The Body of Work Fashion Show will have over 20 downtown designers, retailers, artists and business owners invading Maiden Lane to create an outdoor fashion show!

It is the likes of which most only get a chance to see at big city fashion weeks. For one evening only, Maiden Lane will be converted to a fashion runway for a free, all ages fashion show. “We want to show Windsor just how many hip, trendy and unique boutiques and businesses exist in the city’s core” says event organizer Harmony Peach.

Peach says, “The Body of Work Fashion Show will have a little something for everyone and plenty that is totally unique to downtown. People can expect to see designer wedding and event wear, urban fashion, traditional cultural apparel, world and one-of-a-kind garments, vintage and vintage inspired pieces, accessories and hair and makeup and much more all available exclusively downtown!” She goes on to note “Another unique component of this show will be the live art work walking the runway. We will have several models in full body paint. Each “Body of Work” expression piece will be created by local artists and the painted models will walk the runway throughout the show. Refreshments will even be served to the crowd by another downtown business.”

CTV News Reporter Stefanie Masotti will Emcee and music will be spun by DJ Kydd. Give-aways are valued at over $500.

Participants include: Hello Beautiful Custom Fashion & Bridal Boutique (Organizers), Pusher’s Collective, Lazares & Co, Full Circle Vintage, BB Branded Lifestyle and Sneaker Boutique, Little India, Casa Chavela, Windsor Independent, Ana Stulic, Dilly Daisy, D Creed Art, Denial Art, Aaron James, Olga George (The Henna Boutique), Christy Litster Art & Illustration, Inesia Hair Designs, Pretty by Katie/Au Natural Spa, The Squirrel Cage.
