On Thursday (February 27th), I had the great pleasure of attending the Awakening event put on by RAW for an evening of great art, great music, and cutting-edge fashion. It was held at the Revival Bar on College Street, and the dress code was cocktail attire. So I donned my red sateen Dynamite strapless dress and some black heels, and headed out for what was sure to be a night to remember!
Two of my good friends were actually featured in the show, which is how I first found out about it. Breila Rose Rathlou is a skilled photographer from Guelph, Ontario, and Michael Archibald is talented painter located right here in the city. I was incredibly proud to see their work on the walls of such a busy, high-energy event. You can check out their work below, and I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

My favourite part of the evening would definitely have to be the runway shows! These were the three designers were featured in the fashion show at this event, along with some photographs I snapped of my favourite designs.

There was even a hoop performance out on the runway.
Overall, just a really amazing night. I was so glad to be a part of it, and I hope there are many more RAW events to come!
