ON THE COVER —“The Toast Of The Town!” — 18
Raise your glass to all the successful local business professionals and celebrate! Our 22nd annual Biz X Awards edition features a nautical theme: “H2O — When Your Ship Comes In.” It’s a perfect business phrase, but we put a little twist on it as it also may mean, for 24 of the 272 award nominees, that his/her ship may have come in by winning a 2019 Biz X Award!
MODELS: From left: Bryan Dennison, Scotty Thompson, Linda Garrisi-Grivas and John Philip Llames. Linda is Owner of Angel Face Makeup Artistry (see “Lin Angel” on Facebook) and a part-time model. Male models were supplied by Jank Media & Design.
CLOTHING: Our cover men look dapper in the Biz X Award theme colour of navy in Ike Behar tuxedos with a black satin lapel supplied by Collins Formal Wear, 6000 Tecumseh Road East, Windsor. This is the tuxedo style the Biz X staff, Award Judges and celebrity presenters were outfitted in for the Awards Gala on November 15. Linda models a gorgeous indigo blue sheer Frank Lyman one shoulder illusion mermaid gown with tulip bottom. She also wears crystal chandelier earrings by Merx. Dress and earrings were supplied by Anne’s On The Avenue, 1695 Manning Road, Tecumseh.
