HUDSON'S BAY SPRING 50 FASHION

I’M BACK CALGARY!

Nothing short of crazy but oh-so-amazing, beautiful people and shoes, accessories, fragrances, cosmetics and the #Spring50Fashion from the HUDSON’S BAY SouthCentre! That is how I spent a Thursday back in Calgary after flying back from Beautiful British Columbia in Victoria!

Never in my dreams would I have imagined that one of Canada’s oldest companies would reach out to me to collaborate! I was in short and I could not believe this had actually happened. But after a month of Facebook messages, emails and phone calls I was on a flight from Victoria back to Calgary to lend a hand and curate some beautiful models and appreciate some much-needed spring fashion!

The HUDSON’S BAY Southcentre Calgary was amazing in organizing some very on-trend complimentary services and snacks! From having professional eyebrow threading, on-sight manicures, the chance to have your hair & makeup done, all while listening to music or participating with a celebrity photoshoot through Revolutions Entertainment!

Hosting. Something that I have never been comfortable doing, but I love organizing! The HUDSON’S BAY put me in charge of managing the models & hosting the SPRING 50 Fashion Show that presented 21 Spring Looks… no pressure eh. I was nervous. Like any event, things are always going to go the way you didn’t except knowing that they will work out in the end. Things happen and you have to be adaptable!

I cannot be more thankful for my amazing girls that showed up to support this event! Being able to be part of the Calgary Community and share the opportunities that come my way, I have no issue sharing with others because it takes away from no one! Anyways, things moved fast, from fittings to makeup- the HUDSON’S BAY Team was brilliant!

Hosting. We had two SPRING 50 Fashion Shows to ensure that everyone in the store and following me on social media, could see what the HUDSON’S BAY offers this season! I was in love with the clothing! Thinking of what I can add to my personal closet!

Situations are going to take you out of your comfort zone, but you never know what you can accomplish unless you go for it!

A HUGE THANK YOU TO HUDSON’S BAY SOUTHCENTRE CALGARY FOR HAVING ME, ALONG WITH EAU CLAIRE PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THESE AMAZING SHOTS!
