Fashion Fallies reboot met with fanfare

Published Nov. 14 2017

The rejuvenation of Fashion Fallies on Friday brought an eager sold-out audience to Haliburton School of Art and Design.

Enlivened by energetic performances
dance music comedy poetry and stunning fabric creations the wearable art event proved that there is an appetite in Haliburton for something a little different.

Brigitte Gall set the tone
of the evening with her self-deprecating humour as MC leading the audience through one delightful creation after another.

While some items were
meant to be worn in everyday life others were created for the spectacle. The packed audience responded with huge applause and laughter to many of the humorous creations and rapt silence for the more serious performances.

The event was a fundraiser
for the Arts Council ~ Haliburton Highlands and served as a celebration of creativity.

Organizers Amy Brohm
Michelle Harris Sandi Luck Erin Lynch Chris Lynd and Emily Stonehouse brought together something special that kept people talking throughout the weekend.
