The 4th annual "I AM FASHION" show is only a few days away! Back in full gear for 2012, the designer lineup has blossomed exponentially featuring designers such as Valérie Capiral of Eliza Diosa Clothing, Ennemi Couture by Meghan Simard, Efani by Nana Osei, only to name a few. I'm excited for this year's event which will be held at the University of Ottawa - Tabaret Hall. Not only does the I AM FASHION event give exposure to amazing talent in the Nation's Capital, it also benefits a great cause, proceeds of the event will be allocated to the charity, Fanm Deside in Haiti.

The power duo, Grace Mayele & Gwen Madiba constantly push the fashion envelope to a new limit every year, offering local fashionistas an evening to remember. Arrive at 6:30pm for a delectable cocktail hour courtesy of Kinki & Mambo Restaurants, whom will also be providing incentive gift cards for all attendees. Ticket holders will receive 20% off their food bill at Mambo on the 14th, after the I AM FASHION show. Make sure to come out & mingle after the event and celebrate with Ottawa's best fashionistas.

Exciting news! Designer & Co-Founder of I AM FASHION, Gwen Madiba will be showing her latest collection "Dare" at the I AM FASHION show as well as tomorrow, Sept. 6th at Montreal Fashion Week. Her latest collection is absolutely stunning and irrestible, her famous wrap around dresses are quintessential,  every woman should have one in her closet.
