THROWBACK THURSDAY: NTA Presents: The 2019 MS Winter Gala

” Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the world, with an estimated 77,000 Canadians living with the disease. While it is most often diagnosed in young adults aged 20 to 49, younger children and older adults are also diagnosed with the disease.”

Disease does not discriminate. It doesn’t care what colour you are, who you voted for, or who you date. If it’s coming for you it’s coming for you, and so far for many there is no cure. That is why supporting research for medical innovation is so crucial.

This year we at NTA had the honour of donating our time to throw a fashion show for the MS Society of Calgary.

On January 31, 2019, some of Alberta’s top models and beauty queens came to strut their stuff at CIBO downtown Calgary in support of this amazing cause. Donning outfits from up and coming designers from and connected to Olds College. The designers included:

Sasmitha Delawa: Fireflies for Lanterns

Sherri Reeves Samantha Brunner: Electric Vibe

Cristal Cherry-LeBel: Designs by Miss Cherry

Kaare-Ann Madden and Janet Chung- Lunairy Designs

Katharine Funk- Aecor Lifestyle

Jason Way- Parlour Apparel and Design

Suzzy Anibueze- A2MeFashion

Nadine Arthur- Out of the Bloom

Bret Stankowski, Stewart Schamp- Nine5Nine7

Danielle Carolina

The show was completely SOLD OUT, and was a success and hit for the MS society and all those who attended. We were honoured to have Global TV as an exclusive media partner, as well as other publications notably our friends at Standout Publications! Always great to see you Douglass Cressman!

Some of my favourite photographers graced us with their presence and skills. My personal friends and renowned photographers Zev Abosh and Doug Wong, and up and coming photographers Victor panillilio, Myron Macapagal, Maya Klimecki, Kenneth Fung, Vian Esterhuizen, Jessica Clemens.

Everyone had an amazing time! But the NTA people barely slept, woke up, and got right onto our next big project… huge in fact…
