae lyricist Kala from Soular will also share empowering anthems for evolving consciousness, while Adam Johnson lays down melodic guitar grooves that are reminiscent of down tempo Damien Marley songs.
Proceeds from the show will go towards Miss BC’s charity, The Cops for Cancer foundation, which supports many different programs serving the needs of those dealing with cancer. One of these is Camp Goodtimes, where every summer for one week, children aged 7–15 years who are living with cancer or brain tumors enjoy a week of fun and friendship at Camp Goodtime.
Infamous resto-cocktail hopping company Tangoo will be hosting the official after party! Combination tickets include entry to the Midsummer’s Night Fashion show, transportation from the gala to TASTE Lounge, as well as drinks and appetizers at TASTE. The first 10 purchasers of the Tangoo after party tickets get free access into Club 560 (discounted access into Club 560 will be given to other Tangoo ticket purchasers).
