The Central Plains Cancer Services (CPCS) fashion finally returned, allowing cancer survivors and warriors to take to the catwalk.
CPCS helps out those in the community struggling with cancer by driving them to their appointments in Winnipeg and Brandon.
Executive director Sharilyn Knox says 12 models from Portage la Prairie and the surrounding areas attended the show, which took place on November 1st. The show, titled, “Fall into Fashion,” was the first fashion show CPCS has put on since the COVID-19 pandemic.
“(It takes) a lot of willing models who are willing to take part,” explains Knox. “Local retailers who are willing to work with the models and lots of volunteers as well.”
She adds, each model got to show off three different outfits, with clothing provided by Mil-Jeanne Flowers and Axcenz, 3’s Company Boutique, Pure Footwear, and Keystone Sports Excellence. The executive director explains there was also a change in venue, but it all led to a successful night.
“We moved to Prairie Fusion Arts & Entertainment this year,” says Knox. “They were just wonderful to work with and we know that we'll be going back to that venue next time as well”
Knox asks that anyone trying to get involved with CPCS reach out to their Facebook page.
