Kitsilano Kitty’s Closet created eleven pre-loved looks for this launch based on fashion capitals of the world. Our fantastic interns Tessa Doll and Alison Altena rocked backstage with the help of Ashley Nicol and helped all the designers over the course of the day. Special thanks to Edina Vanessa and Bailee King-Sakins for hair and make-up services.
