Celebrating individuality at the Suits Me Fine Fashion Showby Rob Sysak, July 13, 2017
If you haven’t already heard, this CAMH highlight event brought it once again for the 13th year running. In the words of host and fashion icon Jeanne Beker, “positive vibes” were a plenty as clients, staff and members of the community gathered in CAMH’s Sandi and Jim Treliving Gymnasium to celebrate clients proudly taking the stage to strut their stuff.
“Year after year the Suits Me Fine team manages to define a theme that really captures the complexity of recovery in a few thoughtful words, and this year is absolutely no exception,” said CAMH President and CEO Dr. Catherine Zahn. “This is me – the title of this year’s show – is a reminder that each one of us is unique. And I can’t think of a better way to honour individuality than by celebrating self-expression through show-stopping fashion!”
One by one, dozens of clients took to the runway sporting their favourite outfits for a crowd of cheering supporters. With music, smiles and applause accompanying every client’s walk, the feeling of support and encouragement was tangible in the room.
