On Friday, I was invited to attend Halifax's Mercedes-Benz Start Up Semi Finals at O'Regan's Mercedes-Benz. Mercedes-Benz Start Up is an initiative that provides a national platform to discover, mentor and support emerging designers from across Canada. The Mercedes-Benz Start Up was developed by Mercedes-Benz Canada Inc. and IMG Fashion, and is produced in association with the Fashion Design Council of Canada. The winners of the four semi finals [held in Edmonton, Ottawa, Quebec City and Halifax] go on to show at Toronto Fashion Week!
Although I managed to remember my camera this time, I wasn't as dedicated to taking photos as I should have been - It was hard to break my obsessive 19 year old habit of snapping every possible photo, and now it's hard to revive it. But I managed to get a few and borrowed a couple from Mo.
- Kayla, myself [obviously not camera ready - ORRR more camera ready than ever], Ruby and Kerrianne
- The lovely Tosan and Mo
- My very exciting VIP Media seating!
- The front row
- Kayla and I. Apart from the fact that I am in desperate need of a haircut [I blame you, wedding!], I'd say us girls clean up pretty nice.

AND THE WINNER IS...
